The University of Brighton’s Graphic Design & Illustration BA Degree Show is on show in London this weekend, giving us London-based folks the chance to check out some great work from this year’s graduates. Here’s our pick of the exhibition.
First up are two elaborate sculptures from Emily Frances Barrett, who was on the Illustration course.
Here’s a detail of the work above:
There were a number of other appealing installations as part of the exhibition. I particularly liked Zoe Landry‘s work, which included this piece, titled The Endless Forest, which contained a 3D forest world displayed within a wooden structure.
Landry, who was also on the Illustration course, also displayed this mix of small sculptures and screenprints.
Matt Chandler, a Graphic Design graduate, presented this installation of his work, which included a number of balloons featuring his contact details, a nice touch.
Nadine Shaban (Graphic Design) displayed a striking set of images inspired by the Egyptian revolution.
Sarah Julia Clark (Illustration), who works under the name Studio Her, created this set of posters exploring contemporary feminism.
Michael Hillman (Graphic Design) is showing a set of lecture posters titled Science or Alchemy.
Alex Wells (Illustration) is showing work with a maritime feel:
Hugo Evans (Graphic Design) has a set of bold screenprinted posters on display:
Mia Warner (Graphic Design) is showing a piece of arresting (if somewhat menacing) calligraphy:
Lucy Kirk (Illustration) draws on her former life as a farmer’s daughter in a set of small sculptures and drawings.
Jon Taylor (Illustration) is also showing a mix of illustration and sculptures, as well as some books.
We finish up the round-up with a set of paintings by Tom Matthews. More of his work can be seen here.
The University of Brighton show is at Netil House, 1-7 Westgate Street, London, E8 3RL all this weekend. You can also view the graduates’ work online at nowwhat2012.com.
