Break-a-Lead brings you the latest and greatest from Bristol, the heart of British illustration. This years graduate exhibition from UWE Bristol Illustration students encompasses a wide variety of styles and approaches, embracing both traditional and contemporary practices. All artists work starts from the humble beginnings of a lead pencil, but quickly grows into new, inspiring and diverse avenues. Break-a-Lead demonstrates this, presenting a collective of driven, exciting and passionate artists united in their enthusiasm and talent for their craft. We take pride in our diversity, but are unanimous in our ambition and expertise. We are bold, we are brave: we are Break-a-Lead. The UWE Illustration program is unique as it places equal emphasis on both technical training and personal style, nurturing each students individual approach to the subject. It has a long history of success and is highly regarded within the industry, with students frequently winning awards such as the MacMillan and Penguin/Puffin prizes. Students go on to work in all areas of the visual arts, from the animation industry to curatorship. UWE Illustration is proud to present its latest up and coming graduates, and invites you to sample Bristols brightest and boldest artistic delights this July at the Gallery in Redchurch Street.
