It’s been a couple of weeks since we packed up shop at Pick Me Up (Somerset House), but just before we did we finally had the chance to snap some photos of the decorated space free of the 14000 strong crowd that had visited the event over the 10 period. Here are the photos and if you want to read more about Pick Me Up and our presence there, follow this link. In what many were heralding as the first contemporary graphic art fair of its kind in the UK, people could visit working studios and print rooms and in some cases even take part. There was a great line up of contemporary illustrators and graphic artists, including Rob Ryan and Luke Best, and a strong presence of successful young collectives Peepshow, Le Gun and Evening Tweed as well as hip Shoreditch gallery Concrete Hermit, amongst others. The fair gave the general pubic the opportunity to buy limited edition, affordable graphic art, illustration and design and the overall response was very positive.
We were very fortunate that Creative Review were so kind as to take some photos of our exhibition space, we were so busy tending to the stall itself we hadn’t gotten round to it yet. But anyway here they are. The idea was to transport our studio to pick me up and at the same time be in keeping with the Topsy Turvy theme. If you click through you will see the interview and in spite of looking like a bit of a muppet, I still managed to flick through a number of our newest publications with out too much gaucheness.
Somerset House has kindly asked Nobrow to take part in Pick Me Up, the first contemporary graphic art fair in the UK. The fair will bring together the most exciting graphic artists working today, giving you the opportunity to buy limited edition, affordable graphic art, illustration and design.
We will be there in full force as of Friday the 23rd of April selling prints, books, comics and even pillows! So don’t miss your chance to swing by and see the fair, there will also be a great line up of other artists and studios, including Rob Ryan and Luke Best as well as studios Peepshow, Evening Tweed and gallery Concrete Hermit. You can buy tickets here, it’s well worth the fiver…
Here’s our latest. Jeff: Job Hunter, the next in the 17×23 series by artist Jack Teagle is close to fruition and will be ready for release on the very day our exhibition at Somerset House launches. This is a sneak peek of the cover more to come soon!
Hi Everyone, firstly, welcome to our brand new website; secondly, I’m sorry it has been such a long time since our last post – you see, between designing, editing, proofreading, printing, and the construction we have had going on in our office the last few weeks, we have had no time to keep all you lovely people up to date! sincere apologies, but now we are back and here’s our latest:
What we at Nobrow are particularly excited about these days is that WE ARE OPENING UP A NOBROW SHOP/GALLERY at our premises on 62 Great Eastern street! The grand opening is on the 27th of May kicking of with a brilliant show by the very talented Mr Jack Teagle we will be selling exclusive prints, posters and original works throughout the exhibition as well as all of our publications and many other goodies. Hope to see you there!!!
Nobrow came virtually out of nowhere, so our first show had to be spectacular. We were kindly given the space at Shoreditch stalwart DreambagsJaguarshoes to doll up for a 6 week exhibition and we jumped at the opportunity. Aside from the unbelievable stress of putting the show up there was that underlying, lingering fear that no one would come…
Thankfully that was far from being the case, the first show was packed out all night and we sold bucketloads of magazines as well as consuming several palletloads of alcohol amongst the 150 or so people who attended the event. It started off with a resounding sense of approval and we were given the confidence to press on.
So thank you to everyone who came and supported us, and continue to do so by attending our events and buying our books. Below are some photos of the space before and during the exhibition.
