Our pop up print shop is back ! From Thursday 20th until Sunday 23rd December 2018 we will be taking over Protein Studios once again for our annual Christmas Fair Print shop extravaganza!
As ever we have invited a host of new artists to join our They Made This family. So alongside the likes of Morag Myerscough, Eike Konig, Supermundane, Rude, Anthony Burrill, Jimmy Turrell, Damien Poulain, Peter Judson, Hey Studio, Ian Stevenson, Rude, Crispin Finn, John Booth, Steve Wilson, and Jordy Van Den Nieuwendijk we are delighted to announce Kelly Anna London, Alva Skog, Alex Booker, Daisy Emerson, Ana Jaks and Mary Lou Faure, Jon Doodle and collage artist Flick, Cut, Stick to our roster !
We are also collaborating with Great Ormond Street Hospital and will feature a series of 30 limited edition prints from their ‘Then. Now. Always’ campaign, a project celebrating 30 years since their Wishing Well appeal. In celebration of the campaign, a group of 30 leading designers and illustrators have joined forces to create a limited collection of bespoke artworks. This exclusive artwork has been inspired by the distinctive colours and style of the 80s and produced exclusively for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. All prints will be on display at Protein and 100% proceeds from the sale of the prints will go directly to GOSH.
We are also featuring 4 limited edition prints, created exclusively for Amnesty International. The artworks, by Morag Myerscough, Marcus Walters, Rude & Damien Poulain come in two sizes, A3 and 50 x 70cm. All proceeds from the sale of the prints will go directly to Amnesty International.
And if that is not enough we have joined forces this Christmas with Bravery Co, a wonderful cancer charity founded by Emily Somers, an art director who beat cancer not once but twice. Inspired by her own experience of chemo, cancer, naps, and turbans, she is creating headscarves with artists for cancer patients around the world in the hope to give bravery to others going through something she knows only too well. We are so excited to be collaborating with all of these wonderful charities and hope to bring some festive gifts with meaning to your christmas present shopping !
We will also be working with a selection of art collectives including our friends over at The Art Of Ping Pong and Mean Mail, plus many more to be confirmed. Plus with our annual graphic art tombola, mince pies and mulled wine, this is a pop up not to miss.
