Synopsis: Run Wrake's career as an animator and graphic designer was distinguished by an engagement with music, from the videos he produced for the Gang of Four and Howie B. to visuals he created for the live shows of U2 and the Rolling Stones. Between 1988 and 2000, he illustrated album reviews for the NME, turning his talent to documenting one of the most exciting periods in pop music history. Drawing on his influences - early hand-drawn animation, Dada, Pop Art and punk graphics - Run Wrake developed a unique, bold and contemporary style to capture a vibrant musical culture with a perceptiveness and wit that was all his own. The illustrations collected here are a testament to the versatility of Run Wrake's art: End of a Century pictures musicians, good and bad, from the heady days of the nineties, from guitar-driven grunge and Britpop acts to ageing folk musicians and manufactured pop stars.

About the Author: Run Wrake was born John Wrake, in Yemen in 1965 - his father was a chaplain in the British Army - and brought up in Sussex. At a school cricket game, with Wrake rooted to the spot at the wicket, his schoolmates shouted "run, run", and the nickname stuck. Wrake studied graphic design at the Chelsea College of Art and later went on to the Royal College of Art, where his contemporaries included Karen Kelly, Stuart Hilton, Philip Hunt and Sarah Kennedy. He went on to become one of the most important graphic designers, illustrators and animators of his generation. Throughout his career, he worked extensively with U2, The Rolling Stones and many other bands (collaborating with Roy Lichtenstein, among others). After being diagnosed with cancer in November 2011, Run Wrake died in October 2012, aged 48.
