That’s what this thursday’s Art Sells exhibition is all about. People in adland spreading their creative wings in other ways. Last year Higher Pitch was all about addy women doing stuff in their spare time, like Minky here. This year they’ve opened it up to let men in too, which is nice.
Co-founder of Higher Pitch, Mel Fong-Brown says: “Our belief is that art sells – it has done for centuries. By putting artistic talent at the heart of advertising we believe we can produce truly inspiring and successful creative work. The talent is already there in our industry, we just need to encourage people to embrace it. And that’s what we hope to achieve with this exhibition.”
More than 100 people who work in advertising have submitted. Submissions have come from all over the world including entries from China, Singapore, Brazil, South Africa, Australia, USA and Europe.
As well as all the serious and credible entries from across the globe, my partner in quiche and I (Lol) are exhibiting. We’ve agreed to do some of the catering, by preparing bitesize canape Niche Quiche, for our sins (always wanted to say that, not sure what it really means?)
The Art Sells event will take place for one day only at Village Underground in Shoreditch, East London.
