Mr Brown is a local artist who studied Graphic Fine Art at the University of East London.

He said: “In this exhibition I’m exploring the feeling of staring back into the eyes of another sentient being, recognising them as an individual, and acknowledging their pain and existence.

“I’ve chosen to share the stories of individuals on their way to slaughter for this.

“Due to the subject matter explored in this exhibition, I’ve chosen to sign all the pieces in the form of a livestock ID number instead of my own name, so as not to detract focus from the individuals.”
