“Rarely has the MOJO office been so galvanised than when Morgan Howell popped in to show us his Supersized Singles. The 3D quality is uncanny, just like an original single has been blown up with some science-fiction enlargement machine and plonked on your wall.”

Remember the thrill of buying a new single when discs were black not silver? Or the smell of opening an old record case full of 45’s?

In a moment of genius triggered by the call for entries to the RA Summer Exhibition, St Albans artist Morgan Howell FRSA rediscovered his formative years when music was everything and captured its essence in a series of ‘supersize’ singles painted in minute detail, even down to the tears and wrinkles of their paper sleeves.

This exhibition is a rare opportunity to see a collection of many of these classic works, some of which are available to purchase.

Limited edition prints and collectors’ cards at various sizes will also be available and Morgan will be signing these on Saturday 8 October between 2 and 5pm.
