It's almost that time of year when Film4 Summer Screen offers film screening nights at the neo-classical courtyard of Somerset House – forming London's largest outdoor screen. And each year Print Club London collaborates with Somerset House to showcase original screen-printed film posters inspired by the programme. Also check out Print Club London's upcoming show for its own artist Oli Fowler.
Twenty original artworks have been created for the fifth edition of the Summer Screen Prints exhibition, making it the most extensive line-up to date. The series includes Joe Cruz' poster for Oscar winning Moonlight, Hattie Stewart's for Cruel Intentions and 18 more stunning interpretations of film. Anyone can go along to the free exhibition and buy the artworks online for £60 each.
A range of international artists – such as Steve Wilson, Lucille Clerc, Rozalina Burkova and Joe Wilson – have responded to a moment, theme, character or quote from a film in the season that resonated with them.
The outdoor film screenings will run from August 10 until August 23, with a mix of old, new, classic films and three UK premieres – An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, Patti Cake$ and The Square. Tickets are still available.
London-based artist and illustrator Hattie Stewart is loved for her crazy 'doodlebombing' and tongue-in-cheek artwork. Her bright colours and cartoon drawings can be seen in fashion, music and contemporary art.
Cruel Intentions is an cuttingly unromantic teen movie from 1999, based on Pierre Choderlos de Laclos’ 1782 French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses (also filmed as a period piece as Dangerous Liaisons in 1988). The film replaces 18th century France with wealthy high schoolers in New York City, including Sarah Michelle Gellar's Kathryn who forms the focus of Hattie Stewart's poster.
