Into the Unknown competition, by The Barbican

Art Forms of Fiction, by BloodBros

The Barbican has announced the winners of its science fiction print competition, Into the Unknown.

The competition was launched to mark the cultural organisation’s upcoming sci-fi exhibition, which is due to open in June and will explore literature, art, film, music, comic books and video games related to the genre.

The overall winner is London-based illustrator BloodBros for his artwork Art Forms of Fiction. His entry is a “specimen sheet” made up of different sci-fi themes, taken from various films and books. He will receive several prizes including Barbican membership for a year.

Runners-up include Andrew Hulme, Ed Blunt, Guy Warley and Kirsty Fabiyi. Alongside BloodBros, they will have their prints exclusively sold through the Barbican shop, and will receive advice and guidance from current designers.

All the artworks are available to pre-order as A3 prints from the Barbican shop for £20 each. They are digitally printed on 300gsm, uncoated GF Smith paper, and finished with an embossed logo, and will be dispatched from 1 June.
