Illustrator Rian Hughes has designed the cover for Chinese design magazine Xfuns’ September issue. This work, (alternative cover pictured) and other work including a recent illustration for a Japanese interiors magazine, will also be part of his first solo exhibition in ten years. The exhibition – at Coningsby Gallery, London W1 – will also encompass ’25 to 30 experimental pieces of non-commissioned work,’ says Hughes. It takes place from 22 September to 4 October.
