Pick Me Up
On Saturday I went to Pick Me Up - a contemporary graphic art fair at Somerset House. Alongside some limited edition prints on sale and works on display from the likes of Mr Bingo, Melvin Galapon, Claire Scully and Siggi Eggertsson, there were pop up shops from Nobrow, Le Gun, Concrete Hermit and the amazing Peepshow Collective.
The big treat of course, had to be the perusing around Rob Ryan's studio that had been temporarily transported in it's entirety to Somerset House for the duration of the exhibition. Seeing the man and his crew in action - screen printing and cutting out those obscenely intricate paper cuts was pretty damn interesting!
Plus, Print Club London ran a series of screenprinting workshops and live demos featuring a very long list of guest designers - a veritable feast of up and coming graphic design and illustration goodness!
