Generation Gallery

The go-to site for collectors of animation and film related art.

Generation Gallery is an art gallery based in Manchester, specialising in animation and film related art from Hollywood's major studios. This is the site where you'll find artwork featuring The Simpsons, Batman, Spiderman, Star Trek and Star Wars.

Founded in 2004, the gallery is now one of the leading independent commercial galleries in the UK, with art events and exhibitions that draw collectors from across the UK.


Find artwork from films made by 20th Century Fox, Aardman Animation (who can resist Wallace & Gromit?), Disney, Dreamworks, Lucasfilm and Warner Bros. Prints are delivered bagged with backboard and a certificate of authenticity, so that you know you're getting the real deal.


Generation Gallery exhibits the work of JJ Adams iconic images that are limited editions, titled and numbered in pencil by the artist. God Save The Queen, R2 D2 and Marilyn have each had the JJ Adams treatment. The artist's work is influenced by artists like Norman Rockwell, Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Sir Peter Blake.

Other artists showcased in this genre include Dave Merrell, Joe Petrucci with his Elvis inspired art, Louis Sidoli and Paul Oz.

You can also browse collections from the Godfather of British tattooing, Lou Molloy and actor/musician Goldie.


For those that like their art with a little more sugar and less spice, we recommend you head to the section devoted to contemporary art where you'll find the work of Kerry Darlington, amongst others. Darlington was inspired by a love of beautiful old picture books (Rackham, Dulac and Beardsley were favourites and later on, Pre-Raphaelite painting and Art Nouveau). Darlington has a degree in illustration, which she originally intended to lead to a career in book illustration. Kerry now works from her studio at home in North Wales, using all of these influences. Her work includes contemporary landscapes and figurartive artwork, each carrying her unique style.
