Boy George will prove the colourful spectrum of his creative credentials at an exhibition in Trinity Buoy Wharf on Thursday.

For one night only, the singer will add a selection of his personal collection of photographs and screen prints to the other multi-media work on display at Synthesis, a showcase spanning mediums of film, sculpture and art.

His work was previously unveiled at the Homotopia show in Liverpool last year.

Boy George said: "Photography is a way of capturing the past and the moment and redesigning it.

"I like the Hollywood approach to glamour.

"The camera tells great big lies and I love to make people look how they dream themselves to be."

His creations will sit alongside the work of 12 fellow creatives at the Electrician's Shop Gallery, housed in the E14 arts quarter.

These included sculptor John Humphreys, a forward-thinking artist who has showcased in venues across the globe, as well as Tony Smith, a gold medal-winning designer at the Chelsea Flower Show.

He added: " We can all be inspired by raw talent. New artists are often fearless."
