An unmissable art exhibition by John Lee Bird.  A painter and collagist who, utilising a very clear line and flat colour, creates large, colourful portraits of his friends. Look out for TV celebrities, musicians and other flamboyant people from stage to screen. See characters from The Mighty Boosh, musicians such as Jarvis Cocker, and a host of other club scene personalities, drag queens and fashionistas.

The works are thematically entitled ‘Before Encore’ as the portraits are taken from Bird’s photographs quickly grabbed before the subjects return to stage in advance of their final encore.
