The Entity I Could Not Fathom

In 2022 AI art was unleashed into society and now threatens to eliminate the need for human creativity. This is an exhibition of art created by Stephen Hanson, a 40 year veteran in the illustration and animation industry, alongside the launch of his book ‘The Entity I Could Not Fathom’, a personal reaction and exploration into AI art and his philosophy on the importance of preserving natural human creativity for future generations.

Works include visual development art for films including Despicable Me, Arthur Christmas and Corpse Bride, as well as sketchbook art and personal work.

Join us 6-9pm on Friday June 7th for the opening night, where there will be drinks and art and books galore!
