The English artist's first photography show in Spain will open on 13 November 2009.

The English cult comic artist and illustrator Dave McKean is readying an exhibition of his most recent photographic work for the art gallery Estudio Artizar in the city of La Laguna, Tenerife. The show is part of the tenth edition of the photography festival Fotonoviembre, and it will feature both his new creations and a broad selection of his most well-known photographs. Faces, mysterious in their attitudes and their expressions, will enjoy pride of place. Estudio ARTIZAR ( HYPERLINK "http://www.artizar.es/"www.artizar.es) will thus be the first Spanish gallery to organise a show for the British artist.

Even though he has mastered digital technology, McKean's initial work as a photographer relied mainly on traditional techniques. His first works consisted of collages and sculptures, which he would photograph and then continue to elaborate. The arrival of new design programs greatly expanded his creative freedom, enabling him to work without using a sculpture or collage. He achieved international renown with a series of covers for The Sandman, an epic comic book series by Neil Gaiman. The two are close friends and continue to work together on a regular basis.

He has since seen his debut as a film director with The MirrorMask (2005), in addition to the shorts N[eon], The week before, Shakespeare's Sonnet, Reason and Me and my Big Idea, apart from working on the artistic staff of sagas like Harry Potter and several films by Tim Burton.

He is, in short, one of the most complete artists in the world of design, illustration and photography, and this is a unique opportunity to see his work in person.

The show will open on Friday, 13 November in the art gallery Estudio ARTIZAR (C/San Agustín 63, La Laguna, Tenerife) and it is sponsored by Canarias Cultura en Red.

Dave McKean and Brigitte Evill
12 September - 11 October
For the past 20 years, the town and surrounding landscape of Rye has crept into the backgrounds of Dave McKean's photographs, films, stories, drawings and paintings. For this show, the atmosphere of Rye is brought to the front of his extraordinary work.
Brigitte Evill expresses in her sculpture that sense of extended moment, suspensions in time, things poised in the seeming contradiction of expressing fleeting moments in hard resistant bronze or steel.
