Film4 Summer Screen Movie Posters from Print Club London

London studio Print Club asked 16 creatives to design a two-colour screenprint based on a film being shown at this year’s Film4 summer screen at Somerset House.

Print Club London is a printing studio and gallery based in Dalston, East London. It was founded in 2007 by Fred Higginson, a sculptor and illustrator and Kate Higginson, co-founder of illustrator agency Higginson Hurst. Each year, Print Club runs one of the UK’s largest poster exhibitions, Blisters, which aims to provide affordable, original artwork.

To coincide with Film4’s annual Summer Screen film screenings at Somerset House, Print Club London were invited to curate a screenprinted poster exhibition using the same approach and style as their successful and highly anticipated annual Blisters shows.

The exhibition will be open daily at Somerset House’s West Wing Galleries from August 1 to August 21.

Sixteen illustrators were asked to design an original limited edition screenprint. Each illustrator was asked to select a film from the roster of screenings and create a two-colour print inspired by that film. Some of the illustrators selected include Kate Gibb, Anthony Burrill, James Joyce, Michael Gillette and HelloVon, as well as newcomers Hattie Stewart and Serge Seidlitz.

All of the prints will be hand screenprinted in limited editions of 200, signed and numbered by the artist and available to buy at £40 at printclublondon.com and somersethouse.org.uk/film.
