An Evening with Wolfe von Lenkiewicz and Richard Dyer

Waterstones, 203/206 Piccadilly
London, W1J 9HD

Thursday 21st January 19:00

Waterstones Piccadilly is delighted to announce the launch of a major new monograph on one of Britain’s most dynamic artists, Wolfe von Lenkiewicz. Lenkiewicz’s striking paintings and drawings mine the hallowed halls of art history and popular culture in search of visual languages, imagery, themes and motifs that he can appropriate, adapt, use and abuse, bringing together different movements, genres, periods and styles in dialogues that are surprising, innovative, challenging and sometimes provocative. Published by Anomie with an introduction by distinguished art critic Edward Lucie-Smith, the book includes a major new essay by writer Richard Dyer with whom Wolfe will be in conversation this evening.
