Illustrator and artist Paul Slater has been represented by the Central Illustration Agency since its inception back in 1983. He’s just about to launch an exhibition at private members club The Union on Greek Street in Soho. The exhibition, which opens tomorrow, July 7, runs until October 6 and is viewable by appointment only. However, Ben at CIA took a selection of photos for us to share with you:
For those unfamiliar with Slater’s work, he graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1978 and since then has produced work for a host of journals and clients that include Volkswagen, British Airways and Shell. Recent projects include a mosaic for El Camion restaurant in Soho, though more people might be familiar with the painted mural at The Cow pub in Notting Hill commissioned in 1995. Even more people are likely to have seen his recent paintings of Anchor cows which appeared in CHI’s campaign which featured here on the blog and also in this year’s CR Annual.
