Aiming to encapsulate the diversity of the Soho personalities in 2018, Frost presents 'Soho Tableaux', a wonderful image in a style reminiscent of the tableaux vivants of classical art.

Damien Frost's 'Soho Tableaux' runs at The Smallest Gallery in Soho all day, all night, from July - until the end of September 2018. Read the Run-Riot Interview with Damien here.

Taken during the time of Pride it features people Frost originally stopped on the streets of Soho as strangers to capture their portraits. The image encapsulates just one part of the wider mosaic and spirit of Soho, documenting personalities you might see as you walk through the Soho streets at night in 2018. This is at a time when they are becoming less visible due to the increasing commercial changes throughout the area that have led to the closure of many clubs and venues that these people frequently used.

About the Artwork:
Welcome to Soho. A place where you can be whoever you want to be.
Have you ever seen these people as you walk through Soho? Turning the corner from Old Compton Street into Dean Street? Or crossing Wardour Street into Broadwick Street? The people you see in this image are all around you, but are becoming less visible due to the increasing commercial changes throughout the area that have led to the closure of many clubs and venues that these people used.
