Opening tomorrow at The Book Club in London is The Folding Knife, an exhibition of new works by French illustrator McBess…
The Folding Knife will include previously unseen canvas work, prints and 3D objects by McBess (aka Matthieu Bessudo). All are executed in his distinctive black-and-white style. A selection of the works in the exhibition are shown here.
Girls and Boys
As part of the exhibition, McBess has also invited artists and close friends who have inspired him to make new works for display. In keeping with McBess’s style though, these are all created in black-and-white. Artists taking part include Éditions Copains (Ugo Gattoni and Guilaume Singelin), KOA, Rotopol and Nicolas Tual.
The Folding Knife is on show at The Book Club until September 18. More info is at wearetbc.com.
