Gareth Jones Digital Art Exhibition at York Hospital

A new exhibition at York Hospital sees Colin the Rat running along the main corridor (not literally!). You can see him between J5-6 until September 2021.

‘The Totally Brilliant Self-Isolated Adventures of Colin the Rat’ is an online comic strip that emerged during the first lockdown. Created by York artist Gareth Jones, it follows the day to day adventures of Colin – a well-intentioned thirty something rat who’s trying his best to make sense of the crazy world around him. 

Gareth Jones has a background in digital media. His work takes on different forms, including digital images, animation, video and comic illustrations. The main aim of his work is to spread a bit of joy through the use of bright colours, and comedic themes.
