News - PosterSpy Exhibition


The global creative hub for poster designers, PosterSpy, will be hosting their first ever alternative poster art Portfolio Review events on 5th and 6th April...

At the end of each year PosterSpy, the online poster art showcase website, invites artists to submit their portfolios as part of their Annual Portfolio Review contest. This year there were 6 industry pros on the panel; Grzegorz Domaradzki, Bartosz Kosowski, Karl Fitzgerald, Joshua Budich, Chris Thornley and Michelle Gardiner. After 4 weeks of judging, grading and critiquing, the 6 judges found their top 10 from hundreds of submissions.

These ten artists are being showcased at Old Street Gallery in Shoreditch, London next weekend.


The grand opening of the exhibition on Friday 5th, beginning at 6pm will reveal the winner of the competition and two runners up. At 7pm, enjoy a special Q&A with this year's grand prize winner. To celebrate this year's portfolios being bigger and better than ever, guests will be very well looked after with free food (yes, there will be pizza) and drink all evening.

On Saturday, PosterSpy has two special industry talks scheduled. Doors open at 11am. At 2pm Doaly, the UK based artist who has worked for some of the world's biggest studios will be presenting which will be followed by a Q and A. The second talk will be taking place at 4pm and the audience will be given the chance to pick the brains of UK based artist Dan Mumford, who will be talking through his experiences, his screen printing techniques and how he has become one of the illustration industry's most recognisable artists.
