Catalogue Note

Luke Best is an award-winning illustrator who works both on his own projects and as a founding member of Peepshow Collective, a London-based animation and illustration studio. In 2015 he won an Emmy Award for his work on the PBS television series How We Got to Now. Best experiments with abstract compositions, exploring line quality, shape, texture and colour and works in a range of mediums.

“I love Steinbeck’s writing. I wanted to depict the broken, disparate feel of the book. The mass migration that displaces people and the hope that binds them together”
