Renowned for curating and dealing screen-printed artworks, as well as its workshops, Print Club London has hand-picked an assortment of artists and styles including Rose Blake, street artist RYCA , Ben Rider and Lucille Clerc, to reflect the veritable variety of films featuring on the big screen.
Open during the day and for each evening event, the Summer Screen Prints exhibition will feature established designers alongside emerging new talent in the illustrative world. Each exhibiting artist will reimagine a poster for one of the films in this season’s line-up, taking particular scenes, quotes, characters or anything else from their selected title as inspiration.
Each of the posters will be part of a limited-edition, signed by the artist and numbered, and exclusively available to buy for £50 from the exhibition at Somerset House.
