The Little Prints is all about encouraging emerging artists and their practices. We had a brilliant response to our open call which has resulted in an exclusive exhibition of mini prints. Featuring works from both recent graduates and established practitioners in the UK, The Little Prints celebrates a new collection limited digital mini prints.The brief for The Little Prints was to think small; getting back to basics and focusing on the details. We wanted to bring out a range of accessible and affordable prints whilst maintaining our core goals of promoting new work from independent artists and making walls beautiful.
