This year Australia’s Contemporary Graphic Art Fair, SUPERGRAPH (certain to be as diverting as its fluoro-yellow branding) is calling Melbourne’s Royal Exhibition Building home for the first time.
Vibrant designs, prints, and illustrations from leading graphic artists and emerging talent will be showcased.
The three-day event will be sporting major exhibitors including Frankie Magazine, online handmade items/vintage store, Etsy and creative agency, The Jacky Winter Group. Other Booth exhibitors, including painter/illustrator, Anya Brock, and designer, Laura Blythman will inhabit their own creative nooks – sharing the design process with attendees.
The Salon will consist of limited edition, unframed artworks exclusive to SUPERGRAPH for as little as $30. A curated selection of framed works, SUPERGRAPH Picks, will boast a range of designs based around chosen themes.
Fair-goers can attend daily master classes, hourly pictionary-style drawing throw-downs… and remember those plastic plates you designed back in primary school? Yep, you can channel your inner five-year-old. Grab a Texta or Crayola and create a smashing new SUPERplate!
SUPERGRAPH runs from Feb 14-16 at the Royal Exhibition Building. Find out more here www.supergraph.com.au
