Oliver Dunsch at Moniker Art Fair
Next week we will be at Moniker Art Fair, where we will be showing works by a number of our artists including art by the photographer Oliver Dunsch.
German born and London-based Dunsch became fascinated with photography at an early age. He began taking pictures in teenage years after his grandfather passed his Leicaflex on to him. His first time visit to New York in 1989 had a pivotal influence on Dunsch’s practice. Vibrant street life and rhythms of the city shifted the artist’s attitude towards his art, street photography becoming a pivotal and reoccurring theme in his practice, and capturing everyday people and places became an obsession.
Mouthwatering by Oliver Dunsch
This summer has been a turning point in the artist’s career after his debut with Imitate Modern gallery at Rhythm exhibition in June. Dunsch gained further recognition by the art world following his admittance to Summer Exhibition 2016 at the Royal Academy, the world’s longest running open-submission art show. Oliver Dunsch’s work Mouthwatering has been selected from over 12 000 entries online and over 4000 artworks brought down to be assessed by the Hanging Committee. The work was prominently displayed within the exhibition and all three editions of the photograph sold during the private preview of the exhibition.

Dunsch is currently working on his Art of Commute project, which began from an observation of people on the London underground commuting to work. The Art of Commute has been one of Dunsch’s most significant and important projects to date, evolving into an exploration of the invisible moments of the everyday life. The theme, in his own words, “stands for my admiration for what people are able to do while they’re on the train, tube, bike or even walking to or from work.”
