Cold War Steve at The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge, 17 January–28 February 2019, free entry - Visit now
After a three month hit run at The Social in London, Cold War Steve at Hebden Bridge Trades Club features a debut collection of work by the artist who’s been christened the ‘Brexit Bruegel’. It documents many of the major events that have shaped the modern world in a series of deeply kaleidoscopic images.
The collection presents an alternate history – a timeline is haunted by the stalking Zelig-like figure of iconic TV hardman Phil Mitchell. As Phil traverses these hellscapes, a recurring cast of characters builds around him – the collective presence of household names such as Donald Trump, Alan Brazil, Danny Dyer and Fray Bentos reflect the ebb and flow of our daily news cycle.
