Tuesday 19th to Friday 22nd March: 10am – 4pm
Saturday 23rd March: 11am – 2pm
Salon Oman is a five day event to accompany an exhibition by the artist Dillwyn Smith, Morito's design consultant, inspired by his three month residency in Oman in 2012.
Dillwyn’s immersive experiences in Oman led to a rich cultural exchange, culminating in new influences on the colour, texture and fabric of his artworks. His established practice, always embedded in his personal experiences, is one where colour sings in combinations that reference Matisse or James Turrell.
The latest series, which also includes some extraordinary subtle landscape photographs, is an emotional and physical response to Omani culture.
In addition to the exhibition the Salon will include discussions and social events hosted by a diverse range of creative and influential people from London’s artistic scene:
