Event description
BCU Type Talks: Patrick Thomas: Graphic artist

About this Event

Patrick Thomas will not give a ‘portfolio-talk’. He will not talk about poster design; he will not talk about identities; and he will most definitely not talk about branding. He will talk more about the future than the past. He will talk about authenticity, responsibility, his practice and his hopes and expectations for visual communication in the 21st century.

Thomas is a graphic artist, author and educator. He studied at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art before relocating to Barcelona in 1991. In 2005 he published Black & White, a compilation of his work for the International Press. In 2011 Laurence King Publishing, published his second book Protest Stencil Toolkit. A revised edition was released in April 2019.

In 2007 he set up his first press. Since then he has exhibited his limited-editions across five continents, where many are now held in private and public collections. In April 2018 he was interviewed on BBC Radio 4 Front Row about his public installation Breaking News. The project has since been realised in various European cities. He has given talks about his practice and held workshops worldwide. Between 2004–05 he was Graphic Research Fellow at Liverpool John Moores University and since October 2013 he is a professor of visual communication at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art. In May 2019 he released Open_collab, a free self-run project to encourage collaboration and experimentation.

Since 2011 he is based in Berlin. In 2019 he was invited for a residency at Villa Massimo, the German Academy in Rome.
