This lavishly illustrated career survey of the work of Ashley Bickerton provides unprecedented insight into the artist’s life and art.
This book, designed by Stefan Sagmeister in close collaboration with the artist, is a striking work of art in its own right, featuring a fold-out poster, die-cut pages, and more than 300 colour illustrations.
Throughout this eclectic monograph, the artist’s own commentary is interwoven with text from additional contributors, including essays by fellow artist Jake Chapman, novelist Nick McDonell, art historian Abigail Solomon-Godeau, curator Dominic Molon, and the artist’s father, the noted linguist-anthropologist Derek Bickerton. Also included is an interview with Bickerton conducted by Hans Ulrich Obrist, co-director of London’s Serpentine Gallery, presented in the form of a comic novel with illustrations by graphic artist Ignacio Noé.
