Stolper+Friends Gallery is pleased to present ʻYoko,ʼ an exhibition of ten new large format inkjet prints by British artist Don Brown. For fifteen years, the subject matter of Brownʼs drawings and sculptures has concentrated on the depiction of his wife and muse Yoko. This new series of prints, based on Brownʼs photographic documentation of his sculptures, marks the inclusion of a new medium in the artistʼs oeuvre.

He has been the subject of solo exhibitions across Great Britain and Europe, including at Le Consortium, Dijon (2007).
