Galapon has created individual works with Hellovon, Pomme Chan and James Dawe, in a bid to combine his own fascination with geometric shapes with each illustrator’s particular aesthetic.
‘Each collaboration is a separate project with that artist’, says Galapon, ‘Although, having said that, from what we’ve seen so far there seems to be a visual theme of hard-edged lines mixed with organic flowing forms, which I guess is a reflection of my thinking and each of theirs.’
The T.E.A.M. exhibition, at London’s Kemistry Gallery, will feature screenprints and risoprints of the work, as well as a collection of silk scarves, cushions and handkerchiefs.
Melvin Galapon: T.E.A.M. Together Everyone Achieves More, is at Kemistry Gallery, 43 Charlotte Road, London EC2, from 16 August-1 September.
