Artist's description:

School Prints revives a groundbreaking scheme set up in the 1940s to supply original, high-quality contemporary art to primary schools. Six British artists – Martin Creed, Jeremy Deller, Anthea Hamilton, Helen Marten, Haroon Mirza and Rose Wylie – have been invited to create limited edition prints that will be given to the Wakefield primary schools taking part in the scheme.

To coincide with the exhibition, we are delighted to offer for sale a series of the limited edition prints, kindly donated by the artists. All profits raised by the sales of the prints will fund a full engagement programme with the participating schools.

'Everyone is born an artist. That is to say that we all draw from an early age. The act of drawing is both an attempt to understand the world we inhabit and a way of imagining what the world might be. Like artists, theoretical physicists continue this process throughout their adulthood. My print is a homage to that idea and particularly to the work of Garrett Lisi, who created the complex and elegant piece of geometry that aims to map all the known fundamental particles along with possible undiscovered ones. A variation of this pattern is depicted alongside a trompe l’œil image of a photovoltaic panel – a modern device capable of converting photons to energy.' - Haroon Mirza
