Graphic artist, Jon Tatham, has brought his trademark flair to the world of fell running by teaming up with The Bollington Brewing Co. to create the artwork for a limited edition series of 3 Peaks Fell Race ales.
In honour of the annual fell race organised by Andy Skelhorn on 14th May (the only one of its kind to start and finish from a brewery), Jon will be exhibiting work inspired by the theme of fell running at The Vale Inn, Bollington.
A seasoned fell runner and talented artist, Jon’s work is grounded in print and design, taking some inspiration from the street art scene, which is evident in his typographical and abstract works.
His exhibition includes an array of different artwork: gicleé prints, painted canvasses and mixed media collages, blending traditional and contemporary ideas in the presentation styles. He has included some reference to local fell races as well as some abstract creations related to the sport.
The Bollington Brewery, as co-creator of the 3 Peaks Fell Race, has developed three special brews under its 3 Peaks series – Nab Head, Kerridge and White Nancy – which will released over the next four weeks. One of the signature series will be bottled and available on the day at the brewery.
Commenting on the artwork for the ales created by Bollington Brewery, Jon said: Having run around the race route area many times, there is a particular blue hue to the sky that reminds me of the Bollington hills. The summit markers are used in the design for each label and I’ve gone for a fresh look to set it apart from traditional pump clip designs.”
Lee Wainwright, owner of The Bollngton Brewing Co. added: “We’ve always been huge advocates of Jon’s work and his distinctive style. As an experienced fell runner and well known artist, we felt the collaboration was a great natural fit and we look forward to showcasing his work at The Vale Inn over the coming weeks.”
