This Summer Festival showcases the best in illustration, print and graphic design.
With 10 exhibitor stands, the festival features the work of JSR Agency, Brothers of the Stripe, Hero of Switzerland, Hato Press, Campaign for Drawing and East London Printmakers amongst others. The Summer Festival brings together commercial agencies, independent start-ups and charities, celebrating the breadth of illustration and the graphic art practice and its dynamic relationship with contemporary culture.
Featured artist Ruby Taylor will create a tropicana-themed mural designed exclusively for the event, as well as providing some exclusive new prints for The London Illustration Fair Print Shop.
Alongside the exhibitor stands, throughout the weekend there will also be one-on-one ‘drop in’ portfolio tutorials with Handsome Frank Director Tom Robinson, ‘Print Your Own Ice Cream Monster’ with print studio Hello Print, live screening printing with urban illustration junkie Ashes 57 and ‘The Mad Man In A Box Experience’ with political cartoonist Simon Eaves.
Hoxton Arches’ two outside areas will play host to a live mural painting by David Shillinglaw, Brazilian BBQ from the Churasco Gang, live DJs and a summer-stocked bar.
The Festival will also see the launch of The London Illustration Fair’s Print Shop
