Freelance graphic designer Sam Oakley has built on his love of the ‘brutalist aesthetic’ for his first solo art exhibition in London. I Love Concrete features screen-printed vinyl-cut graphic paintings of five landmarks of the architectural style: Bedford House and Trellick Tower, along with the Brunswick, Barbican and South Bank centres. ‘I like their uncompromising design,’ says Oakley, who trained as an architect. The exhibition runs from 13-17 November, between 12-7pm every day, at This Way Up Gallery, upstairs from the Dragon Bar, 5 Leonard Street, London EC2.
