We are Play Room - a visual art and illustration collective composed of like-minded artists who met at London’s Camberwell College of Art.
Play is something that never leaves us. As children we negotiate the world through play; our understanding of the world is developed in play. Everyone has had a childhood, whether it was a pleasant one or not. Most people long for this time again. There is a warm nostalgia that envelopes childhood. We yearn to be back there with those magical toys and cubby-houses made of old sheets. Naivety and the child-like freedom have a resonance that evokes these nostalgic feelings in the collective psyche.
It is this sense of playfulness and curiosity that unites each artist and illustrator in the Play Room collective. We are very excited to be taking part in the Thames Festival on 12 &13 September. Our stall will be located near Jubilee Gardens beside the Millennium Eye.
