It is here! Finally, the Olympics have come to London! What better way to celebrate these momentous games than with an exhibition of art all dedicated to the Games. Tate Britain is hosting this exhibition of twelve posters, designed by twelve leading contemporary artists.

Ever since 1912 each city to host the Olympics has commissioned at least one poster to celebrate holding the Games, and since the first Paralympics one has been commissioned for that event too. A huge gallery of work has been collected over the years. The pieces above are just two examples of the work available, and as you can see they are vastly different in terms of style and color choice. Bearing in mind there are ten other posters that have similar contrasting effects, it seems only right that you should go and enjoy. With the family, colleagues or work clients, the exhibit will be a treat. Unfortunately the exhibition only displays the twelve London 2012 posters, but they are a sight to behold.
