We are delighted to announce that Bristol’s Architecture Centre will be hosting an exhibition of drawings by Garth England from 31 May to 10 September.
Garth England’s remarkable work was discovered during the research process for one of our Future Perfect commissions – a theatre curtain by artist Nils Norman which draws on the local history of Hengrove.
Garth had spent almost all of his seventy-nine years living in neighbourhoods in south Bristol: Knowle West, Hengrove, Totterdown and Bedminster. The jobs he held throughout his life - paperboy, telegram boy, milkman and railway man - gave him a deep understanding of the rhythm, architecture and people of this part of Bristol.
His exquisitely detailed drawings were published in a book produced by Future Perfect, Murdered with Straight Lines, and will on show for the very first time.More news
