GRAPHIC ARTS PRINTS & POSTERS
One of Australia’s most revered and recognised graphic artists and art educators across exhibitions, social impact designs and printmaking is gearing up for a long-awaited exhibition in Kiama - one of the NSW South Coast’s most endearing seaside townships.
Wollongong born and bred, Gregor can claim 35 years of experience as a design & art educator with a self-developed practice in social impact design, printmaking and community engagement, coupled and committed to teachings in the Graphic Design program, Faculty of Law, Humanities & Arts, at the University of Wollongong.
Gregor is no stranger to artistic works along the South Coast, having held his first solo exhibition in Kiama in 2016 that featured his "Geotec" editioned archival inkjet prints.
WorkLife is hosting this exhibition as part of the longstanding Kiama Jazz & Blues Festival from March 6 to 8.
Gregor, who lives in Kiama with his wife Tania and son Carlo, is the creator of the Festival’s highly sought-after posters, having a long history of commitment to designed exhibitions, created communication products and for co-authoring publications for the Migration Heritage Project (MHP) - a not-for-profit organization that researches, records and promotes the significance of migrant experience, settlement and heritage in Wollongong.
His large-scale public work commissions for the Southern Regions Roads & Traffic Authority have been lauded along with his highly regarded graphics system for safety mesh screens for road and pedestrian bridges in the Illawarra region.
Gregor’s graphic art practice is also documented in the National Gallery of Australia publication and his poster art is held in collections of major regional and national galleries & museums. As a former member of the Cultural Board of Kiama Municipal Council, he is currently exploring options for creative industries and partnerships with Health, Aged Care, Design & Arts.
He continues to create and produce “artist prints” using digital and traditional serigraphy and social impact design for the Illawarra Migration Heritage Project - MHP.
