JAMFACTORY - FROM THE FACTORY FLOOR. SOLO EXHIBITION

Gavin Strange aka JAMFACTORY will be opening his very first solo show 'FROM THE FACTORY FLOOR' at HANGFIRE on December 4th
The show will be a vibrant insight into Gavin's World, exhibiting a selection of his personal work from prints and pixels to vinyl toys and skateboards.

Gavin is a digital designer for Aardman animation, working on various digital projects including apps, games and websites. Gavin has also been heavily involved in Gromit Unleashed and Shaun in the City, where his skills as a digital designer have been channeled 'offline' with the opportunity to create his own Gromit

Gavin also works under the allias 'JAMFACTORY'. This is where he can drive his own design ambitions, in a multitude of diciplines, from short films, documentaries, photography, vinyl toys, goofy graphics nad pixel art to name a few! in 2015 Gavin has written and designed his own book, which will be published by Do Book Co later in the year.

This show is a first for HANGFIRE, since we have existed we have never presented such a design driven show, with so many different design diciplines, created by one person. 'FROM THE FACTORY FLOOR' will be a colourful, vibrant and energetic exhibit of work and we look forward in seeing you at the preview.

A massive thank you to all the visitors, family and friends that came to look at Gavin's, bright, fun, silly, cleaver and inspiring collection of work. Everything from prints to tattoos, mugs to sweaters...and everything in between.

It was great to see so many smiling faces, people just soaked up the vibe. The show contained large to small prints, all hand signed editions of 1 (yes, just 1...and they come framed!), an LED panel which cycled through lot's of Gavin's moving GIF pixel art, this was nestled between 4 small square pixel prints, all mounted on a faux grass backdrop. A small 'Kids Gallery' was incorporated into the main show, this included artwork hung just so the little one's could see it at their eye level!

The upper level contained all the merchandise. Vinyl toys, mugs, drumsticks, temporary tattoo's, sweatshirts and pin badges, oh and the mulled Cider. Photographic pieces of Gavin's friends and family where on display to show a more intricate side to the designers life, outside of the 'factory'. Lastly a large projection of Gavin's films was displayed on the back wall, showing clips from BOIKZMOID (Gavin's fixie documentary) and our ICARUS_13 project (which Gavin so beautifully filmed in back in 2013).

This exhibition is a real treat, and if you were lucky enough to make the preview, we have tried to keep the same buzz and energy that it created, throughout the duration of the show. We are keeping 'FACTORY FLOOR' up at HANGFIRE until January 10th 2016, so make sure you try and pop by to see it.

For those of you that have'nt had the opportunity to pass by, all the artwork is uploaded here [FACTORY FLOOR - ARTWORK] or take a gander at some of the photo's below.

Special shouts to Curtis for the preview and gallery snaps and our of course our sponsors; Think Image and Ripe Digital
