BEACH INSPIRED EXHIBITION! | PLAYA DESIGNS

http://www.thistlehall.org.nz/img/gallery/2012/nov19.jpgOPENING: 6pm Monday 12 November.
OPEN: 9.30am - 6pm Tuesday - Sunday

Ronal Villalobos is the founder of Playa Designs, and the creator and designer of a range of unique driftwood sculptures, mosaics, drawings and artwork. Ronal draws his inspiration from the coast, the beach, his native Chile and new home, Wellington. In Spanish, "playa" means beach. Each and every artwork Ronal designs is original; handmade from recycled, natural materials sourced regularly from Wellington's beaches. "My work comes from what I see in each piece of driftwood, shell or glass. I look at what the sea has gifted and the piece begins to take shape," says Ronal.

Migrating from Chile in 2005, Ronal says much of his artwork has been inspired by New Zealand and its beaches. "I originally started creating these pieces about eight years ago, always gathering materials from the beach in my village. Then when I came to New Zealand I continued my artwork, but my new environment took my work in a new direction."

http://www.thistlehall.org.nz/img/gallery/2012/nov19-3.jpgCreator of over 200 individual pieces of artwork to date, most of Ronal's sculptures are made from driftwood, stone, shells, and sea glass. He has worked on this collection for a number of years and this is his inaugural exhibition.

"l have wanted to exhibit my artwork to the public for quite some time and hope people will enjoy seeing my work as much as I've enjoyed creating it." Ronal's one-off designs are available for purchase and commissions are welcome.
