past exhibition | Zinger! | 1 August - 21 September 2014
Zinger! CANAL is delighted to present the ultimate feel-good summer exhibition on the Haggerston Riviera, with works by Phil Ashcroft, Emily Cole, Alex Gene Morrison, Michael Pybus, Sinta Tantra, Mimei Thompson and Paul Westcombe.

Phil Ashcroft is shortlisted for the John Moores Painting Prize. Emily Cole's painting 'Drifter' won this year's Holt Prize, and is exhibited at the Sainsbury Centre for Arts. Her works are held in numerous collections, including Arts Council and the Regional Assembly, Brussels.

Alex Gene Morrison's paintings will be exhibited at the Saatchi gallery in October 2014. He recently had a solo exhibition at Charlie Smith LONDON, and his works are held in numerous collections, including David Roberts Collection.

Michael Pybus' work is a techno-visual pop mash-up of remix and reconfiguration, mining the archive of kitsch iconography, and sending up both the absurdities and earnestness of fanatical consumption and post market nostalgia.
Alongside Morrison, Mimei Thompson and Paul Westcombe, he is a graduate of the Royal College of Art.

Sinta Tantra, a graduate of the Royal Academy Schools, is known for her dazzling geometric public art installations which draw on the motifs and colours of her Balinese heritage. Recent commissions include Newnham College, Cambridge, and a sensory garden for the Bristol Royal Infirmary.

Mimei Thompson's paintings have been selected for the Jerwood Painting Prize, the Exeter Open and the Marmite Painting Prize. Collections include the Arts Council Collection, University of the Arts, Royal College of Art, Kay Hartenstein Saatchi, One Aldwych and Clare Hall, Cambridge.

Paul Westcombe's intricate drawings of urban angst and smut appear on throwaway items such as paper cups, till receipts and travel cards. His work was featured in the 2013 Paper exhibition at Saatchi Gallery.

Commissions include a limited edition artwork for the
Whitechapel Gallery and a mural installation for NATO in Brussels.

A graduate of the Royal College of Art, his work is held in the collections of Saatchi Gallery, Royal College of Art, Grays Art School, Royal Scottish Academy, Art & Heritage Collections Robert Gordon University.
