Cover it up… an illustration show by Dave Bain

March 17, 2009

In the gallery from 31st March – 25th April


An exhibition of book covers, designed and created by Bristol illustrator Dave Bain.  Selecting absolute classics and some downright good reads, Dave Bain has put pen to paper, brush to paint and pencil behind ear to produce a rather ripping collection of book covers.  This very personal interpretation of well-known stories is sure to bring delight and surprise in this rare solo show.


All artwork is for sale.


Dave Bain graduated from Falmouth College of Arts with a BA degree in Illustration (2006) and currently resides in Bristol.  He works in a number of ways, from a naive painting style to mixed media techniques.  His work is highly commended by the Macmillan Children’s Prize and as well as being selected for various illustration annuals, his pictures are also used as examples in the book, ‘Illustration – A Theoretical & Contextual Perspective’ written by Alan Male (AVA Academia – 2007).   Clients he has illustrated for include Nokia, the NSPCC, Shirted Ape, Advice To Sink In Slowly and Harcourt Press.
