Shaun Tan is coming to London! Wednesday 1 June 2016

Shaun Tan's 'A Surrealist Vision' exhibition launched on 11 May with a very successful Private View which was well attended by fans of the prolific illustrator and film-maker.

You can meet the genius himself, as he is coming to London and will be in attendance at the IllustrationCupboard Gallery on 1st June from 4-7pm for a book signing event.

It is set to be a popular event so early arrival is recommended.  Please note that only books sold in the gallery will be able to be signed.

Our latest Shaun Tan exhibition 'A Surrealist Vision' features a combination of pastel and pencil drawings along with an array of sculptures for purchase.  See the Shaun Tan exhibition page of the website for more details.

The sculptures are a beautiful collection, with witty titles and imagery, such as The Devil and his Sooty Brother:

The Devil and his Sooty Brother


This sculptures all have a recognisable element to them, but are surreal, dreamlike forms which emerge from much artistic exploration and experimentation.  Tan has also employed a number of techniques and glazes in the creation of these miniature marvels, which help to animate them within the imagination.

Alongside Tan's sculptures and drawings we also have a selection of his books available to purchase, including the yet-to-be-released copy of The Singing Bones due to be published in the UK in September 2016, which can be ordered in hardback or as a limited gift box edition with exclusive signed and numbered print.

Back by popular demand, we have also produced a catalogue featuring 43 pages of stunning images from the exhibition, which include a brief commentary from Tan, available to purchase online, in the gallery and over the telephone for £20.
