Carl Randall gained a BA (Hons) in fine art (painting) at the Slade School of Fine Art before completing a Master of Arts course and a doctorate in fine art painting at Tokyo University of Fine Arts. His work has been seen in group exhibitions in the UK and Japan including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition (2003, 2009) and BP Portrait Award 2002.

This group portrait is of the artist’s friends and colleagues in Tokyo and was painted from life. Although the noodle shop brings people together to eat, Randall says: ‘the central theme is urban isolation – anonymous strangers together but separate.’
