BE PREPARED FOR NICK MORLEY'S WORLD OF WONDERS
An artist and illustrator working in London, Nick Morley’s idiosyncratic and wryly humurous take on the human condition manifests itself through drawings, prints, books and interactive works. He thinks of his job as an artist as looking at the world with fresh eyes, slowing down time to notice things that might be missed in the scrum of modern living and looking to the past as well as the future for inspiration.
This April, Nick will be exhibiting at Material in a show titled Nick Morley's World of Wonders, an exhibition inspired by the world of discovery, exploration and the spirit of the pioneer.
To compliment the exhibition, Nick will also be running a linocut workshop where participants will produce a series of linocuts to illustrate a story, poem or other narrative. You can find out more by dropping us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, feast your eyes on this month's Icon Magazine with cover illustration by Nick Morley of MAD's Absolute Towers which are topping out in Canada. It explores the idea of originality in architecture and design by focusing on the work of two young practices.
