Renowned artist Bruce Michael Baillie will be exhibiting Miscellaneous Images at Matthew’s Coffee House in Cleckheaton this month. Bruce, who lives in Scholes, has worked in the design business for over 40 years and during that time his artwork has been used on everything from ceramic tiles to pub signs. He has also done cartoons, book illustration, advertising, publishing work, record sleeves, posters and leaflets.
Bruce said: “I’ve always been interested in the commercial art styles of yesteryear – old railway posters and the type of drawings found in boys’ annuals from the 1920s onwards. I suppose my style of work reflects that. I love working in gouache, pen and ink and pencil.”
The exhibition starts on February 24 and runs for six weeks. A meet the artist will be held at the coffee shop in Market Street on February 25 from 6pm-8pm.
