It's Child's Play

Posted by Daryl on 9 March 2016

IMG MM Playground 7We love doing murals, so when we were approached to reproduce artworks designed by Christchurch school kids, naturally we wanted to be part of the production. It would be fair to say murals are one of our specialties and outdoor murals are a bit rarer than their more common indoor counterparts. Keeping in mind we were dealing with exposure to mother nature we came up with the right product for the job and our attention to detail saw the project turn out a stunner.

der Rainbow Magic

Posted by Scott on 30 May 2012


New Zealand artist Judy Millar has been exhibiting more of her oversized works. Her latest exhibition is titled The Rainbow Loop. We worked with Judy and Bruce Edgar, where we did the printing portion of her work. This exhibition is still currently running at Museum gegenstandsfreier Kunst in Otterndorf, Germany, finishing on the 26th of June 2012. Unlike previous work where we printed digital versions of Judy's hand painted work, this time round it's a true interaction of paint and ink. We get a real buzz doing this type of work which gives us a change of scenery from advertising and commercial imaging. Here are some official words about this exhibition...

Myriorama

Posted by Scott on 17 December 2010

We like a good challenge, and this one is no exception. The very clever Bruce Edgar came to us with a project he was working on for local Christchurch artist Julia Morison. The piece was to be exhibited at the Sydney Biennale 2010. The catch was it involved a massive amount of panels, intricate detail and it had to be accurate. After a series of tests we were ready to print. It was displayed in the Sydney Opera House... see details below.

Posted by Scott on 26 May 2010

Artists Canvas                             If your'e looking for a stretched canvas, you might be pleased to know you have a couple of options. It's well known that artists canvas can be printed and then stretched onto a frame. What is less commonly known is the fact you can shoot down to your local stationery store, purchase a pre-stretched canvas, bring it to Adgraphix and we can print your image directly to it. There are benefits to each process and it's not a case of one type fits all. See the images below for expanations of the two techniques
