Fronts is a new series of profiles showcasing the talents of innovative, exciting artists from around the world. The series will aim to provide an introduction to the work of some of the best contemporary artists around, all in full colour and featuring exclusive interviews!
Issue One features the vibrant, colourful woodcuts of Roman Klonek, a Polish-born artist working out of Dusseldorf.
Mixing playful Eastern European cartoon stylings, German folklore and modern pop culture, Roman Klonek has produced a body of work that is instantly recognisable and truly unique. He has exhibited in the UK several times as well as in his adopted homeland of Germany and recently completed a one-man show at the Feinkunst Krueger in Hamburg.
Limited to 50 copies, Fronts Issue One features 10 full colour plates and an exclusive interview with the artist.
