We at Clintprints had the incredible honor of meeting Rhys Wootten from Octopus Gallery in Brighton during the Austin Flatstock event and were asked to participate in their mini-flatstock event by showing a few posters in their exhibit. The show looks great and we are honored to be showing alongside some really amazing artists. Here is some info on the gallery and some links to photos from the event.

The FLATSTOCK poster show series is presented by the American Poster Institute (API). It is an ongoing series of exhibitions featuring the work of many of the most popular concert poster artists working today.
API and its FLATSTOCK series were organized in 2002 as a result of conversations between interested artists and supporters frequenting the popular web site GigPosters.com. The best concert posters have always captured both the essence of the music they promoted and the spirit of the time in which they were produced. This is as true today as it was in San Francisco during the Sixties.
The FLATSTOCK shows provide the general public with an ongoing series of opportunities to see fine poster art in person and to meet the artists who’ve created it — they provide the API with a way to present the poster artists collectively while showcasing the breadth of individual styles they represent.
This weekend is also the opening of the Pangea Seed show called Sink or Swim in Tokyo, Japan. We’ve shown a few leaks of the print already in previous posts but now we’ve got photos of the actual print and information about the release. Please check out Pangea Seed for more info about the show and contributions from other awesome artists.
