Work Hard & Be Nice To People: Anthony Burrill releases new editions for Jealous Gallery

Graphic artist, print-maker and designer Anthony Burrill is renowned for his persuasive, upbeat style of communication. His work is held in the permanent collections of London's Victoria and Albert Museum, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, New York and has been exhibited in galleries around the world including the Barbican Art Gallery, the Walker Art Center and the Design Museum, London.

In an upcoming exhibition, Burrill takes his work to a larger scale for Shoreditch-based screenprint studio and gallery, Jealous. “I am delighted to work with Jealous on two new editions. These large-scale screen prints take the typographic simplicity of my letterpress work to a new and exciting place.

"The increase in size restates the message of my work not only in scale but also in intent. The two phrases I’ve picked for the editions are my personal mission statement, I think we should all be more inquisitive and much nicer to each other.

"My ambition for these pieces is that they will speak to as many people as possible, they are intended as positive propaganda to promote a happier way of living."

Words and language are an important part of Burrill’s output and he has developed a distinctive voice that is sought after not only by collectors of his posters and prints but also by clients including Apple, Google, Hermés, the British Council, London Underground and the Design Museum.
