An exhibition of ten large portraits created specially by Quentin to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the gallery at Hastings Contemporary.  Quentin commented:

“Since discovering the rewarding possibilities of drawing with the humble biro, I have spent the past few months creating a series of imaginary portraits using a range of techniques from academic shading to cross hatching. As the first Artist Patron of Hastings Contemporary, I thought it was only right that I took my biro in hand to specially create these ten drawings to celebrate ten wonderful years of this extraordinary gallery.”

Visitors to the gallery will be encouraged to take up a biro for themselves and create their own works of art.  Join in with the hashtag: #LetsCreateWithQuentinBlake
