It's been a privilege to contribute artwork for International Chamber House, Victoria's new hub for international business situated in Exhibition Street in Melbourne's CBD. ICH was officially opened last week by Premier Denis Napthine and Trade Minister, Louise Asher. We were commissioned to source seven large artworks from David's extensive collection of Melbourne photographs. These dynamic and inspiring images of Melbourne and Victoria were chosen to convey just that - a vibrant place to do business. And it is especially nice to know that the work is being well received:
"Hi David, Thanks for all your work getting the artworks installed at International Chamber House. The launch by the Premier took place this morning and the venue looked great. We have had good feedback on the art already. Many thanks for your assistance. Don Richter, Director Marketing, Invest Victoria"
We managed the project from initial costings through to file preparation, production and installation, including two other images sourced by Invest Victoria - a total of nine large works ranging up to 2.3m wide, four traditionally framed and five presented on DiBond Aluminium. The DiBond, which sits very close to the wall, gives a very clean, contemporary look to the larger spaces, and the framed works hang as a series at the entrances to the business chambers. As usual, our "print masters" at CPL Digital did a splendid job (our thanks to Darren, Asko and the team). We've worked together for many years and know we can always rely on them to get everything just right. Framing was done beautifully by Chamtons and all works installed with great care and efficiency by Ellis Art Installation.
