The Norman Rae Gallery presents: “As is Painting, so is Poetry”

Tomorrow (The 25th of January, ’10)  is the opening of “As is Painting, so is Poetry” at The Norman Rae Gallery, Langwith College, York University – ‘ A showcase of work by ten sets of british contemporary artists exploring the relationship between written word and visual communication.’

Some of my illustrations from my last six months travelling around South East Asia will be displayed alongside work by some awesome artists; Amelia Crouch, Jon Owen, David Steans, Hardeep Pandhal, Kirsty Noble and Gareth Durasow, Nous Vous Collective, David Prosser, Lucy Cheung and Sarah Dee Barrett.

Plus it’s free, and there’s wine.

REVIEW

In other news, I’m currently in Kuala Lumpur, waiting for the Hindu Festival Thaipusam on the 30th of this month. More on that later…

We visited the Kuala Lumpur Art Gallery today, and I was very much impressed with a painting by Zhang Zhengmin, featuring a man covered in pig stamps throwing up over a bird.
