About the artists

About Vince Fraser

Fraser’s work has continued to develop and inspire, creating vibrant, innovative and evocative artwork. He describes his style as Afro Surrealism with various influences including the 70s and urban culture.

About Charles Emerson
Charles Emerson studied BA Hons Fine Art Photography at Falmouth College of Arts. His artworks have been exhibited both in the UK and internationally. His commercial work increasingly sits comfortably alongside his fine art, as clients are keen to draw on the techniques and styles that he has created within his personal practice.

About Lisa Wolf

Wolf’s projects combine digital fabrication methods and traditional materials such as clay, wood, fabric or metal. These physical installations and objects are connected to an ongoing research and interest in performance and sound.
