Manchester Art Fair

2019 was the first year Lazerian exhibited at the Manchester Art Fair. As one of the UK’s most ambitious art shows selling modern & contemporary paintings, sculpture, photography and editioned prints it was a honour to be a part of it.

Showcasing several new prints and sculptural pieces including Black Rose Shark and the Cigarette Mickey.

The fair is held over 2 days as well as a VIP preview evening. Numerous visitors came to visit the Lazerian stand to admire the limited edition prints that were created especially for the exhibition.

The locations of the photography prints that were displayed in the show were all Manchester based.

The fluorescent orange 3D cardboard sculptures that appeared in the limited edition prints were positioned in Manchester landmarks such as Mancunian Way and Castlefield.

Other sculptures featured within the photography print collection were the pink cardboard shark (that was photographed at Crompton Moor) and the illuminate yellow shark model (photographed at Moore’s Hat Factory in Denton, the mill where the Lazerian workshop is situated)
