Speakers on the night
Graphic artist Anthony Burrill combines a knack for simplicity that packs a punch with analogue craft skills and powerful, positive messages. Burrill frequently collaborates with other forward-thinking creatives across disciples spanning music, architecture, curation, education and more; pushing his traditional discipline of choice, letterpress printing, into bold new territories.
Whether working on an art school pavilion, an acid house record, a book or a poster design, Burrill’s work is instantly recognisable. While his pieces all bear the marks of his letterpress process and all its joyful idiosyncrasies, Burrill’s direct and multidisciplinary approach is one that’s constantly evolving, combining tradition with bold new approaches and technologies.
Words, gentle humour, no-nonsense communication and people are at the heart of Burrill’s practice and his distinctive brand of upbeat messaging: its core DNA is one created through a longstanding passion for creativity, the power of simplicity and an innate curiosity about the world and people in it.
Jim Stoten is an artist, illustrator, animator, Stylophone player and all round psychedelic genius who lives and works in Hastings in East Sussex.
He creates elaborate, dreamlike worlds full of narrative detail, comedy characters and animals. And as well as writing and illustrating a number of books for publishers such as NoBrow, he has created music videos, artwork for MTV, Urban Outfitters, British Airways , Habitat, Levi’s and The Guardian.
Final speaker to be confimed very soon
Watch this space
We will be joined by cream of the crop artists producing live art on the evening
Josephine’s work is a playful exploration in the way we think about space, colour, textures and everyday objects. From large scale murals, to illustration for print, her work is inspired by all things botanical, tuttu fruitti, 50's print design and archive illustration. Josephine studied Fine Art BA Hons in Liverpool & after graduating created lots of screen print which paved the way to her aesthetic of mural painting.
More live artists to be confirmed very soon
