Their latest publication, Pen to Paper, launches in the UK with an exhibition at Concrete Hermit on the 25th March. The book presents the most adventurous images of a select group of international artists whose work finds its genesis in traditional analogue techniques. The recent revival of analogue skills has injected immeasurable visual wealth into the world of illustration, fine art and especially character design. Artists reject the computer and channel their creativity through spontaneous freehand drawing. The spontaneity of this kind of creativity allows for a more free-flowing form of expression, leading to edgy and untamed beings, erupting with energy – the perfect antidote to the plethora of digital imagery abundant today.
The exhibition will feature a fine selection of figurative drawings, watercolours and collages. Limited edition prints by selected artists will be presented and available throughout the show, as well as advance copies of the book, which is to be distributed within the UK by Concrete Hermit.
The exhibition opens this Thursday, 25 March 2010 at 18:00
