VNA presents Lyrics and Type verse 2

This looks like being an interesting exhibition. Pictures based on lyrics, in Brick lane. Comb out your taches and get on your nicicles, it’s time to party out east. Here’s what Greg who runs it had to say:

“16 INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS VERSUS FAMOUS SONG LYRICS”

It’s come around again all you music and type lovers! Welcome to LYRICS AND TYPE: VERSE 2 –
another international typographic screenprint exhibition from the creator of the award-winning
arts culture publication WOODEN TOY QUARTERLY (AUS) with support from the good folks
at VNA MAGAZINE (UK).

Following on from the success of the LYRICS AND TYPE: VERSE 1 zine project at Gorker Gallery
(Oct 2009), comes the exciting second instalment in the series of LYRICS AND TYPE projects at
London’s East Gallery. Combined with an all new formula and a ‘bass dropping’ array of artists,
LYRICS AND TYPE: VERSE 2 aims to feature interpretations of both famous, past and present song
lyrics by 16 leading international typographers, designers, artists and illustrators.

Each of the 16 selected artists have been carefully invited by Wooden Toy and VNA Magazine to
respond to a project brief and discuss with the public through its exhibition on the importance
of music ‘versus’ influence and personal inspiration.
