England - London - Cartoonist Glen Baxter portrait.
Glen Baxter, nicknamed "Colonel Baxter," is an English cartoonist, noted for his surrealist, absurdist drawings. He is seen in a portrait situation before the opening of an exhibition of his work at the the Eagle in Clerkenwell, London. Born in Leeds in 1944, Baxter was trained at the Leeds College of Art. His images, and their corresponding captions, fuse art and language inspired by pulp fiction and adventure comics with intellectual jokes and references. Baxter's art has been collected in numerous books, and his work has appeared in The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and The Independent on Sunday. His simple line-drawings often feature cowboys, gangsters, explorers, and schoolchildren, who utter incongruous intellectual statements regarding art and philosophy.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
