Over the course of the coronavirus pandemic, Brighton Dome employee Graham Cameron produced a series of striking illustrations detailing his experience of lockdown, the impact of Covid-19 on the arts and his time furloughed from work.
Cameron’s artwork, which includes illustrations of much-loved Brighton landmarks such as the Palace Pier, Royal Pavilion and a stunning drawing of Brighton Dome, will go on display in the venue’s Founders Room from 26 to 31 October. Alongside familiar scenes of the city and popular arts and entertainment venues, Cameron uses colourful motifs such as skulls, doll-like characters and animals to describe his feelings about lockdown, isolation and the escape provided by the natural world.
90% of the originals will be up for sale via an online auction with a 10% donation to Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, which is a registered charity. There will also be copies of Cameron's book available to buy. The Art of G: Illustrating My Way Through a Pandemic features a diary entry alongside each piece of artwork.
