Recently graduating from the Camberwell College of Arts, Gaurab Thakali was crowned It’s Nice That’s 2014 Graduate Print Awards Winner and has already been tapped for this year’s Pick Me Up festival. His final project at Camberwell, ’52nd Street’ is a screen-printed concertina book about the iconic New York district in the 1940s when bebop was taking off. Capturing the atmosphere and spirit of the era with a bold, 3 colour palette, the prints work just as well alone as in the set.
