Super, Smashing, HATE!

Eighteen London-based artists were invited to illustrate their pet hate in circular form so all the images produced could be screenprinted onto dartboards. The result is 180 Things I Hate About You – a new exhibition of the screenprinted dartboards which will run at London’s Dazed and Confused Gallery, 112-116 Old Street, from 15 February – 14 March. Here’s a sneaky preview of some of the work…

Matt Johnstone can’t stand people who piss his doorstep. And who can blame him?

Steve Slocombe of Super Super magazine doesnt’ like the notion of hate, so his piece is called I WILL ALWAYS LUV UUUUUUUUUUUU. We aren’t making this up.

A poster about posters

Former Creative Future winner Zak Kyes created this series of posters in collaboration with Wayne Daly to accompany artist Ryan Gander’s talk at the Architectural Association in London last week. In keeping with Gander’s work, which focuses on language, ideas and communication, the poster itself became an artistic collaboration between the artist and Kyes. A conversation between the two about the nature of poster design forms the text that runs down the right hand side of the poster, while Kyes commissioned nine illustrators to draw a portrait of Gander at the artist’s request, because, as he explains, “I have never been drawn, and often watch those guys outside the Pompidou drawing people but am always too reserved to get one done.” Gander’s favourite of the nine renditions is by Ed Fella, shown above.

This Is Not A Brothel: Alternative Version

Following on from the Peter Saville sticker included with our current issue, Jessica Love spotted this alternate version on Cleveland Street, just off Gt Portland Street in London. Not quite as elegant as the Meard St sign but we like the over-excited use of exclamation marks.
