UK ROCK POSTER EXPLOSION TOUR with BRAG
Brighton 19-22 June
24 Kensington St
BRAG (BRITISH ROCK ARTISTS GROUP) play host to the FIREHOUSE KUSTOM ROCKART COMPANY from SAN FRANCISCO on the BRIGHTON leg of their incendiary rock art poster tour.
This exhibition will feature some of the finest screenprinted poster work coming out of the UK, alongside posters from some of the legends of the American poster art scene. A rare chance to see these amazing limited edition, screenprinted posters in one venue.
The UK has been experiencing an explosion of rock poster art hitting the streets from screen printing studios that seem to be springing up in all sorts of various garages, warehouses and basements. England is currently witnessing a new pedigree of artist — clearly there is something cool happening here.
“I came to England, explains Chuck Sperry, in May of 2006 to teach a workshop at the Brighton Fringe Festival. My British students were so talented and excited about making rock posters, they formed the Brighton based poster collective BRAG and this in turn really fired me up, and made me want to come to England to see all the great art and music that’s going on here. That’s when we began planning this tour.”

A bit about BRAG:
Formed in 2005 as a result of having all met at a masterclass taught by Chuck Sperry during the SUBSCREENSONIC exhibition of 2005. Such was the groups’ enthusiasm and passion for making and designing limited edition screenprinted posters we formed BRAG (British Rock Artist Group). Brag have gone on to exhibit in Europe, the UK and the USA, and produced posters for bands and musicians such as Gallows, Iron and Wine, Queens of the Stoneage, Explosions in the Sky, Bonde do Role, Ian Brown, Orange Goblin, Devo and many more.
