Coming to the neo-classical surroundings of London’s Somerset House in April is Pick Me Up, a new contemporary graphic art fair… 

In addition to the fair, Pick Me Up looks to have a range of interesting extras lined up:

Rob Ryan, he of the delicately cut-out works on paper, will be bringing his studio and printing press along, so that visitors can watch his entire working process unfold (sorry). Anthony Burrill will be among the guests invited by Ryan to make work, which will then be available to buy.

Print Club London will also be running a screenprinting workshop, featuring guest designers, and It’s Nice That are programming a series of films.

As well as a great looking exhibition of work from people like Alex Trochut, HelloVon, Mr Bingo and Rosie Irvine (who are each creating a limited edition print for the event), PMU will of course be hosting a number of stalls manned by various collectives and galleries.

Nobrow’s first foray into making toys – a collaboration with Ben Newman

Setting up shop at Somerset House will be Concrete Hermit, Le Gun, Nobrow and Peepshow, each offering up prints, drawings, books, T Shirts and all manner of printed ephemera.
