Since 2004, the London gallery Elms Lesters Painting Rooms has hosted seminal exhibits of contemporary artists, including graffiti artists Futura, Delta (Boris Tellegen), Space Invader, KAWS, and others. Here, graphic designer Iain Cadby documents the graphic components that accompanied exhibitions held between 2008 and 2014. The graphic design for each exhibition is examined, including specific visual language or identity design and accompanying projects, including books. The text by Gavin
Lucas provides a historical overview of the period, putting the gallery, the artistic movement of street art, and graphic design into context.
