Hove Arts: 51 Wilbury Road

Alain Guy

Alain Guy

They’ve colonised the whole of this imposing Hove town house this year. We started in the basement flat for Nick Lucas’ characterful children’s illustrations and tea and cakes on the terrace, then up to the main house. I was especially struck by two artists working on a hearty, energetic scale, here – Alain Guy’s hefty, grotesque and memorable heads of ancient-world warriors and John Beetham’s flamboyant great paintings of flowers, architecture and landscapes.
