Aspiring Art Student

Glass is honoured to support a promising up and coming blown glass artist who is currently studying at Plymouth College of Art. We were taken away by the pieces he brought into us which illustrates his passion, inspiration and drive to create one of pieces that will change the lives of many. We wish Renovat all the best and hope this be the start of a very promising future for this aspiring glass artist.

 

Renovat is an African born artist, from a country in the heart of Africa called Burundi. Now he is a British Citizen, who is currently studying at Plymouth College of Art. He is undertaking a BA (Hons) in 3D Design Crafts with a specialisation in glass blowing. He gains a lot of pleasure in designing and creating something new and unique that is influenced by his strong African cultural heritage and nature.

 

Renovat’s aim is to generate profit from his glass work to invest in people’s lives in his birth place, by creating sustainable opportunities and help improve people’s living standards. He has made a start in a small way already, but plans to expand and operate on a larger scale when he is financially viable.

Art2Frame supporting Robert Lenkiewicz exhibition

Art2Frame are proud to support the Robert Lenkiewicz self portrait exhibition currently showcased at Ocean Studio, Royal William Yard, Plymouth until the 2nd May 2016.

It really is a challenge to frame a piece of this size and then to assist with the hanging. There is a lot behind the scenes to frame a piece of this size at 3.4m x 2.7m along with its sister piece.

We continue support to the Lenkiewicz foundation and have available limited edition canvas prints which are framed by Ian at Art2Frame, 23 Southside Street, Barbican. Robert Lenkiewicz -The Painter with Karen (The Dance)
