pick me up

The Embankment Galleries at Somerset House is currently home to Pick Me Up, a contemporary graphic art fair.

The diverse showcase of international artists/illustrators includes Victo Ngai and assembled images by Polly Becker

There are prints for sale, illustrator Anthony Burrill in residence, live music and creative workshops.

Alongside the fair is Joy of Living a charity project that raises money for Maggie's Cancer Care Centres. 

Leading designers have submitted original artwork on a simple sheet of A4 graph paper.  The result is a diverse collection of illustrations, cut-outs, collages and 3d paper engineering. 

All the designs are sold anonymously to encourage buyers to purchase the artwork they truly desire.
