Artist Statement


Rudy Loewe (b. 1987) is a visual artist exploring black histories and social politics through painting, drawing and text. They began a practice-based PhD at the University of the Arts London in 2021, critiquing Britain’s response to black resistance in the English-speaking Caribbean, during the 60s and 70s. Loewe is creating paintings and drawings that unravel this suppressed history included in recently declassified government records. Their approach to painting speaks to their background in comics and illustration — combining text, image and sequential narrative.

Loewe completed an MFA at Konstfack, Sweden in 2018, receiving the Stavenowska graduate award. They were given the Arbetstipendium from the Swedish Arts Council in 2019 to continue their research into British and Swedish colonial legacies. In 2020 Loewe was the Early Years Artist-In-Residence at The Serpentine Gallery, alongside their collaborator Jacob V Joyce. In 2021 they participated in a number of exhibitions, including The Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy.
