Drawings and designs by the surrealist artist, Gerald Scarfe are on display at the Barbican at the moment.
Focusing largely on The Wall, the iconic Pink Floyd album, the display of early drawings also shows off some of the design concepts and photos from the stadium shows and later film.
Away from pop music, the display also shows off his designs for Opera, such as Sir Peter Hall’s The Magic Flute, as well as English National Opera’s Orpheus in the Underworld and designs for English National Ballet’s The Nutcracker.
A wall of smaller prints diverts from music towards politics, with a number of his more famous Sunday Times cartoons.
As an exhibition, it is likely to mostly appeal to people with a strong interest in The Wall, as much of it is devoted to the visuals of that album, but it does show off the versatility of the artist across a number of different commissions.
The exhibition closes soon though — on 31st October. It’s open Mon-Sat
