To celebrate the forthcoming launch of Batman: Arkham Knight, Warner Bros. Games UK has commissioned a group of contemporary artists to have a crack at remodelling Batman's famed costume. From colourful capes to metal masks, the collection is set to be exhibited at Kachette, Shoreditch, London from 23 June - the same day the game swoops onto consoles.
