Are you looking to be inspired by striking pieces of art? Is your imagination yearning to discover a whole new exciting world? Then look no further than Supergraph: Australia’s awe-inspiring graphic art fair that will enrich your imagination with its unique and thought-provoking works of art.

Supergraph defines ‘funky’ with its innovative designs, prints and illustrations. These pieces of artwork incorporate bright and unusual colours, eccentric depictions of people, animals and objects, along with witty catchphrases that accentuate the purpose behind their creations. Supergraph showcases the brilliant works of both new and emerging artists, providing a colourful variety that draws all sorts of different people; from the conservative to the more radical minded bunch.

Prepare yourself to be awed by artists such as Tobias Guttman (creator of the ‘Analogue portrait machine’), Kara Baldwin (presenting ‘A Load of Pollocks’), Peter Cromer and Laura Blythman (Collaborators of ‘Enemies Yay!’), Sarah Beetson (her illustrations have been featured in collaborations with Jean Paul Gaultier and Stella McCartney) and of course, Supergraph’s creative director Mikala Tai, who will be expanding the horizons of graphic art by presenting some of Supergraph’s most unique and talented artists.

The unconventional essence that emanates from some of these artists does challenge the norms, and the meanings behind their work are usually multi-faceted and intriguing; they will tempt you to unravel their hidden messages. Each portrait tells a story and reflects the artist’s own intentions for creating that piece; it portrays their perspective and unique imprint of expression. Their creations will definitely enlighten your perspective of graphic design and its influence on our evolving society.

I haven’t even revealed the best part yet: these artworks cater to all budgets, and they start from just thirty dollars! That’s right; this three day festival of fun will get your creative juices flowing and allow you to reap its rewards afterwards.

Behind the scenes, Supergraph emphasises on the important value of teamwork through workshops and artist directed masterclasses, which are fast-paced and exciting since people can interact over their love for graphic art. Experts such as Sarah Beetson and Kiyita Palatsas provide you with techniques to channel your inner artist so that voila! You have your very own masterpiece that you can take home and treasure for years to come!

Supergraph also spices things up through family events and an opening night party; this is held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton, from the 13th until the 15th of February 2015. There are activities such as ‘Superplates’, ‘The Drawing Olympics’, ‘So You Think You Can Draw’, ‘Craft Singles’ (and more) that provide you with the chance to work your magic! A little friendly competition is always fun, and even kids can show us all what they’re made of through masterclasses such as ‘Put A Bird On It’ and ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’. So be sure not to miss all the excitement: Supergraph is definitely worthwhile to check out, and you’ll be able to enjoy it with like-minded people who appreciate the value of graphic art.
