London 2012 Olympics-inspired Street Prints
By now we’re well and truly gripped with Olympic fever here at DW, so it’s a pleasure to see another cluster of stunning London 2012 themed prints grace our inbox.
The London Street Prints project is a collection of limited-edition prints by a group of different artists and designers, who have donated their time and work to be sold to raise money for London-based charity Broadway Homelessness & Support.
Organisers aim to raise £2012 for Broadway during the Olympics.
The prints are available online and will also be sold at an event this Saturday held, fittingly, in a 1950s-style boxing gym Gloves Gym in north London’s West Hampstead.
Among our favourites is this surreal look at the hurdling, by Pete Turner:
This take on Wenlock and Mandeville by Lucy Atherton is also rather cute:
And we were also quite struck by this minimal depiction of the stadium by Alan Clarke:
As well as displaying the prints, the evening will also be screening the Olympics, and visitors are advised to ‘bring your plimsolls’…
The exhibition will take place on 4 August from 5.30pm – 8.30pm at Gloves Boxing Gym, 198a Broadhurst Gardens, West Hampstead, London NW6. Visit the website [www.londonstreetprints.co.uk] or the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/LondonStreetPrints for more information
