AFFORDABLE ART FAIR X JEALOUS
PARTY LIKE IT'S 1999 PACKAGE
To help us mark 20 years of affordable art in style, we’ve teamed up with Jealous artist Dave Buonaguidi to create a limited edition screenprint available exclusively at our upcoming autumn fair. Fusing Dave’s typographic style with our fair-theme, ‘Party Like It’s 1999’, this celebratory screenprint not only marks our first fair in ‘99 but promises to pack a punch for years to come. In a special Live Art session at the fair on Thursday evening, Dave will be finishing each piece with a glitter overlay of your choice – a great chance to meet the man behind the work, while he personalises your print ready for you to take away that evening.
We’ve created the ultimate party package including your hand-finished limited edition print, a ticket to the Thursday Late View – where we will be celebrating with complimentary cocktails and a live DJ – as well as the opportunity to meet Dave and have your piece finished in your choice of glitter between 5 – 9pm.
Late View ticket and print package: £95
Meet the Artist: Dave Buonaguidi
Dave Buonaguidi has worked in advertising for over 30 years, founding St. Luke’s, the world’s first advertising co-operative and labelled as ‘the most frightening company on earth’ by the Harvard Business Review. He has since worked as Creative Director at Channel4, founded the advertising agency Karmarama and Chief Creative Officer of the London office of Crispin Porter and Bogusky, just recently opening yet another start-up company of his own. In 2003 he created the iconic ‘MAKE TEA NOT WAR’ poster for the anti-war march, which now forms part of the Victoria and Albert Museum collection and also hangs in the Trento Museum of Modern Art.
During a year-long hiatus from the advertising world, Buonaguidi set upon learning a new skill and undertook a screenprinting course, which in turn gave him the freedom to finally find an out-put for the many ideas that had been swimming around in his head.
