The Carl Peploe Archive

Examples of the work of artist Carl Peploe are included in the Musgrave Kinley Outsider Art Collection, now housed at The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester.


I have worked with Carl for over twenty years and together we are now archiving his huge collection of artwork, which takes the form of books. These execise books, diaries and notebooks are filled with drawings, poems and collage, telling the story of Carl's life and interests and the changing political and social environment from the 1970s to now. 


I describe his work as a fusion of Heironymous Bosch and the seaside postcard, pre-raphaelite romanticism and VIz comic, with settings in and around Warrington and throughout history and all over the world.......
