Début Art and The Coningsby Gallery are proud to announce Peter Strain's first solo London exhibition 'Admit One' from the 7th — 19th January 2013 at The Coningsby Gallery.
Private View: 6.00pm - 9.00pm Thursday 10th January 2013
The project looks to reinterpret classic and cult film posters. Much of the modern imagery associated with film marketing contains banal, spliced together pictures of the main actors with no soul or meaning behind it. Peter wants to create artworks that reflect artistry, skill and the importance of cinema.
Peter Strain is an AOI (Association of Illustrators) Critics’ Choice Award-winning illustrator based in Belfast.
He specialises in creating carefully composed, hand-rendered illustration and typography and always tries to experiment with texture and mark-making techniques to keep his work evolving. His work is hugely influenced by film and music and aims to tackle social, political and cultural issues with a highly distinctive hand lettering style, bold imagery and humour.
Prints of all the poster will be available to buy on the night and also through the gallery's online shop.
You can see more of Peter's work in his folio here.
