The show is the fifth annual Blisters exhibition, and will display a curated selection of 40 prints by 40 artists, all for sale at £40 each.
Founders of Print Club London Rose Stallard and Fred Higginson say, ‘We’ve always had the idea of doing a music-based Blisters – there have always been screen-printed gig posters, especially in America, although now more popular here in the UK. So it seemed the most obvious and natural thing that we would eventually do a Blisters music-inspired show.’
Taking cues from the artists’ favourtie band, gig, musician or song, the pieces range from this gorgeous Bauhaus-esque Bowie print, by Concepcion Studios:
To Hattie Stewart’s characteristically colourful Beyonce homage:
To Ben Marsh’s Red Hot Chill Peppers print, which harks back to the era when the band’s sartorial efforts frequently relied on nudity and socks:
Among the designers and artists feature in the show at Stanley Donwood, Fred Deakin and iconic punk designer Jamie Reid.
Throughout the show’s two-day tenure Print Club London will also be hosting a gig from Fiction Records and a series of screenings by G . F Smith, while burger-mongers Lucky Chip and cocktail experts Ruby’s will be on hand to serve up refreshment on the opening night.
Blisters: Sound session takes place on 12 and 13 September at Print Club London, MC Motors, 28 Millers Avenue, Dalston E8 DS
