Signs that you’ve made it: 1. You have a book of your work out. 2. The text for said book is written by Creative Review editor Patrick Burgoyne. 3. You have an accompanying exhibition of your work at super-cool east London gallery KK Outlet. 4. The press release for said show includes a quote from the people’s philosopher Alain de Botton.
Antony Burrill scores a perfect four out of four which is not surprise really as he’s one of the foremost graphic artists working today. Ok maybe the Alain de Botton thing is a surprise but here’s what he says about Anthony: “Burrill is a great designer because he makes you notice and appreciate truths that would otherwise remain dead and inert. His work has such resonance because it’s so true: we should all work hard and be nice.”
His work has now become so iconic (and aped by so many lesser talents) that it’s sometimes easy to forget just how important a part of the creative landscape Anthony actually is. The book not only presents his posters for intimate appreciation, it also includes comments from key contributors which help build up the image of a master at work.Anthony Burrill: I Like It. What Is It? runs until November 30.
