Print Club London would like to proudly present our latest joint exhibition by artists Isabella Cotier and David Shand.

Join us in our Dalston gallery for an exciting evening of art, where we will be showcasing their contrasting styles with a curated selection of works by each artist. 

Combining Isabella’s loose, energetic sketches with David’s bold, striking collages, the exhibition will feature a eclectic display of pieces all available to purchase on the opening night.

David Shand

David Shand is best known for his subverted imagery of torn and decayed posters. His work explores how visual advertising loses its commercial message through time and decay and how new pleasing imagery and meanings emerge.

“I found myself drawn to old posters on the underground and I began photographing them. I found something very appealing about how these carefully crafted posters had become unshackled from what they were selling and their imagery had become random, abstract and playful."

David works in screenprint and collage and often combines both for editions and one-off works. He has sold his work through Printclub, Atom Gallery, Studio 73, East End prints, The London Affordable Artfair and the Druck Berlin Screenprint Festival. David trained as a graphic designer and has worked in design and illustration in London for 20 years.

Isabella Cotier

Since graduating from the London College of Fashion with a BA in Illustration, Isabella has been freelancing as an illustrator. Growing up in Florence, Italy she was surrounded by and taught a more traditional way of drawing. Some of her clients have included H&M, Fortnum and Mason, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood.

"My main point of interest is portraying people through expressive, unrestricted line. I want my drawings to remain loose. With the ubiquity of technology and today's tendencies toward Photoshopping and over editing, I like to play on my impulsivity, and never shy away from imperfections. I draw from life when and where ever I can, whether at live concerts or theatre productions, movement and performance is a theme I will come back to time and again."

"At the moment I am working on a project where I invite friends and strangers to my studio to be drawn. During the visits I quickly create a dozen or so drawings to capture their presence in line. I then work further to develop the drawings once the model has left and depend on my memory and the drawings for reference. It’s interesting to see what the memory chooses to remember about a person..."
