Award-winning reportage artist George Butler is an unexpected sight with his pen in one hand and pot of ink and paper in the other, drawing on the front lines of conflict whilst bombs are often falling nearby around and people are hurrying in the other direction.
A new book DRAWN ACROSS BODERS published in February 2021 by Walker Studio captures his extraordinary and unique talent.
DRAWN ACROSS BORDERS is a record of human migration, one of the most pressing and misunderstood issues of our time. In a collection spanning 10 years of reporting on crises in the Middle East, Europe and Africa, award-winning artist George Butler introduces the humans behind the headlines, telling their stories in interviews and striking artwork made in war zones, refugee camps and on the move. In these pages we meet seeking safety, work or new opportunities, and appreciate human resilience and the deeply human impulse to move towards a better future.
