The Girl with a Pearl Earring Censored, 2005 by Dan Proops
Artist Dan Proops is set to showcase a series of paintings at the Empire Gallery in London from May 1st until 13th. If the surname rings a bell, it might be because he’s the grandson of agony aunt Marjorie Proops, but, as an artist, Proops has gradually been making a name for himself. After featuring in over 25 shows since the age of 14 (exhibiting at some of London’s most prestigious institutions, such as the Cooling Gallery in Cork Street and the Serpentine Gallery) Proops has been attracting acclaim, in part through his painterly reconstructions of computer desktops.
