THE lead singer of an indie band turned artist has his work on display at The Spring.

Greg Gilbert’s miniature biro and pencil drawings have drawn wide acclaim with one, Tsar Biro Miniature, currently on display in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.

The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre, in East Street, Havant, is hosting an exhibition of his work until October 25. It is inspired by family photographs and old postcards from the 1970s.

Sophie Fullerlove, the centre director, said: ‘We are really excited to be showing an exhibition by Greg.

‘His drawings are often influenced by historical resources depicted in a modern medium.

‘This links really well with The Spring and our ambitions to bring history and heritage to life in vibrant and contemporary ways.’

Jennie Gilbert will also have her unique ceramics on display.

The domestic ware combines her love of form and decoration with incredibly usable pieces like cups, bowls and teapots.
