This March we welcome Carl Slater:

Carl Slater is an artist and the co-founder and gallery director of KARST. Born in Cornwall and brought up in Plymouth, Carl graduated from an MFA at Central Saint Martins in 2006 and has since been doing projects both nationally and internationally. He recently relocated back to the south west to continue his practice as a visual artist and to head up Plymouth’s new artist-led space.
