The Printhouse Gallery, Dalston are proud to present London’s first bi-annual international illustration exhibition this February.
In a world of continuous movement, flying cycles of globes, spins of laundry, and generations of adobe, this inertia is often intimidating. With a desire to travel and a network of webs that will travel for us, with us, and against, it can be hard for many of us to come together. We want you to engage with other cities and the way they present their individual artistic discipline.
We live in an information overload, scrolling the blog stacks and lines of instas. February’s exhibition brings you a cut of the cut, and helps us to understand illustration, forming a solid platform for international illustrators to show us the possibilities of pen and pencil. In Drawn Together’s first instalment we see 6 emerging and established illustrators representing their work and pushing boundaries of traditional exhibitions. To come is also a global soundtrack from NTS radio’s Mamiko Motto. Curated by Tilly Stasiuk and Ruth Hanahoe.
This unique show is a key international event for illustration art and features over 30 original works from 6 artists. Named exhibitors:
