British designer Bernard Lodge, best known for his work designing the early Doctor Who title sequences, has been chosen to design the artwork for this year’s Artists Open Houses Festival.
Bernard designed the first four series logos and the first five title sequences for Dr Who before going on to work on the effects for Ridley Scott’s Alien and Bladerunner, one of the first people to work on designing computer effects.
Since then he has moved to more traditional art forms and now creates bright and bold woodcuts from his studio near Brighton. Bernard will be exhibiting some of his woodcut prints, along with last year’s Artists Open Houses Artist of the Year winner Tony Bowen at The Old Market in Hove and at the Salon Des Sources in Hove.
The 2015 Artists Open Houses festival will take place in Brighton, Hove and beyond over the four weekends of May, starting May 2. It is the largest event of its kind in the UK, with approximately 200 houses and studio spaces across the city opening their doors to exhibit the work of over 1,000 artists and makers.
