One of the greatest rock cartoonists of all time is back to indulge our senses.
Ray Lowry, the famous designer of the iconic album cover of 'London Calling' by The Clash, is about to hold an exhibition featuring brand new paintings alongside work going back over 40 years, at the See Gallery in Crawshawbooth from 12 September to 7 November.
Best known for the cartoons he contributed to New Musical Express and Punch magazine in the 1970s and 80s, the show will also focus on Ray's importance as a painter of urban landscapes.
The exhibition will also include a plethora of Ray's well-known cartoons, plus previously unseen oil paintings and fascinating glimpses into his notebooks as well as paintings and drawings from The Clash American tours.
Examples of Ray Lowry's work have previously been snapped up and admired by collectors and celebrities - included are the late great John Peel, Damien Hirst, Jon Squire, Patti Smith, Phill Jupitus, Don Letts and many more.
Many of the works are for sale, and will give art goers the opportunity to acquire an original piece of rock 'n' roll history.
