Anthony Burrill June 21 – August 16
Graphic artist, print-maker and designer Anthony Burrill is known for his persuasive, up-beat style of communication. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York and has been exhibited in galleries around the world including The Barbican, The Walker Art Centre and The Graphic Design Museum, Breda. In 2012, he made his first foray into curating with the exhibition Made in L.A. – Work by Colby Poster Printing, at KK Outlet in London. The I LIKE IT. WHAT IS IT? exhibition at MADE NORTH Gallery in Sheffield features a selection of Anthony Burrill's best-known works which have been re-purposed exclusively for a new book of posters.
‘Burrill is a great designer because he makes you notice and appreciate truths that would otherwise remain dead and inert. His work has such resonance because it’s so true: we should all work hard and be nice.’ Alain de Botton
