Founded in 2000, Peepshow has achieved a rare alchemy: corralling a set of unique visual talents into a cohesive - and influential collective. In 2015 they won 'Outstanding Motion Design' at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards for their work on the documentary series 'How We Got To Now With Steven Johnson'.
You’ve seen their work in Creative Review, The Telegraph, The Guardian, The New York Times, Design Week and Varoom and in shows at the ICA and the Hayward Gallery. They were also artist-in-residence at 'Pick Me Up' at Somerset House in 2012. And now these critically acclaimed artists are showcasing personal work in Shoreditch, the home of the collective.
A rare opportunity to see the personalities behind the commercial work, the show takes a vibrant, colorful journey through the imaginations of London’s most successful illustrators and explores their individual personal practice which is informed by and complimentary to working as part of a collective. Through their chosen work, glimpse their personal preoccupations, fantasies and aesthetics, unadulterated by commercial briefs or outside art direction. They’re returning to their roots of “making stuff” and invite you to join them to share their new work.
Featuring Jenny Bowers, Luke Best, Spencer Wilson, Miles Donovan, Lucy Vigrass and animations by Pete Mellor, the exhibition showcases a combination of illustration, Graphic Art, collage and animation.
The show also marks the opening of their new print shop, powered by thehub, which can be found on their website: www.peepshow.org.uk/news/
