Vaughan was included in a publication last year from Lewis Blackwell publishers, authored by Caroline Roberts, Graphic Design Visionaries. In it he was profiled as one of 75 designers from the last 100 years of graphic design. He has been exhibited from Tokyo to Paris to LA but this is the first specific Pixies exhibition.
The installation is based upon the Pixies’ Minotaur limited edition box set and incorporates a range of text, image, video and objects organised as a series of layered spaces to create an uncanny labyrinthine environment.
Independent South London craft brewery Orbit Beers has produced a limited edition pale ale for the show called Hey after a song on the Doolittle album. Vaughan designed the label.
