Last chance – Ben Turnbull at Saatchi – until 8 May

Chelsea’s Saatchi Gallery is the ideal location to enjoy a range of modern art to get you thinking. If you’re on the way to catch the new Saatchi exhibition at Duke of York Square this weekend, make sure you visit British artist Ben Turnbull’s exhibition, No Guts No Glory, a visual story of American G.I’s and their experience of war from departure to return. Hurry – it’s only on until Sunday 8 May.

A fan of American products and memorabilia, Ben Turnbull works from his studio in Battersea to produce mixed media pieces that feel reminiscent of the pop art movement. For No Guts No Glory, Turnbull cut up comic books and re-assembled them for an in-depth, thought provoking depiction of war.

This exhibition reveals the experience of American G.I’s at war through these Americana inspired collages. Combining well-known images of propaganda, fashion and historical imagery, Turnbull captures the journey of three marines in Vietnam, from the reasons why they joined the war through to how they died or returned home. The range of bright pop art colours contrast with the sombre mood of the exhibition for a show that depicts a fascinating new angle of soldiers and war.
