Starting in London in 2000, Don’t Panic packs became increasingly popular not only for their arts and culture information, but also for their highly collectable Posters.
Distributed in many cities hot spots, it provided a launch pad for emerging and established artists like Andrew Rae, Banksy, Pentagram, Lucy McLauchlan, Eine, Elliot Thoburn, Paul Insect, David Shrigley, Jon Burgerman, Stanley Donwood and many more.
Curated by Leon Martyn, ‘Wild Fantasies’ features an exhibition of 50 of the most important Posters distributed through the Don’t Panic packs.
In addition ten new screenprints have been created to celebrate each year of the Don’t Panic Poster : D*Face, Word To Mother, Mr Jago, C215, Holly Wales, Shepard Fairey (litho print), Lucas Price, Pure Evil, Mudwig, and James Joyce.
