Cold War Steve aka Christopher Spencer is an artist from Birmingham, England who specialises in surreal, satirical and hilarious collages originally made on his phone and iPad. Since 2016 Cold War Steve’s Twitter account with almost daily posts has been a lifeline to many in these dark times with his following increasing by the day. Three solo exhibitions, two books with Thames & Hudson, commissions for the National Galleries of Scotland and the Whitworth in Manchester, a giant billboard installation at Glastonbury Festival and an international TIME magazine cover have all followed in the last year.
Holgate Gallery was delighted to exhibit 'You, me and Cold War Steve - the International Exhibition of the People' - an acerbic take on politics delivered through collaged political satire. Brexit never looked so good.
Here's a few images from the exhibition, which is now finished, but watch this space for more Cold War Steve in the future.
