Call Me Honey | Nowness

Tank Girl co-creator Jamie Hewlett’s homage to sexploitation cinema

For his first-ever solo exhibition, graphic artist Jamie Hewlett explores a range of disparate subjects, from ‘tarotica’—a titillating reinterpretation of the tarot’s Major Arcana—to photorealist illustrations of a bucolic French landscape. Known for creating punkish comic book Tank Girl and the characters behind Damon Albarn-fronted ‘virtual’ band Gorillaz, here Hewlett pays homage to B-movies from the 1960s and 1970s that revelled in gratuitous sex and violence, by introducing his fictional pin-up Honey.
