London, 1 December 2015 – Pharaoh and Wendyhouse Productions are delighted to announce that the renowned visual artist Geronimo aka Jumping Bull, one of the foremost rock artists of his generation, will be hosting a private view of his work with a show at the prestigious The Club at Café Royal, London. This comes ahead of taking some of the work on tour across the UK and further afield in 2016.The work will be hung in The Gallery of Cafe Royal’s members club from 11th January until 31st January 2016, and an invitation-only launch will take place on the 21st. This is a great chance for the art world to come face to face with the artist himself and, of course his much sought after work. Working with a variety of media and materials, Geronimo says simply, “My paintings are part of me”.
Self-taught, Jumping Bull met Keith Richards by chance when The Rolling Stones were touring. A firm bond of friendship was forged, but the band also influenced Geronimo’s work. Now The Stones are not only part of his life, but also the inspiration for his art – paintings, portraits and sculptures – with their legendary ‘tongue’ logo made from flattened Coke cans becoming one of his most recognised and celebrated pieces.
The exhibition at The Club at Café Royal will feature some of his most iconic work, as will the public exhibition tour that is planned to follow in 2016. This is an artist whose work is highly regarded, avidly collected and both challenging and entertaining.
Geronimo aka Jumping Bull works and lives life in New York and Brussels.
