Woodcuts by Roy Bizley
by Roy Bizley
Showing at LPW’s Exhibition Space
02 August – 15th October 2016
We are very fortunate to be able to show a collection of satirical posters by the late artist Roy Bizley, which recently became part of the collection at Leicester’s New Walk Museum and Art Gallery.
For this exhibition, Roy’s woodcuts are displayed alongside a new series of linocuts by LPW Artist Peter Rapp, entitled Famous Philatelic Errors .
We’re excited to bring together these works. Both artists create highly political and visually engaging work, telling stories and often depicting subjects as grotesque caricatures.
Also on display in the exhibition are two prints by Paul Peter Piech, kindly on loan to us from Leicester’s New Walk Museum and DeMontfort University.
