Mentioned this at the end of last week, but it’s now been officially announced, the new Let Them Hang Print is a wicked collaborative piece from the following artists
- Mau Mau
- (Graham) Paris
- Mr Jago
- China Mike
- Will Barras
- Darren Groucutt
- Nick Walker
- What Collective?
It’s being done to celebrate 40 years in the printing trade of Paul who runs Screen One down on Jamaica Street, and has done printing for all of these guys at one point or another. The print’s been commissioned to go with the Drewett Neate auction, the preview of which is starting at the end of next week at the Ultralounge in Selfridges in London (sounds like there’s a lot of painting going on around and for this show too).
Have seen the piece in its rough form, and it’s wicked. Imagine the image in the previous blog, drawn by China Mike, then tagged/stencilled/surrealed and augmented with bloody great arrows by the artists involved. There are a load of other random little bits to it with special meaning to those involved, which are gonna be fun to spot and try to work out…
If you get to the auction preview in London, you can even pick yourself up an exclusive version of the print involving most of the artists contributing to it.
Hoping to bring you a sneak peak of at least part of the print as soon as poss. It’s gonna be a classic…
