BottleShop: Bermondsey Omnipollo Charity Art Auction
If you have visited BottleShop:Bermondsey recently you may have admired one of the striking prints hanging from our ceiling. But these aren't any old prints, these are Omnipollo prints! Each print is part of a limited run of 10 and is signed by Omnipollo's creative mastermind Karl Grandin. They depict the iconic beer labels for Nebuchadnezzar, Hypnopompa, Zodiak and Erzulie.
Running alongside Omnipollo week at BottleShop:Bermondsey we are auctioning off the prints on our e-bay account, the auction will run for a week and once they are gone they are gone, we will miss them sorely. As soon as we have got them on e-bay (fingers crossed Wednesday 27th at the latest) we shall tweet the link and update the blog so you can start the bidding frenzy.
The prints are rather impressive, some would even say Hypnopompa is quite eye-catching. They measure a mighty 70 x 50cm and are pigment printed on 340 G German Etching. To back up these credentials they have their own individual white paper plaque, pretty snazzy!
You can view the artwork in person at our Bermondsey bar whilst enjoying an Omnipollo slushie with a CrossTown doughnut for good measure, some people have described The Arch as rivalling the Tate Modern (no one has said this...yet). Whether you're a fan of the brewery, Karl, good art or World Class beer there are lots of reasons why you would want to own one if not all of these prints, like our Website Manager Charlotte who dreams of a pub themed living room!
All funds raised are being donated to a charity chosen by Omnipollo Light House Relief, who offer much needed support and relief to refugees on the Greek Isle of Levos and at the Ritsona Refugee camp. Founded by a small group of volunteers in 2015 it is an essential life line, a beacon for those fleeing worn torn countries in the Middle East. They focus on supporting women, children and youths who have been left in limbo by the closure of boarders. You can read more about the charity by visiting their website
