Hang-Up Gallery is delighted to announce Apocalypse Boutique, a retrospective of rare prints and one-off pieces by British artist, Stanley Donwood.  The exhibition will showcase a fantastically varied series of rare screen-prints, linoprints, etchings and original canvases.  Apocalypse Boutique aims to highlight the artist’s unique style and endless diversity.  Amongst the collection will be the last remaining original canvas from the ‘Hail to the Thief’ series, known internationally as the inspiration behind Radiohead’s number one Grammy Award Winning album.  Stanley Donwood has been Radiohead’s in-house artist since he and Thom Yorke met at Exeter University. 


Stanley Donwood Stanley Donwood

Notoriously reclusive, Stanley Donwood himself doesn't pander to the disingenuous media trend for grandeur, and like many intelligent creatives operating in such a conceited sphere, cannot resist underselling himself. Stanley's art veers from propagandist graphics to introspective illustrations, but a consistent strength is its combination of deep personal and political emotions with modesty and humour; weighty subjects examined not entirely seriously but certainly respectfully. The powerful visual identity he's created for the band Radiohead is considered so in tune with Thom Yorke's music that the debate still rages as to whether he and Yorke are one and the same, despite the pair accepting their 2001 Grammy Award for best packaging (a limited edition of Amnesiac) together.
