Overview

30 square metres of digital printed glass with sandblast etching. With Slimline LED light-boxes.

Goals

Housed within an old Victorian Art Gallery just off Regent Street. The artwork has responded to the diverse and varied history of the building. This being mainly abstract but including many references to the buildings history as an art gallery and the first electric cinema in London.

Process

The architects gave me a brief to simply brighten the space up in any way possible. A bold composition is clearly visible from the street with an engaging amount of detail to be read on the glass whilst waiting for the lifts.
