    About the Artwork

    London 2012 commissioned twelve leading contemporary artists to create the official posters for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. No longer in print and with only a few copies left in stock, these premium-quality posters, printed in the UK on 200gsm FSC paper, are likely to become sought-after collectors items.

    Anthea Hamilton creates narrative environments through sculptural assemblage and collage. Her work in part is informed by the history of physical prowess and representations of the human, especially female, body. In Divers the poised legs seem to capture a gymnastic pose or show, perhaps a synchronised swimmer diver holding a balletic position.

    Interestingly, the only Olympic sport exclusively contested by women is synchronised swimming. Divers evokes the engaging theatricality of synchronised swimming, perhaps the most artistically challenging sport of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
