Pick Me Up Graphic Arts Fair
Artists and collectives took part in "Pick Me Up", a contemporary graphic art fair at Somerset House organized by Claire Catterall. Peepshow Collective showed a selection of prints, artwork, books and objects that were all available for purchase. They also ran a print workshop using pre-made woodblocks designed by the Peepshow team for creating one-off relief prints. Pictured above is Andrew Rae's "Ghost in the Machine" silkscreen.
HelloVon exhibited a variety of commercial and personal work, including some never before seen pieces. "Lion 01" was featured in Fast Company's "Pick Me Up: 8 British Rising Stars of Graphic Design."

Pick Me Up attracted more tan 14,000 visitors. There are hopes that the event will return next year at Somerset House and become an annual fair. The appeal of Pick Me Up includes its welcoming vibe and the ability to socialize with the artists. Says Claire Catterall in Eye Magazine, "I've never been one for the more traditional, 'museumy' kind of exhibition." Check out other artists in the show here and stay tuned next year for more news on Pick Me Up.
