Those inky Huns are back again! What an honour it is to have samples of their wares hanging on our walls and in our clubs – ’nuff said really.

. . .

In truth this is a shockingly brief bio as the number of these things we have to write is growing and so are the numbers of places to hang in – its getting difficult to keep up with all the duties! This remarkable body of work that The Stick Up has collected from Germany has frankly made this profile a daunting prospect – hence them being written about last!

What must be noted though is that debuting with the Posterkrauts’ postal tube to Brighton is the work of Zum Heimathafen – depicting soft and peaceful scenes with wandering souls ambling thoughtfully through the compositions…

Really do check out their link down there as the wealth of quality posters in their electronic vault is breathtaking – like a hot currywurst!

Look out for a range of work so varied in mood and style that it would be impossible to sum up in one bloggy sentence. (I bailed out quite successfully there don’t you think?)

Screen-Printed Gig-Poster : Crystal Stilts – Fritte

A riotous German invasion is under way, employing the simplest of methods to secrete themselves onto British soil – the postal service – and it was us who invited them ladies and gentlemen!
What with Hamburg having played host (most hospitably) to Europe’s biggest poster expo (Flatstock) for what must be approaching ten years now, it would have been quite wrong to not include work by these guys.

Screen-Printed Gig-Poster : Metz – Mitchum d.a.

The 5 artists who are participating have sent some real treats in their own various styles…

Look out for Fritte’s dynamic graphic style, perhaps the result of his woodblock and lino-cut skills… for the vivid and somewhat deranged imagination of Mitchum d.a. (he’s quite a tinker)… for the long tall whimsical wall-pleasers of Grace Helly… for the soft and carefully considered blends of Senor Burns… and for the strong, traditional and frankly masterful graphic communication of Lars Krause.

In their own words :
“Churchill said ‘The Huns are always either at your throat or at your feet’ 

…If we might add, now you can also put them on your walls.”
