Streetwise characters such as Peck’em Pigeon, Barkin’ Dog, Foxall Fox, Bushey Squirrel and Purr-ley Cat take centre stage in Stephenson’s solo exhibition, something they’re quite used to after being placed in permanent collections such as the Marriott Hotel in Westminster, where their furry faces adorn each and every room.
Following a visit from the whole gang at Jealous Print Studio, the characters have been re-imagined and reinvigorised into brand new screenprint editions, as well as original paintings and a host of other new, very small editions.
Simon Stephenson will also be giving away a very secret, special original to the first 10 purchasers of the new works.
So don’t miss it. Or we’ll send Peck’em Pigeon round.
