Ron King exhibition promotional image, at Skippings Gallery Great Yarmouth

RON KING

2016’s edition of FlipSide Festival, in partnership with Norfolk Contemporary Art Society, East Anglia Art Fund and Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust, presented an exhibition of Ron King’s work at Skippings Gallery, Great Yarmouth.

Born in São Paulo, Brazil in 1932, Ron still has a strong attachment to the country and its culture. At the age of 12 he became fascinated with the macabre photograph that he saw in a book of his father’s of the decapitated heads of the infamous bandit leader Lampião and his notorious band. It’s this image that was the basis for the exhibition at the gallery in May 2016.
