PRINT CLUB LONDON HOST THE FILM EXHIBITION OF THE SUMMER...16:04:00
Hello My Lovelies,
On Sunday night I said I would do this post on Monday, but because I was so ill I didn't manage to do it. I hope I can make up for it now and tell you all about the film exhibition of the summer. Well it was to me aha!
During the Film 4 Summer Screen, I went to have a look at the Print Club London Exhibition 'Summer Screen Prints', which highlighted the films shown during the event through limited edition prints, from some of the best artists around.
|Springbreakers By Hattie Stewart|
After being seriously impressed last year, I couldn't wait to see what this year had in store and I was not disappointed. The prints were so much better than last years and I felt like the prints were so much more focused on the films this year.
There were artists I recognised and have enjoyed seeing their work before, including Hattie Stewart who brought her graffiti style artwork back to life in this years 'Spring Breakers' piece. Stewart captured the crazy world of the females in the film perfectly, with the colours and images used in the print.
|The Royal Tenenbaums By Concepción Studios|
Other pieces that stood out for me was 'The Royal Tenenbaums' print by Concepción Studios, which showed all the best and some of the most remember able moments from the film through the lens of a camera. And the 'Hairspray' piece by Kate Moross, which highlighted the memorable songs in the film through the records on the wall.
|ET By Rose Blake|
But for many the film that will be most remembered from this year’s event, was 'ET'. The film was chosen by the public to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the summer screen and fans got to wear cool ET masks during the event. However film fans got a real treat with this print designed by Rose Blake, that I think captured the childhood memories that the film has produced for many. I know it did for me.
|Gentlemen Prefer Blondes By Cassandra Yap|
The exhibition also had a TV in all its art form glory to show how the prints were made and to talk to the artists which was a nice little thing to watch during the wait for the screening. However I will admit that I was a little bit taking selfies at this point with the images that I didn't manage to catch much of it. Whoops!
|A Fistful Of Dollars By Joe Wilson|
Although I did manage to drag myself away from the prints and selfie opportunities to purchase a few postcard images of the prints, which are now pinned to my memory board. I really liked that the exhibition had this, this year as I was able to get the images I liked at an affordable price that I could decorate my room with. There was a wide selection and I had a hard time choosing which ones to get, but I went with 'The Royal Tenenbaums' and 'ET' ones. However you could get the 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' and 'A Fistful Of Dollars'.
It was at this moment I had to leave the images and take my seat for the screening, but I can honestly say I am so happy with this year’s exhibition and I wish you could have all seen it as it has sadly now ended. But you can still check out the prints on the Print Club London website, which I have linked below...
The prints are always amazing and that was why I wanted to share them with all of you film lovers because they are just too good to miss. I am a huge fan of them every year, and I will definitely be going again next year to see what the artists come up with next!
