Merab is a Georgian artist painter leaving in Brussels. He participates in various group exhibitions. He work around the idea of shadows. According to Merab, shadows shape, provoke tensions, disturb tonalities and give depths that would otherwise be missed.
Merab exhibits in the Venise Biennale and wanted to have a physical element to show, offer or sale to potential clients.I had quite free hands for the graphic designs aspects.
I started to design the general layout of the catalogue based on the idea of scale showing one painting per spread a reduction and a detail to capture as best as possible his work. Then I proposed 2 covers using his paintings as background image and 1 more graphic, also a spread page with chosen colors matching his compositions and paintings.
We produced 500 copies of the 22*22cm catalogue choosing the paper carefully with Merab and the print of ce from the Munken Rough Paper collection.The cover has been pushed to reveal the name of Merab.
