A Graphic War is an exciting series of sculpture pieces by contemporary artist Ian Kirkpatrick, who has looked at the different ways graphics influenced life both at home and on the front lines during the Great War. Originally from Canada, Ian, whose work has been exhibited across the UK and internationally, was heavily influenced by commercial wartime packaging design. Indeed, the sculptures are made from cardboard and installed from an initial “flat pack” state, allowing them to be collapsed and reassembled for an “instant” exhibition experience.
A Graphic War: Sculptures by Ian Kirkpatrick will be on display at The National Archives until the end of March 2017.
