Printin’ Backwuds is an exhibition looking back at over 50 years of fine art prints by one of the world’s most renowned and politically charged cartoonists, Ralph Steadman. AOI Patron, Steadman’s direct and impulsive drawing style brought a new level of savagery to British political cartooning in the 1960s, and has continued to have huge impact throughout his influential and extensive career.
In a year that has seen cartoons profoundly affect international relations, Printin’ Backwuds will reference Steadman’s extensive career and his ongoing experimental relationship with the fine art print. On show will be over 30 rare works from the artist’s archives, including never-before-seen prints that have been countersigned by Hunter S Thompson and others that bear the bullet holes from the gun of William Burroughs.
