Art fairs need not be fussy, and that’s where Supergraph is coming from: less fuss. Focusing on contemporary graphic art and design by a range of leading as well as emerging artists, Supergraph will offer original and limited-edition pieces at very affordable prices.
Visitors will not only be invited to feast their eyes on amazing works exhibited throughout the venue, but they can also get involved in workshops and masterclasses that will flex their creative muscles.
Supergraph has teamed up with The Jacky Winter Group to host a series of masterclasses featuring some of their most brilliant artists. Learn The Art of Collaboration with design duo tin&ed, who will be guiding participants through image-making exercises. Illustrator Kelly Thomson will be teaching Fashion Illustration classes and packaging enthusiast Dawn Tan will lead a class on Pop-Up Painted 3D Packaging.
If you feel like a good scribble session, sit in on the hourly drawing throw-down, ‘So You Think You Can Draw’. Big kids and little kids can also draw, scribble and doodle to their heart’s content at The Mass Drawing Table.
Not content with just displaying works by the artists, Supergraph will also be showcasing the creative process behind the works, so artists in each booth will be actively creating throughout the weekend. Look out for Alice Oehr’s bright prints and tote bags, A Friend of Mine (who created Supergraph's branding and illustrations, above), George Rose’s graffiti-inspired works, illustrations by the Just Cos Collective, The Hungry Workshop’s booth, Trophy Wife Nail Art’s pop-up nail shop and more.
