We’re looking forward to taking a trip across the road to PLY tomorrow night for the launch of internationally renowned illustrator Will Broome’s first solo exhibition in Manchester. ‘Will Broome: A Retrospective’ showcases twenty of his finest large scale paper stencil works and colourful illustrations, offering an eclectic mix of the artist’s signature wide eyed characters.
Will Broome is a British illustrator and Central St Martin’s graduate who creates work out of his love for drawing and the simple art of mark making. He is well-known for high profile collaborations and work with the fashion elite including Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Hugo Boss. Whilst his illustrations have featured on designer catwalks and campaigns for Topshop, Harvey Nichols and Wedgewood.
‘Will Broome: A Retrospective’ launches this Wednesday from 6-8pm and officially launches PLY’s 2015 art programme. To mark the occasion PLY and its official arts partner Absolut, have created a cocktail for the event called the Broometown Swizzle that features Absolut Mandarin, Raspberries, blackberries, lemon and grapefruit soda.
