Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. John Byrne (b.1940) grew up on the Ferguslie Park housing scheme in Paisley. He escaped work in a carpet factory to study at the Glasgow School of Art, and has since carved out a successful dual career as an artist and a writer. This is the first monograph to explore Byrne s remarkable artistic journey in both the visual and literary fields, and celebrates his contribution to contemporary Scottish cultural identity. John Byrne s biography reflects his diverse talents. He has designed theatre sets and record covers. His play The Slab Boys (1978) won him the Evening Standard s most promising playwright award. The immensely successful, six-time BAFTA award-winning television series, Tutti Frutti, appeared in 1987. All these achievements have developed alongside Byrne s artistic career, which took off in 1967 when he assumed the identity of Patrick for a solo show at the Portal Gallery, London. A prolific painter, illustrator and print-maker, Byrne today boasts a range of works held in prestigious public collections such as The National Gallery of Art, Edinburgh. Including a valuable catalogue of Byrne s editioned prints, Robert Hewison s highly readable text provides a chronological, critical account of the work and life of the artist. The relevance of Byrne s art and writings to the cultural history of the UK since 1940 is also examined, so making this book essential reading for art and cultural historians and general readers alike.
