Illustrators create a buzz

A group of international illustrators has created visions of future ‘beetopias’ for an exhibition to promote organisation the Honey Club.

The Honey Club was set up by Wolff Olins, youth charity Global Generation and social enterprise Urban Bees. It aims to promote bee-friendly activities around north London’s King’s Cross development.

The Beetopia exhibition is being held at the Guardian Gallery at King’s Cross and features the work of 20 illustrators from across Europe alongside five young people from Global Generation.

The five youngsters – Chris Batantu, Clara Goundry, Maria Goundry, Nene Jayne Camara and Tawfeeq Amode – all partnered with Wolff Olins designers to create their works.

Among the professional illustrators are Hvass & Hannibal, Jean Jullien and Sarah Boris.

Charlotte Coulais, Honey Club co-founder and Beetopiacurator says, ‘Beetopia is a formidable representation of what the Honey Club is about in its purest form: a place people are invited to collaborate, discuss and engage about bee-friendly behaviour in urban spaces in a unique and creative way.’

Beetopia is at the Guardian Gallery, 90 York Way, London N1, from 4-17 August.
