SOUTHFIELD, Mich., August 16, 2016 – Park West Gallery, known for fine art auctions on cruise ships, live art auctions in major metropolitan areas and art galleries in Detroit and Miami Lakes, Florida, is pleased to announce an amazing exhibition starring English artist Simon Bull.

More than 50 new paintings will be on display and available to collect during the “Language of Color” exhibition, held Aug. 27 – Oct. 6 at Park West Gallery in Southfield, Michigan.

An opening reception will be held on Saturday, Aug. 27 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., where guests can meet Bull in person and gain a first look at this special collection. Light refreshments will be served.

“Park West Gallery is delighted to showcase a collection of over 50 paintings celebrating Bull’s first solo exhibition at Park West Gallery,” says David Gorman, Park West Gallery director.

Considered a colorist for his use of radiant colors and gestural painting styles, Bull earned the Fine Art Trade Guild Award in 2000 as the top-selling original print artist in Great Britain, and is currently in the process of publishing a book about his artwork.

In 2004, Bull had the honor of working with Muhammad Ali to create a series of works depicting the boxer. A number of these works, signed by both Ali and Bull, will be featured during the exhibition.

“With bold colors and expressive brushstrokes unifying his paintings, Bull has not painted himself into a corner concerning content,” says Gorman. “Be it his vibrant landscapes and still lifes, or his paintings that highlight the life and career of Muhammad Ali, one is invariably astonished by the confidence and skill in Bull’s intuitive brushstrokes.”

Admission to the exhibition and gallery is free of charge. Park West Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. For more information and to RSVP for the opening, call 248-354-2343 or email RSVP@parkwestgallery.com.
