“Type is like the air: we need it to live and don’t notice it… until someone farts” – Fabio Maag

This typography-focused exhibition celebrates the art of making language visible and highlights the use of type and sign writing in a metropolitan society. With hundreds of fonts available at anyone’s fingertips, knowledge and appreciation for the process in how lettering is formed needs to be prioritized and understood.

With each draft, a new problem is solved and new ideas explored, allowing a simple idea to blossom into something magic. It is an immersive and nourishing process that allows creatives to think with more than their heads, but through their hands and body.

Following the success of her recent hand-lettering workshop, Alicia Mcfadzean aka Cheeky Observer will be showcasing her lastest works as well as some of her old favourites. Joining her will be the prolific Keith Vlahakis and Danielle Albertyn.

Exhibition Opening:
Thursday 14 September 2017, 6pm
