The Waiting Room - MELVIN GALAPON

For the third chair of The Waiting Room, DR.ME were extremely proud to present Melvin Galapon who made the long trip up from London with around 15 pieces of work which all ranged from between A0 and A1 in size. The work was amazing and really challenged the viewer using a lot of lines and dots to create an unusual and fascinating collection of work. At around 4PM Melvin took up the ink and silkscreen and set about smashing Nous Vous's impressive record of 52 screen prints (Melvin did 74). To finish off the day our good friends Dutch Uncles finished off the day with an amazing acoustic set of six songs including a fantastic cover of Talking Heads' Naive Melody. After everything was packed away DR.ME went for a pint in our favourite local Common with Melvin and some exciting plans were formed, more information on this will follow soon!
Next month DR.ME are very excited to be welcoming Luke Best, a talented illustrator from London who will be coming up and doing some live screen printing and exhibiting some of his wonderful work.

Massive thanks to Adam Brandon for the excellent photographic skills throughout the day.
