D:construct - screen print & photography
23 - 25 May,
Thistle Hall: 293 Cuba St, Te Aro, Wellington
The Alchemist Design and Print present a screen print and photography exhibition by George Hajian in Wellington for 3 days only.
George Hajan, Graphic Designer and Artist, reveals his premiere collection of limited edition screen prints and photographs, which draw on his life, work and passion for creative media. This is an opportunity to see new and varied works using the method of traditional silk-screen printing.
As an Armenian born in Lebanon, New Zealand has been a place of exploration and discovery for this artist. As a place of opportunity, Wellington has opened new experiences and possibilities, both emotional and psychological, that have literally changed his life.
This new exhibition represents a journey of self discovery that marks an end of a stage in his life and the beginning of a new productive period: a deconstruction of one person's lived experiences to reach a place of balance and stability.
"Screen printing is a very hands-on art form, which combines all forms of graphic design", says George. "and this is a very personal journey, I want to let past experiences move out, allowing open space for new experiences to come in".
All featured exhibition pieces are for sale, but you are welcome to just come and have a look. There will be 9 different prints, limited to 10 copies of each, all produced, printed and signed by the artist
