This event has ended.

Diesel Art Gallery presents the first collaborative artwork between leading London-based make-up artist Ayami Nishimura and renowned British photographer Rankin. The exhibition showcases over 20 prints selected from their photography book “Ayami Nishimura by Rankin” as well as a video piece to accompany the book.

The concept for their collaborative project is 'Cyber'. Ayami has developed many different ideas based on this theme: "Cyber for me is a fusion of techno, virtual reality, digital, POP art, vivid colours, neon and hyper nature. I use many materials, colours and textures to create my ideas and I have set myself no rules or limits as to what I can create. My aim for each image is to make something bright, fun and full of ideas. Each image is telling you its own story." The models in various shades of bright make up were then photographed by Rankin.

The book “Ayami Nishimura by Rankin” and other exhibition souvenirs will be available to purchase during the show at Diesel Art Gallery.
