Idris Khan's London Studio
Global art star Idris Khan's studio is located on a charming lane in Northeast London. The young artist creates his own unique work in a shared creative space with his wife and talented contemporary artist Annie Morris.
On Khan's side of the studio, pieces are being geared towards the artist's upcoming solo show at Victoria Miro Gallery. Khan has created a series of purple works consisting of aluminum panels, primed with black gesso, with text stamped in oil-based ink. He is also making a series of works with text stamped onto paper, and will produce a site-specific drawing in the gallery using the same technique but stamped directly on to the wall. The show opens in London on September 19th.
Khan's next exciting project is creating the set designs for a production of 'The Four Seasons' in collaboration with composer Max Richter and choreographer Wayne McGregor, which will show at the Zurich Opera House next March.
Idris Khan is internationally represented by prominent galleries Yvon Lambert in Paris, Galerie Thomas Schultein Berlin, Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, Sean Kelly in New York, and the previously mentioned Victoria Miro Gallery in London. Khan has also exhibited at such renowned institutions as The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, SFMOMA, The Saatchi Gallery, and The Centre Pompidou.
