The long wait is over as Counter Editions has finally released the official limited edition prints for Team GB at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. The eight leading contemporary artists including Tracey Emin, Anne Hardy, Howard Hodgkin, Sarah Jones, Eddie Peake, Benjamin Senior, David Shrigley, and Sam Taylor-Johnson have created stunning posters in celebration of Rio de Janeiro and Brazil, with the spirit of Team GB as their inspiration.
Soaking up the Olympic spirit needn’t be complex. These posters have been created with an effort to communicate the artists’s visions of the meeting point between art and sport. These 8 limited-edition prints are available to buy exclusively from Counter Editions.
Prints and posters have been commissioned for each of the Games since 1912. Building upon a relationship that started in 2012 with Counter Editions creating the Official Prints for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, Counter Editions has gone on to produce the official prints for Team GB at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, and the Baku 2015 European Games.
