We’re loving the work of Elliot Kruszynski who recently sent us a parcel full of excellent prints (which you can see a video of over on our Instagram profile). These images are based on characters form popular 80’s sitcoms and we think they show off his fun and graphic style perfectly. See more of his work at elliotkruszynski.co.uk.

Print Club London is presenting a series of posters as part of this years Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House featuring 16 of their most popular artists. Each artist was asked to reimagine one of the movies that will be screening at the event and this image by Rose Blake beautifully captures a tender moment in 80’s hit film ‘E.T’. This poster will join the likes of Hattie Stewart's interpretation of 'Spring Breakers' and a 'Ghostbusters' inspired poster by Casper Williamson.

The exhibition runs from 31st July - 25th August at Somerset House.

Excerpt: Tools of the Trade- Jordy van den Nieuwendjik

In the latest edition of Wrap, we asked eight artists from around the world what tool was most important to their creative practice, and why it is they couldn’t work without it. Here, in a series of posts, we share a few snippets from what we found out…

Dutch artist Jordy van den Nieuwendjik couldn’t choose between paint or crayons for his most essential tool as he finds them both equally important to his practice at the moment. But, he did find it easy to pick working by hand over working on the computer – “Using the length of the arm instead of a twist of the wrist is very important for the spontaneity of drawing”, he told Wrap.
