About the artist

ROL, or Ray of Light, has been homeless for over five years. Having grown up in Croydon, South London, Ray has seen house prices and rent in and around the city sky rocket and the sense of community diminish.

Although still homeless Ray, is an active member of the arts community. His work on gentrification has been published by the Serpentine Gallery backed, Edgware Road project. He is a three time winner of the Café Art MyLondon photography competition and continues to volunteer for the Café Art community.
