‘X Exhibition’ holds a key focus on abstract paintings, installation, film, and photography. Here the viewer visually explores in depth, ways in which society effects emotion, gender, expression, and our every day life. Disregarding societies false views by expressing herself through both crafts, art and design; the craft itself to be how to have the ability to control what transforms our perceptions by expressing these constant battles through her accretions of works.
“Subconsciously we are influenced by societies views and dictated ideologies whether it’s racial stereotypes, cultures, sexual preference or gender roles, the list is endless. We cannot escape it, but we can educate ourselves, rather than give in to ignorance”
- Sade English

2016 marks the evolution of Sade English. Showing for two weeks at No Format Gallery, located at SFSA Studios is also where the Sade English studio asides. Formally introduced to the arts industry specialized in pattern cutting and Fashion design, Sade never conformed to the programmed standards of art and design. After making the crucial choice to depart just two years into her degree, The Anticlone concept was born.

Curating, designing, painting and creative direction Sade English has molded her skills to create numerous artistic outputs. All of which she will put on display to the public in her second curated exhibition within a gallery space covering 2,500sq, her biggest exhibition yet since showcasing at 5th Base Gallery in March 2015.
