Kemistry Gallery are extremely proud to host an exhibition of work by Seymour Chwast & Milton Glaser. For the first time in over 40 years, the work of Push pin studio will be on show in London.
Graham McCallum, one of the founders of Kemistry Galley says.
“As a young designer I went to a talk Milton and Seymour gave in London. They epitomised to me what being a designer was all about. They created work that was so fresh, intelligent, witty, thought-provoking and beautifully executed, I was in awe. 40 years later to be hosting an exhibition of their work is thrilling.”
Push pin Studios were a graphic design and illustration studio formed in New York City in 1954. For twenty years Glaser and Chwast directed Push pin, becoming one the most well respected studios in the world of graphic design.
The bi-monthly publication The Push Pin Graphic was a product of their collaboration, a selection of these will be on display during the show, alongside a series of posters and rarely seen sketches from the early days of Pushpin as well as more recent work.
Push pin has gone on to become a guiding reference in the world of graphic design. Today, Chwast is principal of The Push pin Group Inc, while Milton runs his own studio in New York.
A selection of prints and posters will be available to purchase at the gallery and online, each print will be limited, signed and numbered. A poster designed by Milton & Seymour especially for the exhibition will also be available.
