Discover Honor Titus, Down the Line, 2020
In the months since his breakout show at Henry Taylor’s Los Angeles studio, the former Cerebal Ballzy frontman Honor Titus has received a fresh flurry of attention. In January 2021 he opened a sold-out show at Timothy Taylor gallery in New York and, in October, he’ll debut a series of highly-anticipated new paintings at Frieze London.
Inspired by Les Nabis, a group of French artists who favoured bold, flat patches of colour and decorative elements, Titus constructs minimal urban landscapes suffused with a sense of old-world romance. Painted during LA’s covid-19 lockdown, Down the Line conjures the simple joy of playing tennis and the ‘nostalgia for movement, for dancing, for embrace’, as he puts it.
