Secret 7" exhibition

Secret 7 exhibition 2020 at Now Gallery, Greenwich, London

For the past decade the Secret 7" exhibition and auction has been a landmark event for UK illustrators and designers.

The format involves 700 selected record sleeves that are exhibited and auctioned for charity, this year raising £134,000 for Choose Love, a charity in benefit of refugees and displaced people.

2020 was set to be the final year of Secret 7", and as a long-term fan I was absolutely delighted to have a sleeve design selected, and to be exhibited alongside such brilliant artists as Lubaina Himid, Anish Kapoor and Morag Myerscough.

My sleeve honours the track Toast by the young Jamaican artist Koffee. The design takes inspiration from the t-shirt worn by Koffee in the music video, manipulted with a sound wave to create an abstract pattern.
