Today: Drawing the election campaign

May 4th, 2015

Episode 333 of 1270 episodes

The artist Adam Dant was commissioned by the House of Commons to document the 2015 election campaign. He has been out on the campaign trail and at the manifesto launches, making sketches of the main political protagonists, and the public, and the interactions between the two. These sketches will in due course help him put together one large work – he is known for monumental narrative ink drawings – which will join the Parliamentary Art Collection later in 2015.
