Now in its fifth year, the UK’s original contemporary graphic arts festival Pick Me Up showcases graphic art in all its forms. Aimed at being the antithesis of a traditional art fair, Pick Me Up is a fun and informal festival featuring quirky studio spaces in which to shop for affordable artwork from the great and good of graphic arts, and a daily, lively line-up of events which encourage both budding and bonafide artists of all ages to get involved. Pick Me Up 2014 promises to be bigger and better than ever with more late nights and an even wider range of illustration and design represented, from fashion and architecture to comic books and album covers.
Pick Me Up Selects 2014 features international rising stars of the graphic arts world specially selected by an industry panel. Each artist will be producing new, exclusive work to see and buy.
Pick Me Up 2014 invited the most innovative graphic art collectives, galleries and organisations to design site-specific spaces to exhibit, make and sell artworks, offering visitors a chance to experience a behind-the-scenes studio atmosphere.
On each day of the festival there will be an exciting and eclectic schedule of events, activities, and special guests leading talks and workshops.
Each day of Pick Me Up we will be running an exciting and eclectic mix of quirky family workshops, lively evening events and creative forums.
To celebrate Pick Me Up turning five, we've produced three short documentaries that showcase the artists and the festival.
