Adam Dant appointed as Election Artist


The House of Commons has selected artist Adam Dant as the nation’s official Election Artist, commissioned by the Speaker’s Advisory Committee on Works of Art to document the processes and outcomes of the 2015 General Election.

He will travel around the United Kingdom observing electioneering in the run up to polling day and some of his initial sketches will be shared on parliamentary social media channels during the election period. His final, completed work will join the Parliamentary Art Collection later in 2015.

Adam Dant is known for his monumental narrative ink drawings which approach British culture, politics and ideology with a rich vein of satire in the tradition of Rowlandson and Hogarth.
