Bringing together a collective of 40 established and emerging illustrators, as well as designers and street artists, The Directors Cut will exhibit screen prints inspired by some of the world’s biggest blockbusters, including – The Royal Tenenbaums, Star Wars, Psycho, The Godfather, Metropolis and Planet of the Apes – with an opening evening set to once again draw crowds from across London’s creative scene. All limited-edition prints will be sold at £40 each, signed exclusively by the artist.
Artists were given a brief to submit a screen print inspired by a movie poster without referencing the film title, and over the course of the last six months, Print Club London’s curators have been inundated with over 1,000 entries. The final 40 have now been selected and include some of the industry’s hottest talent.
BLISTERS, the brainchild of Print Club London’s directors, Fred and Kate Higginson and Rose Stallard aims to offer affordable prints to a wider demographic by encouraging buyers to invest in original artwork, whilst promoting a dynamic contemporary art scene to a new audience.
BLISTERS – The Directors Cut will open with a free admission Opening Night on Friday 31 August from 6pm onwards at MC Motors (next door to the Print Club London studios), followed by an open day on Saturday 1 September. We highly recommend going to check it out if your in London, and maybe even pick up some new art for your walls. Personally I have my eye on the amazing Royal Tenenbaums print by Ashley Amery.
