As Britain prepares to leave the EU, Manchester-based illustrator Stanley Chow and designer Dave Sedgwick have joined together to create a unique set of prints, each one designed and illustrated as a celebration of the remaining 27 EU countries.
Hello Europe is an exhibition that will launch on Friday 29 March – the official date when we say goodbye to the European Union (which is now likely to happen as early as 12 April). It will take place at Elecktric Bar in Chorlton where you will see the full set for the first time.
The two local creatives agree that a "hello" is much better than a "goodbye". Here, we share just a sneak peek of what will be on display. You be able to purchase postcards of the prints on the launch night of the exhibition and prints will be available to buy from 29 March at www.thestanleychowprintshop.com.
Of course, this isn't the first time Stan and Dave have collaborated. They have previously worked together for the charity Forever Manchester – when a set of prints was created for various locations across the city.
Stan Chow has a background in illustration and has worked with the likes of Manchester United and The New Yorker. Dave Sedgwick of StudioDBD, also works with a variety of clients both locally and nationally.
