In 2015 Bryan won one of the two student awards at the prestigious Jerwood Drawing Prize. Many of the works included in this exhibition were made as part of his PhD research, completed in 2015 at Sheffield Hallam University.

Two large works form the core of the exhibition.The first is a drawing of Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights. Made up of 72 drawn panels its depicts the Garden of Eden, Earth, and Hell and measuring almost two metres long, it took Bryan over 300 hours to complete. The second large drawing is of Picasso’s Guernica (featured below). All the works that make up the show are drawings of works by other artists.

All the works in the show are for sale. All the money raised from the sale of Guernica will go to Bank Street Arts. Bryan has set a reserve price of £1500, with the sale going to the highest bidder.
