Art of the Monster


An exhibition dedicated to monsters and their founders can be discovered at the Idea Generation Gallery in Shoreditch, East London, this month. The “Monsters Inked” show explores the development of monster drawings from appearing in the mind of the artist, to the sketchpad, and then to the finished illustration. The exhibition has over 100 monster illustrations displayed, ranging from Ricky Gervais’ famous book, Flanimals, to the work of graphic artist Pete Fowler, who contributed to the show with an 800 square foot installation named “Monsterism Island.”

Showing at the Idea Generation Gallery in London, 8th April- 4th May
