With the Olympics being held just around the corner, the exhibition is already breaking records with 500 recorded visitors on the opening day and 3000 visitors during the first week. SUPERHEROES runs until Sunday 4th November 2012. Steve May is represented by Arena
Steve May has been working with Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford, East London on their brand new exhibition SUPERHEROES. Steve created the characters, a comic and the environments for the exhibition.
Alphabet City is under threat from a mysterious villain and children are given the task of rescuing it from destruction, with the help of five superhero characters 'A', 'E', 'I', 'O' and 'U' who each have their own superpower. They must crack the code and defeat the evil mastermind 'Y' who is stealing all the vowels. The city they inhabit is purely from Steve’s imagination, he also created an animation to visualise the chase through the city streets in pursuit of the villain.
