Film magazine Little White Lies commissioned illustrators, such as Ian Wright, David Downton and Malika Favre, to create prints inspired by classic films of the 1970s for an exhibition at London’s Kemistry Gallery. A particular favourite is Autumn Whitehurst’s poster, inspired by the 1970 film Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

Friendship of the Peoples

Artist Adrian Gray has created an unusual installation at Apostrophe Baker Street in London, using seemingly impossible compositions of balanced stones. As well as creating his own art, Gray teaches the gravity-defying art of stone-balancing to school groups, helping them improve their concentration.
