Nothing could be more appealing than watching a classic movie at London's beautiful Somerset House. Except, perhaps, for a special exhibition by Print Club London, showcasing limited edition, screen-printed film posters inspired by the venue's eclectic line-up for Film 4 Summer Screen.
Featuring work by a talented array of established and emerging artists and illustrators, affordable artwork will be available to purchase exclusively from the Summer Screen Prints exhibition at Somerset House and Print Club London's website￼.
The line-up includes French artist Jean Jullien, whose Peace for Paris symbol went viral last year. He will bring his signature bold lines and vivid colours to a special re-imagining of the poster for ￼ Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown. Artist Cassandra Yap will create a gothic and sensual design for Bram Stoker's Dracula.
Joe Wilson will present a strikingly intricate, hand-drawn poster for Robocop while Joe Cruz will combine a black and white film-still with vibrant colour for his representation of the Audrey Hepburn classic Funny Face. Peter Strain will incorporate memorable film quotes in an eye-catching tribute that calls to mind the classic grit of Trainspotting, especially for the film's￼ 20th anniversary.
Concepción Studios will bring their bold abstract style to A.I. thriller Ex Machina and there'll be two different posters from Lucille Clerc and street artist RYCA to celebrate some of Stanley Kubrick's best-loved films.
New for this year, you can get involved with a range of events, demonstrations and workshops, including live screen-printing in the courtyard on selected evenings, plus two hands-on workshops each weekend. On show until 29 August. More details at www.printclublondon.com.
