As New Zealand's leading printer of fence wrap, what an ideal project it was to produce these artworks for displaying in the community. The designs were produced by the very creative students from two schools in The East Frame, a project being run by Ōtākaro as part of the recovery plan. Read more to see what it is all about.
On the 22nd March there will be an artwork auction fundraising for a young kidney disease sufferer Maddie Collins. We reproduced Christopher's Lion artwork from an original piece.
We 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.
The Christchurch Art Gallery might be closed, but that doesn't mean nothing is happening. One exhibition is Populate! It's about celebrating the Gallery's 10th birthday and it's about artwork in public spaces. Our involvement has been producing murals on buildings including these two examples. In their words...
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...
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.
Here are a few shots of this job we recently completed on the Central Library Peterborough window. It's by renowned New Zealand artist Richard Killeen, and is part of the Christchurch Art Gallery Outer Spaces programme. We printed the image on translucent vinyl so it will be enhanced by the light from within the library.
