Event description

Description

The University of Lincoln is delighted to welcome renowned textual artist and designer, Stephen Raw, who is known for his work designing coins for the Royal Mint.

Stephen’s career has spanned over four decades, taking him from London to Papua New Guinea, across Europe and the United States. His work is inspired by his passion for language and the visual representation of letters, which has led to collaborations with the former Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy as well as commissions for the British Academy and the Royal Mint.

Some of Stephen’s most notable work includes a £2 coin to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the end of WWI as well as a collectable 50 pence piece depicting Sherlock Holmes to mark the 160th anniversary of author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s birth. In the 1990’s he was commissioned by publisher Harper Collins to reproduce maps from JRR Tolkien’s fantasy series The Lord of the Rings. The reproductions were created under the instruction of Tolkien’s son Christopher, who originally drew the maps of Middle Earth.

Stephen, who is currently the artist in residence at Manchester Cathedral, will offer insights into his career as well as taking part in a question and answer session.
