Bournemouth, England

ARTCRANK makes its first-ever visit to Bournemouth with a new show featuring handmade, bike-inspired prints by UK artists. We’re excited to team up with THIS Event Co. to show the world what’s possible when cycling and creativity come together in a community that loves and celebrates both.

About the Show


ARTCRANK® is a poster show about bicycles. Since 2007, ARTCRANK has introduced hundreds of thousands of people to handmade, affordable bike posters created by independent artists through live pop-up bike art shows in the US, UK and beyond — including shows in London, Manchester, and Bristol. We’re proud and thrilled to announce that we’ll stage our first show in Bournemouth on September 28, 2019 at The Echo Building in partnership with THIS Event Co.

This show promises to be a poster party like no other. But first, we’re going to need some brilliant poster artists. If you're a designer, illustrator, artist or creative type who loves bicycles and lives in the UK, you’ll find everything you need to know here:
ARTCRANK Bournemouth 2019 Artist Submissions

Prospective artists just need to provide URLs for three samples of previous art, design, illustration, or printing work. The work does not need to bike-themed or posters, but ARTCRANK does give special consideration for screen-print or letterpress, as those are the mediums featured in the show.

Only artists who are selected for the show will be asked to create new designs. ARTCRANK will share specific guidelines for the show with all prospective artists who submit work for consideration.

The Call For Artists closes on Saturday, July 27. Submit your samples today!
