The Horrors’ Faris Badwan to exhibit his art in London

Exhibition set to run from August 11 to August 29

The Horrors‘ singer Faris Badwan is set to showcase his artwork in a London exhibition next month.

The frontman’s exhibition, Drawing A Straight Number Nine, will run at the city’s Book Club venue on Leonard Street from August 11 to 29.

It will feature 100 new pieces – featuring drawings, projections and other artwork made by the former St Martins College student. August 11 will see a private viewing of the exhibition after which it will be open to the public.

Badwan said: “What I wanted to get across with this exhibition was how much of a part of my life drawing always has been. It invades all of my daily routine, be it in the shredded form of masking tape stuck to my walls, line-drawings on restaurant napkins or the sketchbooks I carry with me. It really is the one constant, solid thing in my life – a stream which runs regardless of what I happen to be doing or where.”
