Following on from the summer’s successful Shinebright studio, created to nurture and promote young creative talent, glacéau vitaminwater’s exciting new project, the ‘wrapping gallery’ opens its doors to celebrate the work of local artists whilst offering consumers the chance to make sure their special gifts Shinebright this Christmas.
The festive period could always be a little bit brighter and more original – so glacéau vitaminwater is doing away with the dull, uninspiring wrapping paper we are all so used to, and offering the public a one-stop pop-up shop for free hand-made, completely unique wrapping paper that shines with creativity.
With infamous London-based painter and street artist Inkie* at the helm, the wrapping gallery will house 10 emerging artists including Jack Hudson, Lynnie Zulu, Lucy Vigrass and the Day Job collective. The artists will be designing, screenprinting, illustrating, block printing, stamping and stenciling rolls upon rolls of gigantic wrapping paper with their own designs and interpretations of what it means to shine bright.
The space will be a destination for busy shoppers to seek calm and inspiration. A place to have their carefully selected gifts wrapped by professionals in one-off sheets of paper created on-site before their eyes by an array of talented young artists.
Take a step away from the madness of the festive shopping season and treat your special gift to special wrapping paper to make sure that it shines bright beneath the Christmas tree.
Inkie got the festive ball rolling on Saturday 13 December and the gallery is open until 17 December so come down and get a one-off piece of functional art. There will also be the opportunity to win framed and signed works from each artist during the 5 days. To enter just post a photo of your gift and wrapping paper with #Shinebright. Each artist will then choose his or her favourite snap as the winner and Vitaminwater will make sure the framed art is in your hands before Santa starts his rounds.
This event is free and no ticket is needed. Thanks.
