Live Bait / Alan Berry Rhys

Following the success of ‘Carnada Viva’, Alan Berry Rhys returns to The Coningsby Gallery with ‘Live Bait’, an exhibition of original artwork, screen prints, and giclée prints inspired by Alan’s Argentinian heritage and his passion for the culture and mythology surrounding fishing.

The Parana River and the narratives that surround it once again provide much of the inspiration for this fresh body of work. The characters that populate the littoral landscape of these stories feature prominently in Alan’s compositions, giving soul, light, texture and colour to these folkloric figures.

Alan is a graphic designer and illustrator based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has exhibited in the U.S., England, Paraguay and Chile. His work is characterised by his admiration for the artisanal and for regional identities, presenting them through his affinity for typography and lettering combined with simple printing methods such as serigraphy, risography and paint. He is an established and successful commercial illustrator, working on commissions for brands and companies including 7UP, Puma, Nike, Vans, Miller, Jack Daniels, KFC, Chronicle Books, Pavilion Books, and AirBnB Magazine.
