END OF A CENTURY collects the visually incendiary, socially charged, satirically acute artwork of the late John Matthew Charrosin Wrake, who traded as Run. Specifically, his illustrations for the album review pages of weekly music bible the NME. These regular commissions collectively describe the shifting cultural, political and artistic trends of the 1990s. Together, they form an exhilarating visual guide to a musical decade remembered for its heady mix of guitar-driven grunge and Britpop, gangsta rappers and manufactured popstars. From U2, Blur and the Wu-Tang Clan to Nirvana, Kylie Minogue and PJ Harvey, these striking images mutate from monochrome, fanzinestyle cut-out Xerox collages to more sophisticated, full-colour computer-generated fantasias. What unites them is Run’s unique wit and invention, borne out of a deep love of music and the multimedia world around him. From the perspective of the next century, they seem brighter still.
