DOCUMENTARY: Ron King: Alphabets, Bandits, and Collaborations


My latest documentary for Goldmark is now available to watch online. Featuring interviews with writer, art historian and critic Mel Gooding and artist, designer and filmmaker John Christie, our latest Goldmark film provides a sensitive and revealing insight into the life of the extraordinarily inventive and energetic Ron King.

When a young boy sees a photo of the decapitated head of notorious Brazilian bandit Lampião in a book, it becomes an obsession and inspires him to create incredible multifaceted artworks in a life time journey that takes him from Brazil, to England, Canada and the United States as he struggles to have his work recognised and accepted.
