3rd Poster Design Revealed

by 52 Weeks of Art

This is the third design for the 26 public art poster campaign which is to form an ever changing external exhibition around the city soon. The first three designs will be seen in the city in the next few weeks, with additional posters appearing thereafter.
The third design, produced by young artist Hamish Mckeown is a striking interpretation of David Garrick, former resident of Lichfield and friend of Samuel Johnson. One of the most famous actors of all time, Garrick walked with Johnson to London on his famous trip to seek opportunites to expand his literary career. Garricks arrival in Lichfield heralded much success.
Hamish's depiction alludes to a combination f both traditional woodcut and street art, even to the manner in which Banksy interprets form.
