Peso uses time-honored print methods combined with new processes, to explore analogue and digital realms in print. An ongoing collaborative project between Printmaker, Thomas Mayo, and Illustrator, Edward Tuckwell. Based in East London.
Our aim is to produce striking hand printed artwork that is affordable to the public. We have combined our knowledge of print and design to develop a process that allows us to keep manufacturing in-house, so that everything we make comes directly from us..
In 2016 we exhibited at Pick Me Up: Graphic Arts Festival in Somerset House, where we created customisable artwork in residence for 2 weeks with the aid of public interaction, and collaboration from leading graphic artists.
At the start of 2017 we released our first styled poster pack. Weight consists of three 2-colour isometric designs aimed at tricking the eye into seeing a form that wouldn't otherwise exist. Taking cues from geometric patterns, vintage tile design, and magic eye illusions.
For summer 2017 we teamed up with Secret Garden Party for their final ever hedonistic event. Channeling our inner Rupert Murdoch, Piers Morgan, and Don Draper, we took the factual legitimacy of news media to an all time LOW, live printing FAKE NEWS posters and slogans throughout the festival.
