A couple of weeks ago, I had a little staycation in Manchester, and went to an amazing retrospective exhibition of the work of Paul Peter Piech at the People’s History Museum. It was incredibly inspiring, included in the display were politically charged lino prints, book covers and posters.
I love the urgency and sheer volume of his work. The prints he made were innovative, bold and powerful. He never stopped making and making, frenetically producing his prints. It made me want to put some Sun Ra on and carve lino blocks.
The exhibition runs til the 12th of February, and I urge you to go and see it.
