On Saturday 2nd September 2017 Goldmark will be opening its exhibition of signed, limited edition prints by the great cartoonist and illustrator Ralph Steadman. The exhibition will coincide with the publication of his new book, Critical Critters, the third in this epic trilogy of books dedicated to extinct and critically endangered animals made with author and film-maker Ceri Levy - aka the Gonzovationists. The collection will comprise 24 signed and limited edition prints of critically endangered mammals, insects and fish.
Originally labelled a 'Gonzo' artist, Steadman burst into the national consciousness by providing the illustrations for Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Since then, Ralph has provided illustrations for collections of poetry by Ted Hughes, Alice in Wonderland and Animal Farm, and has even designed a set of British stamps. Alongside a host of illustration credits, Steadman's previous books include Gonzo - The Art, Doodaaa: The Balletic Art of Gavin Tivinge, and The Joke's Over, For No Good Reason, a documentary about his life and work, was released in 2014.
