The official posters for the 2012 Olympics have been unveiled. These have all been designed by established and well known UK artists.

When I first saw these posters, I thought “They’re having a laugh!". After my initial reaction, I looked at them again but as an overall package; they do have a cohesive theme. As a themed exhibition in a modern art museum these would feel right at home and perhaps even be well received. Londoners and visitors may just like them although I’m not so sure. However, I’m no artist, so what do I know!

Anyway, here’re the 12 posters that I downloaded from The Guardian:
