welcome to print club….the 1st rule is….

London-based screenprinting club, Print Club London is hosting another show of screenprints following the success of last years Blisters On My Fingers exhibition. Like last year, there will be 35 exhibiting artists (last year’s artists included Jon Burgerman, Steve Wilson, Richard Hogg, Serge Seidlitz, Jody Barton, Andrew Rae and Si Scott), 35 editioned and signed prints by each, selling for £35 a piece. Only this year, Print Club is offering the chance for all and sundry to be in the show which will take place in July at MC Motors in Dalston, London…

Illustrators and artists can submit designs for a chance to be one of the selected 35 exhibitors at this year’s Secret Blisters show. Simply send a low res version of your B2 (500 x 700mm) screenprint design to postershow@printclublondon.com no later than
2 April.

Another difference at this year’s show will be the secret element: Each exhibited print won’t be signed by the artist – to encourage people to buy the posters they like, rather than buying simply for the sake of who the artist is. This aspect of the exhibition may be, we suspect, driven by the fact that prints by street artists Eine and Pure Evil sold out instantly at last years show, possibly bought by people thinking the value of them might “do a Banksy”…
