The exhibition, In It to Win It, will present three Olympic-themed paper installation pieces. The works reference vintage Olympic posters, and the exhibition will see colourful wall-mounted and ceiling-hung handcrafted installations, aiming to stir up a sense of energy and excitement, just as (we hope) the Games themselves will.

As well as the Olympics and Peter Blake, the artist also cites Bob Peak, Otl Aicher, Max Bill, Per Arnoldi, Yong Seung-Choon, Herbert Bayer, Alan Fletcher and Milton Glaser as inspirations.
