Gimme Some Sugar – An exhibition by SJ Fuerst

2 May | 9:00 am - 23 May | 7:00 pm

Gimme Some Sugar

An exhibition by SJ Fuerst

Gimme Some Sugar is a solo exhibition by American figurative painter SJ Fuerst that playfully celebrates candy’s presence in pop culture. The paintings are bright, humorous, and seductive, what better way to represent society’s love affair with sugar? The show is pure joy, but not quite as innocent as the candy coating suggests.


SJ Fuerst’s work is beautiful and funny, and can be found in private collections all over the world. Drawing from fashion, pop art, and contemporary culture, Fuerst’s paintings create a surreal world where the animals are inflatable and the women feel so real you expect them to wink at you.

SJ Fuerst was born in Connecticut, USA, and studied painting in New York at Pratt Institute School of Art and Design, Florence at the Florence Academy of Art, and finally in London at the London Atelier of Representational Art. Fuerst moved from London to Gozo in 2016, and was named by Bristish GQ as one of the 10 best artists working today.
