Stylish pop art of the Hayward Gallery Brutalism, the concrete Brutalist arts venue on London’s South Bank. This print highlights the futuristic Brutalist architecture of the sculptural exhibition buildings.
Opened in 1968 by Her Majesty The Queen, the first exhibition at the Hayward Gallery featured a major retrospective of the paintings of Henri Matisse. A prime example of Brutalist architecture, the minimal and functional aesthetic of the concrete structures, along with the National Theatre, has become an iconic feature of London’s landscape.
Designed by lead architect Norman Engleback and assisted by John Attenborough, Alan Waterhouse, Dennis Crompton, Ron Herron, and Warren Chalk, the futuristic Brutalism cemented the Southbank complex of arts & music venues as the cultural heart of London.
The Hayward Gallery has staged some of the most important solo art shows by artists including Antony Gormley, Tracey Emin, Martin Creed, Bridget Riley, Bill Brandt, Frank Stella, Mark Rothko, Lucian Freud and Diane Arbus.
Closed in 2015 for a two-year programme of sympathetic restoration, Hayward Gallery and the neighbouring Queen Elizabeth Hall will be reopening in 2018.
Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note black frame is not included, for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.
Part of the South Bank pop art collection, this print features Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books) along with graphic blocks of colour.
