Author: Print Club London's show of screen prints is all about music, gigs and rockstars
Following in the footsteps of the popular annual Blisters poster show, Sound Sessions presents a selection of 40 unique screen prints by 40 handpicked artists, limited to 40 editions per poster at £40 each.
Taking inspiration from their favourite band, tune, musician or gig, a curated selection of upcoming and established illustrators, graphic designers and street artists will show their limited edition posters screen printed on Colorplan paper provided by paper specialist G . F Smith.
They include prolific designers whose work has graced the album covers of The Chemical Brothers to The Sex Pistols and Ziggy Stardust. Top names are Fred Deakin, Kate Gibb, Stanley Donwood, Terry Pastor and Jamie Reid, whose exclusive artwork will be unveiled for the very first time on the opening night.
Rose Stallard and Fred Higginson, Founders of Print Club London said, “We’ve always had the idea of doing a music based Blisters - there has always been screen printed gig posters especially in America, although they're now more popular here in the UK. So it seemed the most obvious and natural thing that we would eventually do a Blisters music inspired show.”
Celebrating its 5th edition this year, Blisters has become one of UK’s most recognised poster shows, making limited edition screen prints affordable to a wider demographic. With all posters hand printed by the artists at Print Club’s studio and limited to only 40 editions each, each Blisters showcase features 40 striking artworks chosen from hundreds of submissions on a specific theme.
Admission is free to the event, which takes place on the evenings of 12th and 13th September, at the MC Motors warehouse, 28 Millers Avenue, London, E8 DS
