‘TYPEface’ is an exhibition of works from illustrator Peter Strain, including original drawings, hand finished screen prints and giclée prints.
Peter will be presenting a series of new pieces inspired by scribbled lyrics he’s written over the past few years relating to morality, love, lifes anxieties and an increased need for tolerance. Each work is created by moulding together these words and the characters described.
Alongside these new pieces Peter will be exhibiting previous work that explores the idea of of creating portraits and figures from words.
