London Calling Exhibition
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the 'London Calling' album, the life of Ray Lowry and the launch of the Ray Lowry Foundation, there will be a very unique art exhibition staged in the Ideas Generation Gallery in Brick lane, London. Starting on the 17th June for 4 weeks.
The artist Ray Lowry who died in October 2008 last year designed the 'London Calling' album sleeve.
Ray Lowry's stylish and witty illustrations, satirical drawings and strips lead him to become Britain's leading rock'n'roll cartoonist.
There will be a selection of his work on display at the exhibition.
Thirty artists have been invited to produce an album-sized piece of art in their own developed style based on their interpretation of 'London Calling'. The artists have been encouraged to look at how The Clash and the Punk movement influenced them, their art and society.
The collection will then move toEurope, America, and the Far East and then returns to London where the work will be auctioned, with all proceeds going to Ray Lowry Foundation.
