Paul Smith store hosts pencil exhibition
The Paul Smith store in London¬ís Albemarle Street is hosting a charity project where photographs of pencils owned by famous people are exhibited in the store.
The "Secret Life of the Pencil" exhibition aims to showcase the continued use of pencils in an increasingly digital world and how they are used by the world's leading artists, architects, writers and designers.
Contributors to the project have been drawn from across the creative industries and visitors to the exhibition will be able to view pencils from the likes of Sir Quentin Blake, Tom Dixon, Stephen Fry, Mike Leigh, Philippe Stark and Paul Smith himself.
Running until 3 June, the exhibition will feature every photograph in the series. The brainchild of product designer Alex Hammond and photographer Mike Tinney, the project will raise funds for the Children in Crisis charity.
Visitors can support the project by buying posters and limited edition prints from the series. Specially produced framed prints will also be available for auction online via Paddle8.
