We are currently showing part of an ongoing series of prints by Peter Rapp which have been inspired by The Book of Imaginary Beings by Jorge Luis Borges.
Peter’s crisply executed, black and white linocuts are immediately engaging and darkly humorous; the prints being a playful retelling of the bestiary. In the footsteps of the great satirical artists such as William Hogarth, Peter Rapp, allows the humour of his work to expose perhaps the fears and uncertainties of our modern world.
Peter started making prints in 1999, learning printmaking at the Working Men’s College and Morley College in London, and subsequently as an active member of East London Printmakers.
Now based in Leicester, Peter is a member of Leicester Society of Artists and Leicester Print Workshop. He has exhibited nationally and internationally and his work is in many private and public collections including Leicester Museums and Galleries, Tate Library, The V&A and the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art.
