Blue eyed son Book Launch

Manky Chops is proud to present BLUE EYED SON is truly spectacular book of portraits of Kurt Cobain compiled by Benedict Quilter of Wellington.

The "Blue Eyed Son" book has been over a year in the making, Benedict introduced himself to Manky Chops Gallery at the beginning of 2009 and told us of his plans to make a "fanzine" made up of images of Kurt Cobain done by various artists...however a year later, this fanzine has become a book, holding amazing works by over 40 different artists. Some are famous, some are emerging, some just love to draw....but in this book everyone is the same, a Kurt fan.

"Artists understand Kurt, in each pencil, pen or brush stroke we get one persons insight into Kurts' image and mind, no two are the same but the people that did these images are all Kurt fans on one level or another." - Benedict Quilter

When : Opening reception Monday 5th April 6pm
Show runs until Tuesday 13th of April.
Where : Manky Chops Gallery, level one 166a Cuba Street, WGTN
