Swindon artist David Bent is displaying his latest exhibition at the National Memorial Arboretum Remembrance Centre this month.

Bent's latest exhibition, 'Tribute 100', celebrates the achievements of the RAF over the last 100 years whilst also paying tribute to the men who served in the Royal Airforce - it is his reaction to honouring and acknowledging 100 years of the RAF. The highly and critically acclaimed artist combines aviation, art, and technology together to highlight the relationship and interconnectivity between them. Bent's style takes inspiration from RAF heritage, as well as familiar physical attributes from various aircrafts, and then creatively twists that with modern pop art to positively reflect the achievements of the RAF. Through Bent's images the exhibition explores the history and stories of Britain's servicemen - sharing their stories and accomplishments through bright bold colours. The exhibition is free to attend with donations welcome. For further information visit www.thenma.org.uk
