    Jan Kellwejt – Rainbow Mural

    Residents of Warsaw have had a blast of colour injected into their daily lives with the installation of a Jan Kallwejt mural on one of the cities main streets.

    The mural was commissioned by local travel agency Rainbow. Jan took the shape of their R logo and turned it into an island (complete with beach and sea) and incorporated all things travel and leisure into it. It’s certainly working on us… time to book a holiday!

    Thomas Burden – Win, Lose, Draw Exhibition

    Opening tonight at the Hay Hill gallery on Baker Street is Win, Lose, Draw. An exhibition of iconic sporting moments created by leading UK graphic artists.

    Art and sport often go hand in hand. Be it Ian Botham striking the ball for four, Thierry Henry drawing out the goalkeeper or A P McCoy achieving his 4,000th winner, there is something intrinsic about sport that really captures the imagination. Handsome Frank’s Thomas Burden loved the concept so much he created two original pieces for the show. One to celebrate Ian ‘Beefy’ Botham’s heroics in the 1981 Ashes and the other in honour of Mo Farah’s unforgettable Olympic double in during London 2012

    The private view runs this evening from 6.30 – 8.30 pm and includes a mix of digital and original works of art, each artwork having been signed by the featured sportsman to make it completely unique. All funds raised by the initiative are in aid of national charity, Willow.

    Paul Thurlby – Nest

    BBH New York were working on an exciting new campaign for Nest. They required Paul Thurlby to create a mock-wallpaper pattern, depicting a cat and a suspicious looking burglar, who’s night-time antics had been thwarted by the clever new technology. Here’s the final ad and the individual characters, which were all hand-drawn by Mr Thurlby.
