A Gulf war veteran who turned his hand to art has been shortlisted for a cutting-edge art exhibition that aims to explore themes such as religion and the natural world.

Glenn Fitzpatrick, 41, of Gravesend served in the army for three years from 1990, touring the Gulf in 1991 as a front line solider and tank driver.

Selected by a panel, his piece Indian Ocean is a biro drawing that took a painstaking five weeks to complete.

He said: “It’s an insane amount of work, but it’s the only thing I’m good at.

“This show I really feel excited about and feel like after all my years of hardwork within the arts since leaving the army, I have finally made a recognised movement within the art world.”

His work will be part of the Religionis Violenta exhibition at the West Bank Gallery, London from September 7-11.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
