T.L.L by Graham Carrick

Myself and Lucy Williams have been huge comic and movie fans for longer than we care to remember and this exhibition addresses these passions. The first shot of this double-barrelled exhibition concentrates on our love of comics. We have brought together artists working within London’s contemporary art scene to offer up their interpretations of beloved Superheroes and Villains. Beware these will be little like anything you have seen before.

The second discharge from our smoking gun portrays artists’ interpretations of movie posters from throughout cinema history. Again these will be original takes on iconic images and of interest to movie buffs.

Fitzrovia Noir’s intentions with this art outing is to give thanks to all the influences that have shaped our own understanding of the art world and acted in part as inspiration for the direction our own careers have taken. I was inspired and educated in art skills by the likes of 2000AD and Warrior, and studied Bill Sienkiewicz and Kevin O’Neil as the great masters that they are. Without these influences from an early age I doubt I would have find myself in the position I am today.

With this show, we salute the importance of these artists and their work -  the comic creators, graphic artists and movie makers that have and continue to inspire and entertain us.

Thank you all

We love ya

Graham & Lucy
