Jake and Dinos Chapman's work comes to Swindon

Jake and Dinos Chapman: My Giant Colouring Book exhibition opened in Swindon on Saturday 30 May at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery.

A series of etchings with dark undercurrents, montrous creatures, and fantastic landscapes, based loosely on join-the-dots drawings from children's picture books. The 21 etchings, published by the Paragon Press, London in 2004, offer a fascinating insight into the imaginations of two of Britain's most inventive and subversive artists.

The exhibition runs from Saturday 30 May to Saturday 27 June and admission is free.
This is a Hayward Touring exhibition, from Southbank Centre, London, on behalf of Arts Council, England.

Jake and Dinos Chapman's work is being shown alongside pictures from the Swindon Collection of Modern Art including works by Maggi Hambling, Timothy Hyman, Lucian Freud, Eileen Cooper, Paul Gough, William Roberts, Louis le Brocquy and more.
