In May 2017, I had the privilege of hosting my first ever solo art Exhibition at the Workshop bar in Melbourne.
As luck would have it, the Workshop found my Instagram account and reached out to me to see if I would like to exhibit at their bar. An exhibition was always something I had been meaning to do. I just thought it would happen later on. Seizing the opportunity, I decided to go for it. I was pleased that they liked my visual glitches and experimentations.
I accepted the offer. The challenge was to ensure that my digital images could be repurposed for print. I found an amazing vector scaling program called ON1 Resize and was able to get the right resolution for giclee printing with minimal image quality loss.
I chose a set of images I liked, scaled them to A3 and sent them off to the printers. I received some lovely giclee prints in the mail, framed them up, then took them to the Workshop for hanging.
I had a cool opening night on May 8th and a bunch of friends came along. The Workshop even gave me some free beers. So all up, it was an exciting experience and I’m happy to have had my first exhibition. More to come I’m sure.
