“Lots of things happened in 1983. McEnroe and Navratilova were at the height of their dominance at Wimbledon, Ghandi won at the Oscars, William Golding won the Nobel Prize for Literature, the arrival of compact discs sent vinyl record sales into a steep decline and more than 125 million viewers tuned in to the last episode of M*A*S*H. All of this however was overshadowed by the arrival in Covent Garden of a small but perfectly formed illustration agency called CIA. We launched, rather spontaneously, with around twenty established artists, resolved in what they were doing and promoting a loose, expressive approach to image making.”
