Limited Screen Print and Photography Exhibition

Friday 23 May to Sunday 25 May, from 10.30am-1.30pm and 2.30pm-7.00pm.

George Hajian reveals his première collection of limited edition screen prints and photographs, which draw on his life and work in New Zealand as well as his passion for creative media.

As an Armenian born in Lebanon, New Zealand has been a place of exploration and discovery for George. As a place of opportunity, Wellington has opened new experiences and possibilities, both emotional and psychological, that have literally changed his life.

This 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.

All featured screen-prints are for sale, you are also welcome to just come and have a look. There are nine different prints, limited to ten copies of each, all designed, produced, printed and signed by the artist.
