Giant-sized paintings go on show.
The exhibition, by artist Nahem Shoa, features portraits of black and mixed race people with themes of youth, race identity and urban style.
At 15 times life size, the paintings can take months and years to complete and are formed from traditional oil techniques with strong colours and abstract marks.
Nahem said: "My work aims to capture and celebrate the multicultural nature of our society.
"The finished product is more than a giant copy of a model's head; it is also a larger than life depiction of character."
The exhibition opens on October 1 and Nahem will paint a live model on October 8, from 1.30pm to 3pm. Paintings will be on display until October 16.
