Deadmansdust is a British artist who started his journey as a watercolour artist. Despite exhibiting widely and receiving many accolades such as the Windsor & Newton Young Artist of The Year he craved new challenges. After developing a passion for photography and digital art Deadmansdust’s imagination and talent developed into the unique style we see today.
One of the greatest pleasures of #FLUXExhibition is having the opportunity to watch incredible artists grow and develop their style. The wonderful artist Kailyn Deyn is showing at Flux for a second time. I’m a proud owner of one of her works and I’m so excited to be showing her new collection at Chelsea.
Read more about Kailyn below:
Kailyn has worked in many mediums from sculpture to performance, ceramics and photography, but now concentrates on painting as a means of expression; using oil paint for its translucency and organic clarity. Kailyn mainly works figuratively and with live models, to tell the story of the little explored recesses of the darker human subconscious.

Self taught or art school?
If you could own one work of art what would it be?
An artwork of Maurizio Cattelan, it’s not important which one.
How would you describe your style?
I think to be a “not” photographer in the usual sense of the term, but an artist who uses the photography as a painter uses a brush or as a writer uses the word. Essentially, I think I am a conceptual artist who uses photography.
It was not easy to make others understand my art. Sometimes I have been considered as questionable technical photographer. Sometimes a photographer monothematic …The truth is that I do not care about the result and aesthetics of my work. I simply capture fragments of reality and I emphasize them up to the state of mind where I am. The results are my artworks with their imperfections, their misunderstandings, their incompleteness: our life. I never conceived shooting as a technical exercise where everything was balanced in search of perfection. Simply it was not my purpose. Conversely I found in imperfection and movement the key to my expression.
Over the next few weeks The Palette Pages will be featuring interviews with artists selected for Artrooms. Set within the elegance and glamour of the Meliá White House, ARTROOMS is an interactive showcase of today’s most thought-provoking, mind-bending and awe-inspiring artists, carefully selected from across the globe by a panel of leading industry experts, art critics and buyers. Selected artists are invited to exhibit for free. This is London’s unique opportunity to come and scout art news and trends from all over the world.
We are delighted to introduce the art of Chris Horner.
