Printroducing: Nick Morley
Nick Morley, also known as Lincocut Boy, will be visiting the Belfast Print Workshop in February. Morley is an artist and illustrator based in Margate. He makes prints and drawings from Hello Print Studio with a particular passion for linocuts, promoted through his Linocutboy Blog exhibitions, writings and workshops. Illustration commissions include book covers for Penguin, Faber & Faber and The Folio Society, thirteen drawings for Frankie Boyle's book Work, Consume, Die and a front cover for Icon Magazine. The major themes running through Nick’s personal work are masculinity, heroism, human achievement and man’s efforts to leave his mark on the world.
Nick has exhibited widely across the UK and abroad. His work has been featured in Telegraph Magazine and a BBC2 documentary about the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in which it was picked out as a favourite by Vic Reeves. On the 25th there will be an Artist talk and demo open to the public, alongside a day of individual surgeries for the BPW membership on the 26th.
The talk is free of charge, to book a place please email [email protected] or phone the studio on 02890 231 323
