Young Canadian illustrator Marcel Dzama holds his first UK exhibition later this month, featuring cartoonish creatures inspired by the Renaissance grotesques of Dante’s Inferno. Darkly humorous images of human figures, lions and dragons display influences as diverse as Werner Herzog’s 1979 film Nosferatu, Goldilocks and the Three Bears and the artists Martin Kippenberger and Raymond Pettibon. Born in Winnipeg, where he lives and works, Dzama has also designed the exhibition catalogue. Drawings for Dante is at the Timothy Taylor Gallery, Bruton Place London W1, from 31 October-13 December.
