I wrote back in 2012 about my view of the then range of posters produced for the London Olympics by 'Fine artists' rather than any British graphic designers, illustrators or photographers. The result was dismal.
Now in 2016 we have another 'fine art' collection of posters, this time for the Rio Olympics. Headed as before by Tracy Emin with the most inept and juvenile piece of work attempting to pass itself off as a poster.
I find it extraordinary that whoever commissioned the above stuff actually believes that it is great work?
You have to go back to 1972 Munich Olympics to see some decent posters.
