Street artist opens first exhibition.

A CITY street artist who has been tipped for big things opens his first exhibition this weekend.

Going by the name of Articulate View, the artist describes himself as a political artist expressing his feelings through a spray can.

The artist grew up in Wood End, Coventry with few opportunities and it's as a youngster that he first began doodling on scarp pieces of paper, using art as an escape from his life.

"My school years were not the best," he said.

"They called it "behavioural problems" l called it "free thinking".

''In the end they moved me to a school for badly behaved pupils, which was a mad house. 'I will never forget how l felt when my teacher showed me some interest, it gave me hope.'' The exhibition, Can't Stop Freedom, is open in the Old Library in York Street, Leamington from 2pm to 10pm today and from 2pm until 8pm on Sunday.
