Dorothy Circus Gallery London is thrilled to present a brand new focus exhibition by the internationally renowned Italian artist Alessia Iannetti, titled The Little Boy and the Glowing Globe. For this show, Iannetti showcases twelve miniature graphite and watercolour illustrations from the tale of the same name “The Little Boy and the Glowing Globe,” written by the Swedish musician Anna von Hausswolff and her sister, the film director Maria Von Hausswolff.

The tale is part of the children benefit book project Stories for Ways & Means, edited by Waxploitation Records and illustrated by Alessia Iannetti. The project is committed to helping the children all over the world who suffer the consequences of war, and has been developed throughout the last ten years by Jeff Antebi, founder of the Californian record label Waxploitation Records.

This huge project combines music, figurative art, and literature and has realised the 350-page book of tales Stories for Ways & Means, which includes not only tales but also multimedia contents and has many rock music stars participating as co-authors: Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), Pixies's Frank Black, Laura Marling, Devendra Banhart, Alec Empire, Alison Mosshart (Kills, Dead Weather), Eugene Hutz (Gogol Bordello), Gary Numan and many others. All the proceeds of the book sales will be donated to Room to Read, 826 National, Pencils of Promise and WAR Child - organisations dedicated to the literacy teaching of children in the world.
