London has always been the European capital of art. The city symbol of creative freedom and vanguard European culture, the meeting point of encounters and proposals, a privileged location for many different, yet complementary, figurative paintings can set up a dialogue among themselves and with the local public. The artists displayed in the “vs London” exhibition have chosen figurative art as the focus of their research and experimentations, as genuine heirs of the solid and unquestionable tradition rooted in the great history of classic painting and sculpture, in all its different declinations throughout centuries of Art .

From objective and realistic images, to more embryonic figurative representations, stemming now from introspection and psychological and humoral research, now from the seduction of the external world, the works displayed alternate evocation and restlessness, lyricism and planning, in a contemporary world that is being offered decisively to London’s magic stimuli.
