Bio:

Nathan Eastwood
Living & working in London

Artist & Curator: I am the Inaugural winner of the East London Painting Prize 2014 with my new take on Social Realist painting in the age of the smart-phone. Plus I am a member of the organisation Contemporary British Painting. Drawing inspiration from the Kitchen Sink Painters of the 1950s my enamel paintings describe small moments in everyday life in meticulous detail. As an Artist-Led Curator I have made exhibitions and organised Panel Discussions.
