Clive Hicks-Jenkins

Welsh artist Clive Hicks-Jenkins’ love of toy theatres has proved a lifelong inspiration for his successful creative career, which has also encompassed choreography, puppetry and theatre design.

Described by Simon Callow as ‘one of the most individual and complete artists of our time’, Clive has designed a toy theatre for Pollocks, thereby ticking off one of his life ambitions. His Pollock’s design forms part of his Hansel & Gretel opus which includes an illustrated darker version of the story for St Judes as well as a theatre production with words by Simon Armitage.
