Twelve posters have gone on sale to celebrate the 2012 Olympic Games. The posters have been designed by leading British artists, including four Turner prizewinners.
Bridget Riley’s original, lively “Rose Rose” piece is composed of horizontal, coloured stripes with the overall colour impression leaning towards the ‘pink’ end of the spectrum.
“For her Olympic print, Riley has arranged colours in horizontal stripes, indicating the direction of athletic tracks or swimming lanes. The relationships between the colours create a sensation of movement capturing the energy of sport and the Olympic Games.”
My advice would be to try to get hold of one of these as soon as you can as they are more likely than not destined to become collectors items.Bridget Riley's 2012 Olympics poster on sale by Olly
