Concrete and canvas textures create a sense of an artist studio

Graphic Design

We created a series of textures and tones – to give a sense of an artist studio throughout the exhibition. The colours used to present and background the artworks are made up of a spectrum of six core colours, ranging from grey to brown, plus six additional shifting tones. A further six ‘concrete’ wallpapers then added to the palette of possibility for contextualising the artworks. We used different canvas textures stretched onto frames that were layered against a wallpaper applied directly to the wall, that introduced each theme.
