Oliver Jeffers and Illustrationcupboard Gallery are delighted to present an exhibition of original artwork celebrating 10 years of Lost and Found (HarperCollins, 2005). As one of the leading contemporary illustrators working today, Oliver Jeffers needs little introduction and his best selling picture books have become a world wide sensation. Lost and Foundhas won over fifty awards including the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize Gold Award, 2006, and as the second book in its series it has enchanted millions as well as being turned into a BAFTA Award winning short animated film.
This month long exhibition will show a selection of the superb published Lost and Found artwork, with a further seven works, especially created for this event, offered for purchase. Based on the original books, these full colour paintings and line drawings provide the collector with a rare opportunity to acquire original artwork, a majority of which Oliver now produces digitally.
We also present the Lost and Found Anniversary Silkscreen, this short-run edition created by Oliver and hand-printed by Coriander Press is unique to the gallery and limited to only 99, each of which is signed and numbered by the artist. Signed books will also be available to purchase at the gallery and our online bookshop.
