Huddersfield denim artist Ian Berry had his ‘iclapfor’ artwork displayed on a London public art platform to mark the anniversary of the Clap for Carers campaign.
A series of artworks were displayed on a giant exhibition space on the side of the Flannels fashion store on Oxford Street.
Ian, inspired and assisted by his son Elliott, collaborated with ‘Make it Blue’ along with David Bailey, Keira Knightly and Ringo Starr.
The exhibition, presented by arts curator W1 Curates, was the pinnacle of the #LightItBlue campaign which saw various landmarks illuminated in blue as a gesture of thanks to NHS and healthcare staff. Also illuminated was the Pin Your Thanks project that Ian joined with the ‘iclapfor’ hands turning into a pin badge.
Ian has spent much of the last 12 months seeing his iconic clapping hands artwork projected onto buildings around the UK and overseas.
He said: “I know my son has learned so much from this period and will grow up with enormous admiration for the right people.”
During lockdown Ian spent time recreating his living room in denim.
