What is a Gig Poster?
Gig posters, or concert posters, are limited edition prints created by graphic artists to commemorate a particular musical event, gig, or tour. They are often silkscreen printed (screen printed) and usually signed and numbered, making for unique and collectible pieces of art.
What is the UKPA?
The UKPA is an organising body and web resource set up to promote the UK gig poster scene, with a focus on limited edition, screen printed works. The UK possesses a vast wealth of talent within the field of gig poster design that finds its roots in both the concert posters of Britain’s musical past as well its contemporary American counterparts. As the scene continues to grow this side of the pond, UKPA hopes to offer help and information about those working within it, how clients can go about commissioning work, as well as promoting and supporting exhibitions of these artists.
