Ketchum Pleon London Hosts Award-Winning Print Maker and Typographer Danny Flynn

- Especially Commissioned [email protected] Pleon Exhibition Features Designer Screen Prints Using Rock Star, Film Maker Portraits by Derek Ridgers

LONDON, March 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- A series of prints by Danny Flynn, well-known in the print and design field for his contemporary techniques in letterpress printing, graphic design and creative writing, will be unveiled at Ketchum Pleon, a leading public relations consultancy, on 25 March 2010 by the artist himself. All prints, which artistically interpret world-famous celebrity photos by Derek Ridgers, were especially commissioned and produced for the [email protected] Pleon exhibition, 'Every Bodies Enemies'. They will be on display for public viewing until 14 May 2010.

'Every Bodies Enemies' is Flynn's interpretation of a dozen of Ridgers' celebrity photographs, including Kylie Minogue, Dennis Hopper, David Lynch, Nick Cave, John Lee Hooker, Henry Rollins, Keith Richards, Frank Zappa, and Elvis Costello among others, producing a series of powerful screen prints juxtaposing image and typography to achieve a stunning and poignant effect aimed at revealing the mystery of the celebrity's look, pose and thoughts at the moment when the picture was taken. Any spectator, therefore, feels like a voyeur gazing through a keyhole into a secret and fascinating celebrity world. Some of the prints employ a unique technique which enables the application of different coatings, such as raspberry custard powder (David Lynch), and sugar (Nick Cave).

The [email protected] Pleon series is hosted by the London office of Ketchum Pleon, a leading European public relations consultancy and part of global public relations agency Ketchum. The programme offers local artists the opportunity to show their work in an art gallery established in Ketchum Pleon's London office, located at 35-41 Folgate Street. To date, [email protected] Pleon has showcased a number of famed British artists, including works by one of the U.K.'s leading linocut artists Paul Catherall, as well Karin Gunnarsson (photographer), John Lee Bird (artist), Gail Mallatratt (printer), Andy Whale (photographer), Monica Curtin (photographer), Tom Frost (illustrator) and Stephen Rothwell (artist).

"We are so pleased to host the creative talents of Danny Flynn and Derek Ridgers," said David Gallagher, senior partner and president, Ketchum Pleon, and CEO of Ketchum Pleon London. "This inspiring series of prints provides a great opportunity to foster creative thinking amongst Ketchum Pleon employees, and open our doors to the larger London community to support these talented local artists."

Danny Flynn's 'Every Bodies Enemies' exhibition may be viewed weekdays from 10.00am - 5.00pm from 25 March to 14 May 2010 at Ketchum Pleon London, 35-41 Folgate Street, London, E1 6BX. A "meet the artist" event is scheduled for 6-8pm on Thursday, 25 March 2010.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
