Exhibition organized by DCA (Dundee Contemporary Arts) and in partnership with DC Thomson for the 80st anniversary of two his comics, "The Broons" and "Our Wallie".
The Dundonians is inspired by my previous works about families’ pictures and the comic “The Broons”. I wanted to find a way to involve people and create their own family pictures and/or memories.
According to this though I developed the idea to create the Dundee family.
I created one mural representing my childhood living room. People could take their “family portraits” in front of that and create their memories.
There was an hashtag which is #WeAreDundonians to easly collect all the photos through social platforms.
On the weekend from the 25th the the 27th of November 2016 we put a call for everyone wanted to have a chance to be chosen and be represented in painted portrait done with my style.
With family I dindn’t mean only the canonical family (father, mother and children) but could be the group of students that share a flat, the community of a small neighbour, the group people that work together and so on..
