THE ART OF POLITICAL SATIRE:STEVE BELL

Festivals |
19th October 2013

Cartoons have long been part of the political scene since artists like William Hogarth and James Gillray used the medium to expose the failings of politicians in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. 

Steve Bell is one of the country’s leading modern day political cartoonists.  He gave us John Major wearing his underpants over his trousers and Tony Blair with a psychotic glint in one of his eyes. He has won numerous awards including Cartoonist of the Year in 2005 and 2007 and the Cartoon Arts Trust Award eight times.

Dr Andrew Miles will be talking to Steve about the art of creating political cartoons, their place in political debate and some of the highlights of his own career as a political cartoonist.
