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.
