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.
