"I wanted to get the number 20 in there somewhere, so a racing number popped into my head. Coupled with the funky pigeon dude and retro stylings, it all seemed to fall into place quite well. Everyone loves a racing pigeon - even a cheating one!" --Graham Carter

About the 20 Years Collection
Soma Gallery turned 20 in June 2024 so to mark this momentous occasion we asked 20 artists to produce a limited edition print to commemorate the 20 years. A portfolio of each print from the editions go to the 20 artists, and the final 30 prints are available for sale. You can read more about the project on our blog.
