Celebrating 40 Years of Aardman - Exhibition and Book Signing

This year, to celebrate 40 years of this most iconic of film studios, the Illustration Cupboard Gallery is delighted to present a one-off exhibition celebrating four decades of Aardman’s animation production, design, creativity and cracking characters.

In this unique, milestone exhibition, an exciting array of original artwork from Aardman artists will be on show and available for purchase, including drawings and character studies of Wallace & Gromit by Nick Park and the inimitable Morph by Peter Lord. There will also be a specially produced sculpture of Morph to highlight the variety of original artwork on display.


On Wednesday 28th September there will be a special launch of the new book, The Art of Aardman, a unique anthology which takes the reader on an unforgettable tour through the Aardman archives. Copies of the book will be signed by Aardman’s co-founders Peter Lord and David Sproxton from 3:00pm – 5:00pm, followed by the opening night private view and press reception from 5.00pm – 8.00pm.

If you are unable to attend, you can pre-order a signed copy of the book by calling the gallery on +44 (207) 976 1727.
