COMIXMAS EXHIBITION:
WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE


ComiXmas: When Worlds Collide is an exhibition of fantastic images from contemporary comic books and graphic novels. This stunning collection features work by the best contemporary comic book artists, along with images from past great masters of the genre. Normally viewed on the page, the comic art shown in ComiXmas will be displayed as prints at a strikingly larger scale, transforming them into gallery art, with spectacular results. Comic book artists combine image-making with narrative, and in this exhibition we can see the quality of the images and design standing on their own - while telling a story.

Included in the exhibition is work by Osamu Tezuka, one of the fathers of Japanese manga and anime; Hergé, the Belgian creator of Tintin; Woodrow Phoenix, creator of the award winning Rumble Strip; Andrzej Klimowski, illustrator of The Master & Margarita; Reinhard Kleist, illustrator of Johnny Cash: I See A Darkness; From Hell creators Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell, and many others. Also on display will be glass cabinets showing original scripts, sketches and other preparatory stages. More details…
