Imagination in Space launches American Dreams, a New York City art pop up at 14 Warren St., southeast of Regent’s Park. American Dreams features signed originals and prints from America’s most creative illustrators. Our artists are young, ambitious and proven, creating private commissions for Fortune 500 CEOS and work for Angry Birds, The New Yorker, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Tate Modern, Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and Miike Snow. Imagination in Space artists are a new generation who see the whole world as their canvas. Canvas, paper, newspaper, tour bus, storyboard, doesn’t matter. These illustrators attack every medium, including social where they’ve attracted almost a quarter-million followers.

For ten days in October, Imagination in Space brings their original work to London. The American Dreams opening night is Thursday, Oct 17 (7-10pm), and we’ll follow up with a life auction on Tuesday, Oct 19 (8pm).

American Dreams artists include Sam Spratt (Angry Birds, Mike Snow, Wiz Khalifa), Adam Turnbull (Grooveshark, Harvard Business Review, Businessweek), Wendy MacNaughton (New York Times, Wall St. Journal, NPR), Rich Tu (Alfa Romeo, Bombay Sapphire Gin, New Yorker), Yazmany Arboleda (Tate Modern, Afghani Minister of Culture, Akiyoshidai), Cameron R. Neilson (Forbes, Marriot, Starwoods), Alex Eben Meyer (Businessweek, Wall Street Journal, New York Times), Soosan Joon (Vince Camuto, Cortez Groupe), Erik Maniscalco (British Gas, Oxygen Network, Octagon Marketing), Carlos Ancalmo (Google, Barbarian Group, Cornerstone), Aaron Frisby and Ryan Keeley (Kendrick Lamar, Red Bull).
