Fenland illustrator to hold exhibition at Octavia View in Wisbech

ART by a Fenland illustrator and printmaker will go on display at an exhibition next month.

Benedict Mayer, from Wisbech, a recent graduate of Norwich University College of the Arts, specialises in linocut.

He says his inspirations are drawn from the world around him - from music and poetry to mythology and colloquial sayings.

Mr Mayer said: “The organic process through which I create my illustrations, and my deep understanding of the medium, heavily informs my imagery.”

The exhibition, titled Prints 2009-2011, is supported by Fenland art organisation Atelier East.

Karen Harvey, of Atelier East, said: “Benedict took part in our 2010 summer exhibition and we loved his work.

“We are delighted to be able to give him a solo exhibition and hope that lots of people will come along and enjoy his work.”
