Is there anything more ignoble than a blue carrier bag? The tenuous sack, beloved of lowly corner shops and off-licences, has now been raised to the level of art form, courtesy of artist Chris Ratcliffe. His exhibition 'The All London Blue Bag Extravaganza' presents fourteen London-themed designs all printed onto this most unlikely of canvases. You can catch the exhibition at the Westbourne Grove Church ArtSpace until 29 June, and purchase a bag online, or by visiting the show. (We wonder whether they give it to you in another plastic bag.)
