Original screenprint poster for retrospective exhibition of artist John Latham

75 GBP50 GBP

John Latham was an influential artist who introduced spray paint to the art world (long before Banksy), advanced science theories and held work in numerous permanent collections including London's Tate Gallery. 

I was fortunate enough to meet him during the Summer of 2005 before he passed away and was subsequently invited to take part in his retrospective exhibition as part of Camberwell Arts Week in London.

This screen-print is one of a series of posters that were used to promote the exhibition whilst acting as a navigational route to the venue (some of the other posters are still available). 

The black dots in a spray painted form, represent John’s theories of the least event (minimum change of state in minimum duration) and reflect his signature use of spray paint. The artwork is printed on 'blueback' paper intended for 'flyposting' a nod to John's anti-establishment attitude.

'A mile without town' is a shop presenting the work of Marc Cowan.  

I'm interested in exploring the boundaries between design and fine art. 

The most important element for me is the idea. Occasionally these ideas evolve into little objects and prints that might be nice for other people to own and that's what you'll find in my shop.
