Charlie Reed is an artist who specialises in painting, printmaking and drawing. He is inspired by the urban landscape and in particular London’s canals and rivers. He studied Fine Art at the Royal Drawing School, University of Brighton and Wimbledon College of Arts. His most recent exhibitions include If the Walls Could Talk at Alice Black Gallery and Constant Amid Change at Turf Projects. Charlie draws and paints in the landscape and later uses these studies to develop larger work back in his studio in Stockwell. Alongside his art practice, he also works as a secondary school art teach.
