Design duo Crispin Finn have just launched an exhibition of new screenprints at the Soma Gallery in Bristol. Each of the six prints brings together a selection of objects from the duo’s burgeoning collection of ephemera from around the world…

Yes, the new prints showcase Crispin Finn’s Womble-like tendency to hoard the kind of stuff that everyday folk leave behind or simply chuck in the bin. Sweet wrappers, food packaging, drinks bottles, airline sick bags, stamps, straws, lollipops, drumsticks, information cards… these object and more all appear in the six new prints, all rendered, but of course, in the duo’s distinctive palette of blue, red and white. Here are some images of the show and of the prints themselves:

Each of the prints is available as a 38 x 48cm embossed, two colour screenprint at £40 each. Or you can buy a set of all six for £200.

Pack Rat by Crispin Finn runs until November 13 at Soma Gallery, 4 Boyces Avenue, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 4AA.
