" My shows are packed with visual information. Light is the ultimate medium to stimulate and exhilarate an audience "
Rupert Newman MA (RCA)
British-born artist Rupert Newman transforms spaces into visual spectacles that leave audiences in awe. From unforgettable wedding shows, personalised private parties and PR stunts his projections are tailor made and often synchronised with music, bringing events to life through meaningful experiences.
During his time at The Royal College of Art (Printed Textiles 2010), Newman transformed series of wall hangings by projecting light effects onto them. He soon realised that this technique (projection mapping) could work with any object, art or architecture to alter its appearance. Since then Newman has travelled the world illuminating impressive venues from The Guildhall in London, to the Olympic Ski Jump in Cortina.
