'Monsters Inked - Inside the Minds of the Gods of Monsters' LAST CHANCE. NOW CONTINUES UNTIL 24TH OF MAY. NOT INCLUDING WEEKENDS

LAST CHANCE:

MONSTERS INKED!...CONTINUES UNTIL THE 24TH OF MAY EXCLUDING WEEKENDS!!

The Monsters Inked show traces the development of monster drawings from beginnings, deep within the psyche of the artist, out to the sketch pad and on to the wall. Pete Fowler - he who is responsible for the psychedelic album artwork of the Super Furry Animals - has produced an astonishing new commission for our 15 ft high wall, and has provided us with affordable, limited edition collector's items for you to buy.

Also exhibiting, for the first time, is Rob Steen - the illustrator of Ricky Gervais' hugely popular Flanimals books - and another 10 artists. They are: Jonas Bergstrand, Tom Jennings, Mick Brownfield, Mick Marston, Martin Haake, Dave Needham, Nishant Choski, Ray Smith, Andrew Bannecker and Tristan Eaton.

As if that wasn't enough, we also have plenty to keep the kids, or even very big grown up kids, occupied. The guys behind Moshi Monsters have created a drawing Den, in which you can create your own monsters and add them to the ever expanding wall of fame. Also, we have created a Monster Hunt, with a prize at the end for everyone who completes it!

Monsters Inked is open until May 24TH
Weekdays 10-6

Intro

Hello! Welcome to the new blog for Idea Generation Gallery. Blogger seems the way forward so this is our beginning.
For those of you who haven't visited us before, and maybe those of you who have, you may be interested to know a little about us. Idea Generation is a highly successful arts and cultural PR firm, with clients including the inaugural Frieze Art Fair, the Big Chill Festival, the Clothes Show Live and the Vauxhall Collective.
A year ago, following our move to a new RIBA award winning office in the heart of Shoreditch, our very own gallery opened within the offices. We aim to welcome all to the gallery. Those seasoned gallery trekkers, those who work within the arts and media and most of all, those who are curious and would not normally visit an exhibition!

Previous exhibitions include:
'Bearing Witness: Five Years of Reporting War in Iraq'
'Two Days in the Life: The Beatles' - Photographs by Tom Murray and Michael Ward
'The Sixties' - Robert Altman
'Tony Gill: New Work' - As part of the Concrete and Glass art and music festival
'Root Ginger' - A photographic study of red hair by Jenny Wicks

Our current exhibition, 'Monsters Inked: Inside the Minds of the Gods of Monsters' is proving hugely popular ---see next blog!
