Charlie Spot (b.1994) is an emerging London based artist who began his career in 2019. He specializes in light box and street photography taken in the UK, Europe, US and Asia.
His work is a documentation and exploration of culture within countries and societies. This includes Women Going Gold, which focuses on the mix of cultures within the Middle East and access to varying forms of information.
Each body of work explores a pressing topic that affects our world today, including mental health and climate change, often using figurines and inanimate objects to highlight his message. Charlie uses the familiarity and nostalgia of his subjects to draw the audience into the pieces, which when discussed leads to new nuances emerging within the details.The work is intended to bring joy, reflection and conversation into new environments, welcoming all demographics to engage with each other.
Charlie has exhibited works in solo and group shows in London, as well as group shows in Portugal and at the former Rubell Museum in Miami. He is the founder of Subtitle Labs in 2022, a nomadic gallery that mentors, educates and supports emerging artistic talent globally.
