What To See In 2022
The new year usually comes with a list of resolutions. From time to time we like to update you with the latest things to keep an eye on. So if your 2022 goal is to get immersed in the creative world, here are some recommendations in London and beyond.
Mexican Genius: A Frida & Diego Immersive Experience
In April, an immersive experience will bring over 300 art projections to London, highlighting every detail of Frida and Diego Rivera, the most influential names in Mexican art. The exhibition will be filled with the latest technology to give you the best VR experience. Find more information and booking details here.
Formally known by her maiden name Frida Kahlo, the painter has always been an inspiration. Her choices to use vibrant bursts of colour were highly influential when designing room 3 at Covent Garden Hotel. Here you will find we’ve created the entire scheme around her works of art.
Rachel Jones – SMIIILLLLEEEE
Full of power, colour and character, Rachel Jones’ paintings investigate a sense of self as a visual, visceral experience with the motifs of mouths and teeth suggesting vivid inner landscapes. For her, abstraction becomes a way of expressing the intangible. Her use of brush strokes and composition are inspiring. The exhibition at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac in London is open until the February 5th.
Tate Britain: Walter Sickert
The Tate Britain will open its doors to a new exhibition on Walter Sickert’s best paintings on April 28th. The German-born British painter was part of the Camden Town Group of Post-Impressionist artists. His distinctive and radical approach to setting a subject matter made him one of the most important and influential British artists in avant-garde art in the mid to late 20th century.

Helen Frankenthaler: Radical Beauty
Between now and April 18th, Dulwich Picture Gallery are presenting the first major UK exhibition of woodcuts by leading Abstract Expressionist, Helen Frankenthaler. This exhibition shines a light on the artist’s groundbreaking works, which appear painterly and spontaneous with expanses of colour and fluid forms. Find more information and booking details here.
The Radical Beauty exhibition coincides with the Monet x Frankenthaler display, which brings together two seminal works by Claude Monet and Helen Frankenthaler to reveal similarities in the artists’ ambition and approach. Make sure you don’t miss it!
Mark Hearld, Raucous Invention: The Joy of Making
Mark Hearld, visual artist and printmaker from York has created a new body of work including collages, prints, collage sculptures and a collage mural comprised with a series of individual images. Each image works as a solo piece, but when placed together they create an incredible large-scale work.
The exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park is open until February 6th and it’s the perfect excuse for a weekend getaway.
We can’t wait to get out and about. These exhibitions are bound to inspire us to create new projects and designs!
