Internationally renowned artist Zadok Ben-David brings his award-winning work to our Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art at Kew Gardens this autumn.

Zadok Ben-David: Natural Reserve is the first UK-based solo exhibition to incorporate new and existing works by the artist since 2008.

The exhibition centres on themes of tragedy and hope, as well as shining a uniquely creative light on the relationship between humanity and the natural world.

Brand new and extended artworks are featured, including the stunning 360-degree installation Blackfield which is made up of more than 17,000 etched, hand-painted flowers.
