A touring exhibition of top UK illustrators is coming to Middlesex University as part of a free national show run by the Association of Illustrators (AOI).
'Images 36: Best of British Illustration' presents the winning work of over 50 artists from the length and breadth of the UK who entered the AOI’s annual flagship competition.
The work has already appeared at Somerset House, and for six weeks will be open to the public at 'The Grove', Middlesex University’s new £80m centre for creative courses in Hendon.
The exhibition features exciting new talent and established names in illustration. It will also see the return of two Middlesex illustration graduates, Shane Noonan and Judy Lumley. Shane and Judy both studied BA Illustration and graduated in 2011.
The gold, silver and bronze award winners from each of the AOI’s eight competition categories - Advertising, Books, Children’s Books, Design, New Media, Editorial, Self-Promotion and New Talent – will all be on display and to coincide with the exhibition, an accompanying book ‘Images 36: Best of British Illustration 2012’ will be available.
The book brings together the shortlisted 350 artworks and profiles from 240 illustrators, including those featured in the exhibition.
The free exhibition runs from 25 Feb – 7 April 2013, and is open daily to the public in The Grove, Middlesex University, The Burroughs, NW4 4BT.
