V&A Print

image

I made a very special print for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

This is my first ever Risograph print. The colours are best seen in real life, they are very bright and vibrant.
The edition size is 200 and each is hand numbered and signed by me. The size is A3.
It’s only available from the V&A from here.

The print, entitled ‘We Play at the V&A’, is about the exploration experienced by visitors to the museum. There are references to modern day culture and fashions in the characters as they dance around a selection of exhibits from the museums collection. The characters are caught contemplating the worth of the trinkets and clutter they surround their modern lives with and whether they will hold any value in hundreds of year’s time. Perhaps that’s not important now though; perhaps we should enjoy, learn and play whilst we still can.
