Taymour Grahne Projects is pleased to present Love Letters, the first UK solo show by Filipino American artist Mikey Yates, opening at the gallery’s Notting Hill space on Oct. 23 from 3 – 5 PM.

Exhibiting all newly commissioned works, Yates’ intimate paintings serve as love letters to his family and friends, capturing transient moments of togetherness in a time recently characterised by separation and loss from the pandemic. Storytelling through portraiture, Love Letters explores the material and emotional imprints people leave on the places they inhabit and vice-versa, as he encapsulates the shades of home comfort and illuminates the mundane.
