During the Easter holidays , I had the chance to go check out a self-funded exhibition by the 21 year old illustrator Design Butler who is also from Ravensbourne University. The art exhibition took place on Brick Lane in Shoreditch where all the creatives go seeking for inspiration ( I say good choice of location).The project titled REPLICA showcased a series of illustrations of beautiful women who he’s majorly inspired by , 20 casted white cans and NMD Adidas shoes that was made out of concrete.
What caught my eye about the exhibition besides the stunning illustrations was the abundance of white , the floor , the ceiling and the walls. As soon as you get inside the door of the exhibition, the floor was filled with white balloons which ended up flooding a part of the street and luckily the staff were there to rescue them. When I was walking through the balloons ,I felt like a child again but had the fear of being the first one to pop the balloon.
People had the chance to meet Tej Adenuga (Design Butler ), ask him any questions and also take pictures. Overall, this was a fun and inspirational exhibition for me as young person. I felt like the world was my oyster and i could do anything after seeing his success. Check out his work on instagram and also the collection is now available to purchase.
I vlogged the experience if you want to check that out:) the video is below. Thanks guys.
