Two films showcasing the talents of artists from different continents inspired and entertained in equal measure last night as a group of us went along to the London Premiere of ‘Sign Painters’ and ‘Horn Please’ at the Roxy Bar & Screen. Brought to London by Ghostsigns (AKA Sam Roberts), The Sign Painter Movie celebrated the craft and skill of traditional American sign painters – charting the rise, fall and potential renaissance of the art through interviews with a variety of individual artists working in cities across the USA. ‘Horn Please’ looked at a similar group, focussing on the origins of Indian truck art and its evolution since then. A great double bill, presenting stories of the struggle of traditional arts and crafts in the face of technological progress. See the trailer for ‘Sign Painters’ here.
