Food for Thought – Bank Street Arts – 2nd April-30th April

Artist, Poet & Musician Emmanuel Street will be exhibiting several of his artistic creations at Bank St Art Space. The original artistic creations on display will range from the abstract and the fantastic. The works were created using various media but mainly acrylic paint.

Most of Emmanuel Street’s original paintings are crafted in vibrant colours that somersault off the canvass and shake the unwary viewer by the throat. Others present somewhat more subtly in terms of colour yet still manage to invade the senses and memory, capturing the heart.
