In 2015 a group of New Zealand artists, who celebrate the craft of hand painted typography, got together and put on an awesome exhibition in Wellington.
I was so stoked to be asked to be part of this group in 2015, and even more so to bring it back for another round in 2019. The talented Larissa McMillian was an organising machine getting everything and everyone together for another exhibition.
In recent years the global visual arts community has witnessed a renaissance in the art of hand-lettering and signage. On home-shores, these artists work to pay homage to this near-forgotten art-form as they create quality original stylings of the alphabet, surpassing that which can be replicated with digital printing and vinyl.

The line up of artists was epic, and I am always so happy to be included in this list. I pulled together two new original artworks, working from our kitchen table, a big change to last year when I had my own studio. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it down to Wellington for the closing party, which, like always, looked super fun!
