FOR EXAMPLE: LISA KRANNICHFELD
Beautiful water colour paintings by the Arkansas based artist. Love the fluid, organic paint marks washed into place by the water, but yet they display such precise expressions within the subjects faces, and pose. Half expect eyes to open and faces to lift on the paper!
FOR EXAMPLE: JENNY BROWN
Loving the exotic and contrived ‘blossoming creatures’ collages, the second series of Jenny’s work that we have featured on ‘For Example’. Great Stuff!
FOR EXAMPLE: PETRA LEA

FOR EXAMPLE: BRENDA VAIANI
Love these Poloroid photograph, they are like perfectly framed, hazy views into another, mysterious, weird and wonderful world.
EVENT. FOR EXAMPLE: SPOKE
Set in the heart of one of London’s most creative boroughs, Spoke, a new cycling themed design and illustration event will be held in the CLF Art Cafe (Bussey Building) in Peckham on the 28th June.
Bringing together over 25 of the country’s foremost artists, cyclists and design enthusiasts for the first time, the FREE event will celebrate everyone’s favourite two-wheeled mode of transport at this inventive illustration gathering. From a special screen printing workshop run by Sonsoles Print Studio to an illustration competition from London Cycling Campaign, the all-day event will include performances by cycling themed musicians and DJs from SHED radio. A full list of artists, designers and illustrators exhibiting their work can be found below.
From hardy road bikers to fair weather enthusiasts, cyclists, art enthusiasts and the local people of London are encouraged to come and experience this one-off event. Spoke promotes and celebrates cycling through artists’ impressions and creative expression. Discover illustrators and designers who have adored the tranquillity, freedom and fun of cycling.
Rose Riley, Event Director for Spoke commented: “Peckham was the ideal place to host Spoke because over the past couple of years this area has not only become a hot-bed for art and illustration but also we’ve seen so many more people take to the roads on the bikes for commuting and sheer enjoyment. It just seemed the perfect time to combine two things that people in London are incredibly passionate about in one, fun and free event.”
Spoke – 11:00 – 17:00, Saturday 28th June 2014
