To be held in the basement bar of Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes in Shoreditch on Thursday 18 October, the event showcases 25 pieces of art from 18 Twitter-sourced artists. Ranging from illustrations, to photography, to 3D prints, the works are part of the #Twittbrief project, masterminded by London-based motion artist, Adam Rowe (@adamrowetv).
The project began in June 2012, when Rowe asked his Twitter followers to send in a word that could be turned into a piece of design; the response saw more than 30 artists create visuals from words tweeted to Adam each week.
Words that inspired the artists included ‘Marmalised’, ‘Illustrious’ and ‘Cutlery’, with intriguing visual results.
Rowe says, ‘Many of my followers are fellow designers who really liked the idea of creating an image via Twitter, and I¹ve had lots of different types of artists approach me to get involved. The quality of work has been fantastic and I¹m really excited to be showcasing it all in one place – hopefully it¹ll be the first event of many.’
