This March, Cooke Latham Gallery in London is to host “Seen!”, the first UK solo exhibition of the South London-based artist and musician, Cato. From March 7 to 28, viewers can explore Cato’s unique blend of visual and musical artistry, which draws significant inspiration from his musical hero, Madlib. His work creates a compelling dialogue around identity and black culture through a series of larger-than-life portraits that incorporate collage, acrylics, and airbrush techniques.

Inspired by Peckham’s local characters, Cato’s debut is a playful yet introspective look at the act of ‘sitting’ for a portrait, challenging traditional norms and inviting viewers into a deeper understanding, symbolized by the exhibition’s title “Seen!”—a Jamaican term meaning ‘to be understood.’ His work resonates with the energy of animation and the dynamic spirit of his subjects, offering a fresh perspective on figurative art.

Cato’s “Seen!” at Cooke Latham Gallery not only highlights his innovative approach to art but also underscores the gallery’s commitment to showcasing emerging talent. Don’t miss this vibrant fusion of art, music, and culture that promises to leave a lasting impression.

Preview some of his new artworks above and visit the gallery’s website for more details.
