Posters, People & Places: An Exhibition by Ag Cain

1 – 30 September

Courtyard Gallery

Ag Cain lives and works near Devil’s Bridge in Mid Wales and is a prolific painter, lettering artist and illustrator.
He worked for many years as a freelance artist in the British Film & TV industry working on set and prop decoration.

“I’ve always had a love for pre-war posters & enamel signs, and after many years as a lettering artist & illustrator in the Film industry, I am now producing my own range of ‘poster style’ paintings.”
“My paintings are an affectionate modern-retro take on the advertising of yesteryear, when the claims and promises made by advertisers reigned supreme and unchallenged over such trivial matters as accuracy, reality, or political correctness… not to mention Health & Safety!”

“These are my own original designs, hand painted & hand lettered, often with a wisp of humour, and of course… all in the best possible taste… I enjoy what I do!”
