The first in the series of limited art editions is 'I Tried To Drown My Sorrows, But The Bastards Learned How To Swim', by The Connor Brothers, who have supported the charity since the club opened in October 2013 when they exhibited a series of works in the Dickens room. 'I Tried To Drown My Sorrows, But The Bastards Learned How To Swim' is a playful and irreverent quote, first coined by the artist Frieda Kahlo. The print is part of the Connor Brothers' ongoing Pulp Fiction series, which explores the nature of truth and fiction and recontextualises found material.
