True to Life

Are you in Edinburgh this weekend? Pop down to Modern Two for True to Life, a look at British Realism in the 1920s and 30s. The show gathers some 70 paintings by a hugely talented yet overlooked generation of artists.

O Street designed the exhibition identity and marketing. True to Life focuses on a particular style of “hard edge” painting. We play on this theme by setting typography along a hard edge.

We also selected a colour palette pulled straight from the paintings; a literal approach for literal art.

It’s a riveting exhibition, so don’t miss it. True to Life is on at Modern Two until 29 October.
