Invite to Skyscrapers.
As a group Skyscrapers are always looking for the ‘novel’ in exhibiting their ‘naive’ style of art work. MiniSun, a lighting company in Salford, are introducing a new product, called ‘paint-me lampshade’ and have asked the group to be involved in its development, in bringing their unique style to the ‘paint-me lampshades’. We are hoping some of our finished pieces of artwork will be on display in their showroom.Adding to and helping demonstrate the wide creative use of this product.
This arts led project will start in September and we would like like to thank MiniSun.
