We have a very special event coming on Saturday 19th of May. Radical collage artist Winston Smith who has worked with Green Day, Dead Kennedys, dozens of other groups and publications, will be popping up in the Orbital Gallery. Original artwork, prints and posters will be available, as well as a specially-produced comic, exclusive to this rare UK appearance.
As if that weren’t enough in the evening Winston will be in conversation with the legendary Savage Pencil to discuss his art and motives, accompanied by a unique slideshow.
Joining Winston in this talk will be John Heartfield. John is the grandson of the well-known anti-Nazi photo montage genius of the same name. Heartfield the senior risked life and limb throughout the 1930s and the wartime era creating searing anti-Hitler agit-prop art to combat the Nazi propaganda machine. So now John curates an online gallery of his grandfather’s artwork.
Craft beer will be provided by the glorious Hopdaemon Brewery, and entry is free! So be sure to stop by for this very special event — it’s not to be missed!
