Move over Charles Darwin, this exhibition is leading a unique anthropological monster study – one step beyond for evolution.

The Monsters Inked show will explore the development of monster drawings from the deepest, darkest depths of an artist's imagination, on to the sketchpad and finishing on the gallery wall – in an incredible exhibition of more than 100 monster images.

From an astonishing new commission of Pete Fowler's surreal and psychedelic Monsterism Island to a world-first display of Rob Steen's visceral Flanimals. The exhibition will take an exclusive and remarkable look at the innerworkings of an artist's mind, to find out exactly where mind-boggling monster illustrations come from… revealing the story behind how & why they were created.

Monsters Inked will include:
• The world-first exhibition of 20 illustrations by Rob Steen from Ricky Gervais' much-loved Flanimals book. The show will look at translating illustrations through an artist's personality, from the draftsman board to the finished page of an international commercial smash-hit success.

• A dazzling 800 sq ft vinyl installation of Monsterism Island will prove just how far an artist can take the concept of defining monster art – in this case Pete Fowler, best known for his work for the Super Furry Animals.

• Artists including Thunderdog, Mick Brownfield and Ray Smith from the Central Illustration Agency are also showcasing the world's best illustration and creative talent at Monsters Inked. More than 30 illustrations will be on show from nine different illustrators exploring how monsters can be represented through a wide array of radical artistic styles.

• A unique Monsters Den and a thrilling Monster Hunt created by The Monsters Inked Children's Programme Partner – which will let the imagination of the gallery's younger visitors run wild.

Stripped bare from birth to page, this is monsters as you have never seen before... this is Monsters Inked.
