Have just been introduced to the work of Nick Rhodes, http://www.switchopen.com/ who is an illustrator and poster designer from Manchester. Nick's work has been on display at Urbis as part of a two day exhibition entitled "Firehouse- UK poster Explosion Tour 2008" which also featured work by the legendary American poster designers and silkscreen stars Ron Donovan & Chuck Sperry. http://www.firehouseposters.com/ All three of them had produced stunning handmade posters, for bands, nights etc.
The bad news is that you've missed it, as today was the last day at Urbis. The good news though is that you can see and buy Nick's work here in Manchester at The Richard Goodall Gallery here: http://www.richardgoodallgallery.com/rggstore/nick-rhodes-m-589.html?osCsid=f2ad2bc9ccd68d83ce159daed6d59c1f and Ron Donovan & Chuck Sperry are showing their work around the UK, dates below.
