We’re already licking our lips in anticipation at the host of shows opening in east London this week and prominent among those we’re looking forward to is lovely-looking new work from Supermundane. His exhibition Super-Alpha “takes his love of typography to its natural conclusion” creating bold letterforms filled with intricate, detailed imagery.
The artist, aka Rob Lowe, says: "Coming from a graphic design background I’ve always had a love of typography. The alphabet is an amazingly resilient code that can take a huge amount of abstraction whilst still being recognisable to us. The core letter shapes can be seen as frames that can be clothed in endless ways.
“I have a preference for bold, simple letters and coupling that with my signature drawing style was a very natural progression.”
Alongside this celebration of all things alphabet, a selection of Rob’s prints that use typography will also be on show – a real visual treat in the space where typography and illustration come together.
Super-Alpha is at the Lomography Gallery Store from June 6 until June 28.
