A World of Informationby James Brown PAST SHOW 9 July 2015
In his first solo exhibition, James Brown will be expanding on his popular range of information prints, James is adding to this ongoing project with new and exclusive designs showcasing the best of his distinctive mix of illustration and type with a retro influence. Eight new large scale works will be exhibited alongside the existing prints in the series. His new work continues to show how we categorise, name and try to understand the geography and science of the world in which we live. These informative and decorative prints are not only useful in explaining some complex subject matters, but are also beautifully designed.
James Brown is a designer, illustrator and printmaker living and working in London. Trained as a textile and surface print designer, he worked in the clothing industry for over 10 years, producing print designs for men’s and women’s wear, but eventually embarked on a new career as an illustrator in 2007. His unique mix of type and illustration have lead to poster commissions from The Poetry Society, The Bishopsgate Institute and Columbia Road Traders Association to name a few. James has also been commissioned by The Guardian, Faber, GQ, and has most recently designed a range of pump badges for Truman’s Brewery.
Alongside James’ illustration practice he works as a printmaker, producing screen prints and linocuts on sale in shops and galleries all over the country, including three prints exclusively commissioned for the Victoria & Albert Museum shop.
A limited run of all the works on display will be on sale at the exhibition. For more information contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
