Pick Me Up: Graphic Arts Festival 2014

On Friday 2 May OCA tutor Christian Lloyd will lead a study visit to the Pick Me Up Festival at the Embankment Galleries, Somerset House.
Now in its fifth year, the UK’s original contemporary graphic arts festival Pick Me Up showcases graphic art in its all its forms. Aimed at being the antithesis of a traditional art fair, Pick Me Up is a fun and informal festival featuring quirky studio spaces in which to shop for affordable artwork from the great and good of graphic arts, and a daily, lively line-up of events which encourage both budding and bonafide artists of all ages to get involved. Pick Me Up 2014 promises to be bigger and better than ever with an even wider range of illustration and design represented, from fashion and architecture to comic books and album covers.
Places are free of charge to OCA students and are reserved by sending an email to enquiries@oca-uk.com

One thought on “Pick Me Up: Graphic Arts Festival 2014

  • The exhibition is a great opportunity to see some of the new wave of illustration and print-making that has emerged over the last 10 years. Much of the work has been produced by collectives that are as interested in forms of music, self-publishing and events as the illustration and typography itself.
    There’s a few of my ex-students in there (Nous Vous) and others have worked with Anorak magazine. It should be a fun event, and as always I’m looking forward to meeting a group of OCA students from different courses.
    See you there, Christian
