As I begin my journey with screen printing this weekend, I thought of hitting the streets for some inspiration. First stop at Epic Dalston for the DIY Art Market: overwhelmed by the sheer talent under one roof. Print makers, illustrators - riso, litho, screen, digital- every kind of printing technique- just going to prove that print isn't dead.
And guess who was having a solo show next door? One of my favourite artists who's work I had first seen in Brick Lane a couple of years back- Fanakapan. The woah- so -realistic inflated balloon art is hard to forget. Apparently he is touring all over the world now. Brilliant stuff.
Nest Stop: Haggerston. You've got to love Haggerston for these! (see below)- and of course The Proud Archivist. Can spend hours here, by the canal and live music on lazy Sunday afternoons.
I can see a great summer ahead! Happy days.
