“Ralph is an icon, his topical, political renderings iconic, his mad jargon a paragon of artistic brilliance. And through the illustrated musings of his life and times, Ralph’s bird will perpetually soar in the minds of those that follow, carrying the torch he once collected from all the dissidents that spewed their creative venom before him. Here is a man and artist of superior caliber.”
– Johnny Depp on Ralph Steadman
To celebrate the genius and multifarious career of Ralph Steadman (and his 77th birthday!), the London Cartoon Museum is mounting a retrospective of his work over the last 50 years.
STEADman @ 77 will feature over 100 original artworks, including the original art for our Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA.
The exhibition, sponsored by Flying Dog, is accompanied by a 160-page catalogue of his works with contributions by Johnny Depp, Will Self, and Guardian cartoonist Martin Rowson, along with a foreword written by our CEO Jim Caruso.
