Pick Me UpBringing together exciting international talents from the diverse field of graphic arts, the Pick Me Up art fair is a 12-day extravaganza dedicated to graphic art. This is an excellent opportunity to discover the latest talents in the graphic art scene. The spectacular Somerset House is once again host for this annual celebration of contemporary graphic art, design and illustration, first launched in April 2010. As well as the affordable artwork and limited-edition prints on sale from as little as £10, there's a lively series of events and activities including creative workshops, late-night art and music mash-ups, quirky family-fun events and interactive shopping spaces.
