'Above & Below' an exhibition by Rob Bailey


Above and Below an exhibition by Rob Bailey. Launch night: Thursday 27 February, 6pm Runs: Thursday 27 February to late August If three truly is the magic number then the next exhibition at Common is going to be something rather special. It's been four years since Rob Bailey's last show 'You', and six whole years since his first ever solo exhibition 'Hello World' and now Rob is back to complete the trilogy. Common are very proud to announce his new show 'Above and Below'. In the years since his previous show at Common, Rob Bailey has cemented his place in the illustration world and has joined the London agency 'Outline Artists' alongside illustration greats like Mr Bingo, Hvass and Hannibal. Rob has worked on projects for Google, Ford, The New York Times and the New Yorker to name but a few and has even won an award at Cannes Lions. But all work and no play make Rob a dull boy, so he is going back to where it all began. 'Above and Below' is a collection of new work from Rob Bailey. There will be original collages and limited edition prints for sale, but not satisfied with just covering Common's walls with his inimitable stylings he's 'BRANCHING' out this time. What does that involve, you cry? Bailey is keeping his cards close to his chest so you'll have to go and see it for yourself, but all the colourful and deceptively simplistic charm you've come to expect one of Manchester's favourite illustrators is guaranteed. 'Above and Below' opens on Thursday 27th February at 6pm at Common, 39-41 Edge Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 1HW
