Imitate Modern exclusively present ’80s KID’, London’s first solo exhibition by Paul Oz.
From Formula One to Bristol Zoo, artist Paul Oz is never afraid to tackle memorable subjects having painted all creatures from a life-size elephant to the fastest land mammal, Jenson Button.
Paul Oz now returns his paint and pallet knife to an entire decade, selecting approximately twenty subjects to take on the 1980s. Carefully curating the decade, Paul Oz has selected approximately twenty cultural icons to feature in ‘80s KID’
A decade of significant political and social change, the ‘80s saw the launch of MTV and figures from Michael Jackson to Margaret Thatcher define a generation.
The continuing cultural and historical relevance of the 1980s is evident in the characters that are portrayed in 80s KID. Oz leaves no aspect of the decade unexplored, enabling visitors to step back in time, reminiscence and marvel at all that the 80s contributed to modern society.
