Joel Wyllie was born in London, 1986. He graduated from the Royal Academy Schools in 2015. 

Wyllie has a multi-disciplinary practice, consisting of  drawing, painting, print, sculpture and more recently, film.

He makes playful fusions of objects, terrains and characters, which are created through the collaging of multiple collections, both physical and remembered. 

Exhibitions include: ’Terra Forms’, The Concept Space, London, 2018. ‘Modest Villa Immense Versailles’, Kinman Gallery, London, 2016.’The Kennington Residency’ with Victoria Adam, London, 2015. ‘Tropical Lab’  ICA, Singapore, 2014. ‘New Contemporaries’ ICA London, 2010. 

Frank Kent is fascinated by the phenomenological dimensions of human experience and in particular the ways in which visual experience is integrated and inseperable from touch. The intelligence and humour at work is unafraid of what might be slight: he experiments with both a form of literalism and artifice embracing the synergy between a material and the hand that crafts.
Frank graduated from the Royal Academy Schools in 2016. recent exhibitions include. ’So he pulled the right levers and you did the asking’ ArtLink, Hull 2017. ‘Unplanned’ at Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Greenwich university 2017. ‘New Work’ a solo show at Fold Gallery, London 2017 and ‘Energy is Eternal Delight’ a commission for Richard Booths Bookshop during Hay Literary Festival 2017.
