John Lennon Exhibition. Complete Collection
at Daily Post & Echo Building
May 23 to June 2 2008
The exhibition will feature the Complete Collection of John Lennon’s artwork for the first time in their entirety in Liverpool.
Jonathan Poole, exhibition organiser, comments:
“It is very exciting to have the Complete Collection of Lennon’s work, and fitting that it should be showcased in his home city, during a year highlighting Liverpool’s cultural position in Europe. I began my career exhibiting works by John Lennon and, personally, I am a huge fan of his works. This exhibition gives people the chance to see a different side of John in terms of his artistry and also his unique personality.”
Although best known as a musician, art was also a huge part of John’s life and he attended the Liverpool School of Art from 1957-1960, before becoming part of one of the most famous pop bands of all time.
The collection features works by Lennon dating from 1968 until his untimely death in 1980 and features fifteen original drawings. This exhibition has been organised in conjunction with Yoko Ono’s company, Bag One and demonstrates the various styles used by John Lennon to express his imaginative artistic style.
