Graphic novels are an exciting area of the ever-expanding illustration domain. With a rich historical province in both Asia and continental Europe this tradition is now become fast a growing and exciting area of publishing in Britain, with many leading artist turning their talents and attention to his often wordless medium. Appealing to all ages these stories and the images depicted therein are often challenging and controversial in their themes – but also thought-provoking.

Alexis will be on hand here at the gallery on Wednesday 20 July between 6-8pm to speak about his knowledge and interest in Graphic Novels and give a gallery tour of the work we have on exhibition.
