George Butler x Bellerby & Co Globemakers

This is a globe of some of the world’s most significant migrations, in humans, animals and birds – a collaboration with Bellerby & Co Globemakers and George Butler.
 
George Butler is an award winning artist and illustrator specialising in travel and current affairs. His drawings, done in situ are in pen, ink and watercolour. In August 2012 George walked from Turkey across the border into Syria, where as guest of the rebel Free Syrian Army he drew the civil war damaged, small and empty town of Azaz. Over the last ten years his desire to record scenes in ink rather than with a camera has meant he has witnessed some extraordinary moments; refugee camps in Bekaa Valley, in the oil fields in Azerbaijan, in Gaza with Oxfam, in Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, in a neo-Nazi murder trial in Munich, on an oil rig in the north sea, down a Ghanian gold mine… the list goes on.
 
“It takes a while to get used to doing a drawing you can never see the whole of, buts that’s the idea – one point of view isn’t enough – especially when it comes to migration.”
 
Come and see it at Bankside Gallery, London – 20-25th November. Open Daily 11am-6pm.
