June Demo

The next Friday evening demonstration will be held on 14th June in Market Hill Rooms from 8.00 to 10.00pm when Jim Anderson will be demonstrating ‘Surreal and Satirical in Oil Paint’.

Jim Anderson is a multi-media artist who divides his time and energies between printmaking, mosaic-making, painting, teaching, and writing. A member of The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers since 1996,  his work is steeped in the surreal and the satirical. He exhibits internationally, and his prints have been awarded a number of prizes in major national exhibitions.

​In 1997 he was a co-founder – along with Michael Sims and Christian Pattison – of The Illustrated Ape magazine; and in 2000 his book Handmade Prints – co-authored with artist Anne Desmet – appeared, and has remained in print ever since. 

He is a passionate believer in the possibilities of public art and has supervised and undertaken the production of over thirty public mosaic projects. He is proud to have produced a series of substantial mosaic murals for Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge and an ambitious public art project in various hospitals in Kenya.

In July 2020 Jim was the winner in an episode of the BBC’s TV show Home Is Where The Art Is.

His prints and paintings can be seen at The Bankside Gallery and For Art’s Sake Gallery (both in London), as well as in various art fairs and shows around the UK and abroad. His public mosaics can be found in locations around London and Cambridge, and in unexpected places in Spain, Greece, Kenya, and the USA.

Examples of Jim’s work can be seen on his website.
