A quick post, to promote the work of a friend, who happens to have Italian roots and is a fellow Dalston resident (well, technically I live in Stoke Newington, but that’s not the point).

His name is Pierluigi Vecchi, and you have until 13th September (hurry!) to see ‘Neon and Water’, his first personal exhibition at the Other Cafe and Gallery.

His visually hybrid shots are inspired by themes of neon and water, exploring “the introspective worlds of silent inner turmoil and ultimate sublime redemption”.

All the works from the show are for sale, with a limited signed edition of 5 of each photograph.

Here’s a picture from the private view, which also featured musical performances by some of Pier’s friends.

(I’m actually on the picture. You can only see part of my glittery grey cardie though, because I am behind the red frame)

The Other Cafe and Gallery is an independent venue located between Islington and Dalston, which serves home-made food with a great selection of dishes ranging from traditional English breakfast to Italian and South-American dishes, in a lovely environment.
