Louis Vuitton Bond Street Boutique Displays British Artists' Olympic Designs

London was used as an inspiration for the artwork, which reflects the key values of the games: respect, excellence, friendship, courage, equality and determination.

Louis Vuitton

In celebration of London hosting this year's Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Louis Vuitton store on the city's Bond Street will exhibit a collection of specially commissioned prints by British artists.

The exhibition begins on July 9 and ends on September 11 at 160 New Bond Street.

Since 1912, each city that hosts the Olympics has selected one or more posters to celebrate the Games. This year, a large group of twelve artists were chosen by the commissioning panel.

The artists responded to the commission's request to use London as a source of inspiration, while interpreting the key values of the Olympics and Paralympics: respect, excellence, friendship, courage, equality and determination.

The artists include Bob and Robert Smith, Sam Morris, Anthea Hamilton, Bridget Riley, Fiona Banner, Martin Creed, Rachel Whiteread, Michael Craig-Martin, Gary Hume, Tracey Emin,  Chris Ofili, and Howard Hodgkin
