The One Ton Show at Shoreditch Town Hall brings together 100 artists, illustrators, graphic designers, photographers and print-makers to sell their work for just £100.
Why the retro interest? As well as the £100 restriction, the show has a theme of “London Lyrics” so all of the pieces are inspired by London-related songs. This has resulted in some great pieces inspired by favourite songs from the past, including “Itchycoo Park”, “Dedicated Follower of Fashion”, “Rain Fall Down”, “Down at the Type Station at Midnight” and “Electric Avenue”. Unsurprisingly, The Clash feature heavily with several pieces namechecking “London Calling”.
Perennial Retro to Go favourites, People Will Always Need Plates” are exhibiting at the show and above is their piece inspired by The Kinks’ “Waterloo Sunset”.
The show runs from Thursday 4th December to Sunday 7th December at Shoreditch Town Hall. Further details can be found The One Ton Show website.
