ARTCRANK is a show of bicycle-inspired poster artwork that introduces people to talented local artists and sends them home with affordable, original works of art. Since our 2007 debut in Minneapolis, we’ve held shows in bike-lovin’ cities like Portland, San Francisco, New York, Austin and Los Angeles. This is our fourth show in London.
Thanks to Dark Star Brewing and Paniagua for keeping the crowds at our opening refreshed, and to Lezyne and Colorplan Papers for kicking in to help us celebrate bikes and local artists. Together, we’re supporting Otesha Project UK, a nonprofit organization that uses cycling to empower young people from all backgrounds to take the lead in creating this change for themselves, their community and the wider world.
If you’re new to this whole ARTCRANK thing, spend some time wandering our site to see what we’ve done stateside in Austin, Denver, Minneapolis, Portland, St. Louis, and San Francisco. Or jump over to our Flickr and Vimeo pages for even more ocular enjoyment. Please check back for updates, and follow ARTCRANK on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the latest news.
