CARTOONIST ON CAMPUS

 

A cartoonist who is a regular favourite in several national newspapers will make a return visit to the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside in April to give a free lecture on the art movement which followed the Mexican Revolution.

 

Tim Sanders will visit the Lincoln campus on Wednesday, 5th April to give an in-depth talk entitled ‘The Mexican Muralists’ explaining the new wave of artistic expression which followed the revolution 1910-1917.

 

A freelance cartoonist, Tim has had his drawings printed in national newspapers including the Independent, the Guardian and the Observer.

 

Post-revolution, Mexico was awash with social change and art played a major part in the reflection of these changes. Striking murals depicting the new movement were produced around the country as a way of capturing both the forgotten past and the unknown future.

 

The visit is being organised by Spanish lecturer Andy Daglish, who studied for his degree alongside Tim and remained friends with him after graduating. Like Andy, Tim did a degree in Spanish, and he spent a year in Mexico as part of his studies.

 

Tim will discuss the work and ideas behind the Mexican Muralists movement at the Co-op Lecture Theatre on the Lincoln campus from 7.30pm. For more details contact Andy Daglish on 01522 886344.
