Retrospect: Poster art exhibiton at CORD Feb 2011

I visited a small poster art exhibition after attending a zine fair at the Art Corner (R.I.P) were a member of the one69a guys suggested i visit a poster exhibition at COrd. The exhibition was mainly fine artsy/graphicy/surreal/commercial posters that varied in what they were trying to convey,stylistically. Personally i favour the more surreal,sci-fi, collaged style but also interesting typography and characterisation with splashes of colour. I actually forgot my camera on this particular day...slightly annoying but i've managed to find some work by the collaborations/artists featured in the show..some more recent, such as a public art, screen printing project by ONE69a, who are heavily based at Islington mill. They work in scree printing on various different materials and for purposes such as exhibitions,festivals to restaurant menus. : note to self : sticking cardboard with your work on up onto a wall is not illegal.

Ashes 57: a female: black and white curving,swerving lines, installation, exhibiting artist. ( shown at the top of the page) and

swoon : USA based: shows how you can take poster art into a 3D installation-like exhibition expirience,different from the layout of the CORD exhibiton.
