    Mexico-based print service provider, Moti Digital 3D printed a towering, head-turning skeleton for the Mexican Festival of Light celebrations in Guadalajara.

    The four-day event explores how light and art work in perfect harmony and encapsulates the culture of Guadalajara. Moti Digital used its Massivit 1800 3D Printing Solution to create a model that would ‘wow’ visitors to the event and demonstrate the impressive capabilities of large format 3D printing technology.

    Measuring at 8.40m (27.52ft) long and 3.60m (11.8ft) tall, the breath-taking skeleton was produced in just four days. The painted skeleton was positioned inside thePlaza Tapatía fountain pool and illuminated at night, where thousands of festival-goers were able to sit in its arms.The experience generated huge amounts of conversation and photos that featured prominently across social media platforms.

    The lifelike skeleton will also feature at this year’s Festival del Día de los Muertos, taking place throughout Mexico from the 31st October.

    Street artists from near and afar will gather in Brisbane from 31 March to 15 April to transform walls into canvases and redefine the way people engage with public art during Brisbane Street Art Festival (BSAF) 2018.

    Brisbane’s annual street art festival returns for its third year with its biggest program yet. More than 50 Australian and international artists will create 50 large scale murals in South Brisbane, Spring Hill, Fortitude Valley, Paddington, Annerley and Brisbane’s CBD – double the number of murals created in 2017.

    Notable works will transform Fish Lane, a Telstra Exchange Building, Ric’s Bar and Brisbane Powerhouse thanks to spaces provided by partners ARIA Property Group, Brisbane City Council (BCC), Brisbane Powerhouse, Ric’s and Telstra.

    For BSAF 2018, festival organisers have curated street art masters from Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, England, Colombia and Mexico to join leading Australian artists such as Sofles, Gus Eagleton, Fuzeillear, Emmanuel Moore, The Brightsiders, Sindy Sinn, Shida and Sirmano, many who hail from Brisbane.

    Colombian artist Gris One will join Hong Kong’s self-taught street art queen Bao Ho, Mexican calligraphy specialist Said Dokins, Malaysian artists Kenji Chai and Cloakwork, London geometric guru Rosie Wood and Indonesian artist Tuyuloveme to paint their first ever works in Australia.

    Festival Director Lincoln Savage said street art is helping redefine the city of Brisbane.

    “The program is bigger and better and signals Brisbane’s creative potential, we encourage all locals and visitors to come out during BSAF to see new artworks created before their eyes,” said Mr Savage

    “This year seven international artists are joining us for the festival, including six who have chosen to paint their first Australian work in Brisbane, which speaks volumes about our ability to attract great artists and the recognition the international community has for our burgeoning street art culture.”

    Festival organisers have been working closely with Alethea Beetson, director of Digi Youth Arts, to ensure the program supports and nurtures Indigenous artists and the murals reflect stories of their people. Mexican artist Said Dokins will paint a large mural on the Telstra Exchange building in Spring Hill, lending his style of street calligraphy to a piece focusing on keeping Indigenous languages alive.

    Brisbane art duo Land Writers, known individually as Warraba Weatherall and Daniel Jones, will also make their mark on the city, transforming the laneway at 181 George Street with what will be a moving piece.

    Led by Indigenous artists Dylan Mooney, Tori-Jay Mordey and Kiana Larkins, nine artists will gather to create temporary artworks on the QPAC Cultural Forecourt as part of Festival 2018, the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games’ statewide free arts and cultural program. The artists will work together to create works that celebrate Brisbane and pave the way for a shared vision of the future.

    Another highlight of BSAF will be Within These Walls, a major one-month long exhibition featuring works of all shapes and sizes from 50 local and international artists at Brisbane Powerhouse, opening on Thursday 12 April.

    Cezary Stulgis will also team up with Australian street art legend Benjamin Reeve for a momentous return to paint a new mural on the Brisbane Powerhouse. Cezary last graced the building’s walls over 20 years ago before it was transformed into the building it is today, with two of his works on the building now heritage protected artworks.

    BSAF also provides an important platform for emerging artists. This year BCC has provided four city-owned public walls as canvasses, two of which will be painted by artists involved in the BCC Youth Art development program, which links emerging talent with industry veterans.

    The festival will kick off bang on Sunday 1 April with a free launch party at Ric’s in Fortitude Valley. Brisbane veterans Drapl and Treazy will paint a mural in the bar’s backyard area and live music will be provided by The Gametes, FeelsClub, Desmond Cheese and YELLOWCATREDCAT. The launch will also see the resurrection of Scribble Slam, a live art battle between two artists, Bao Ho and Sunshine Coast artist EJ Zyla. Each artist will create a work focused on a theme that is revealed on the night, with one artist to be crowned the winner. Scribble Scram will be a monthly event at Ric’s with a rotating lineup of artists.

    The new boat – spotted covered in vibrant camouflage at the BAR testing facilities – will establish a whole new class of yacht. The mid-30ft craft will bring speed, efficiency and new technology while remaining true to Princess’ core with high quality materials, comfort, seakeeping, craftsmanship and design that will stand the test of time.

    While specific information on the boat isn’t yet available, it was spotted in Portsmouth in ‘dazzle camouflage’ – an eye-catching pattern designed to confuse the eye and disguise the yacht’s features. The bold camouflage seen in the spy photos of the development test boat was created by Katie Sheppard from the Plymouth College of Art, who was among 20 students on the BA Printed Textile Design and Surface Pattern course that competed to design a new version of Dazzle for Princess on this exciting project as part of their curriculum.

    Dazzle was originally conceived of by Norman Wilkinson for early 19th century Naval vessels, featuring a specific geometric pattern that confused rather than concealed. These original dazzle camouflaged Royal Naval vessels were created in Plymouth – at the very same site where Princess creates its award-winning luxury yachts today.

    05 January 2018


    The Cadbury’s World Theme Park in Birmingham, England is reminiscent of Willie Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. The large format digital printing specialists at PressOn were commissioned by RMA Themed Attractions to create the Park’s interactive and completely immersive 4D zone.

    PressOn representatives describe, “The Park features a 4D interactive cinema experience, the Chocolate Adventure takes visitors on an adventure where they can experience the feeling of diving into a pot of melted Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate, riding the Crunchie Rollercoaster and taking to the skies in a Cadbury Crème Egg airship, piloted by the Caramel Bunny of course.”

    The proposed graphics, featured on both the interior and exterior, required longevity, with a potential lifespan of 5-7 years. Additionally, the proposed materials needed to comply with fire regulations, as PressOn explains, “Fire ratings on all materials were critical to meet Cadbury’s stringent requirements.”

    The representatives further describe, “We clad the area in 8mm marine plywood and then attached 3mm Dibond aluminum composite material to it. Using our HP LX 3000 we printed the over 16,000 square feet of Class O fire-rated vinyl to ensure the one hour fire rating required on the project.”

    Interestingly, the team utilised a floor vinyl graphic system on the walls to further increase its potential shelf life and added an anti-scratch laminate to the graphics. The project took a total of eight weeks to complete with PressOn completing some artwork in-house like the project’s “crumpled wrapper” graphic.

    With any large format program, PressOn did overcome some challenges explaining, “The installation is in an area of extremely heavy traffic, with both parents and children touching and interacting with the 4D Chocolate Adventure experience.”

    Cadbury’s Advertising Operations Manager had a glowing review of PressOn stating, “On site we all breathed a sigh of relief when PressOn’s ‘blue and yellow’ vans arrived. We knew that the job would get done, the paper would be in order, and we would all hit our deadlines.”

    With Cadbury’s signature purple and yellow color palette, the Park offers a captivating experience for the whole family. As the second largest confectionery brand in the world, Cadbury is a globally recognized brand. The Cadbury’s World Theme Park is a perfect representative of their slogan, “Taste Like This Feels,” offering more than a candy bar and instead creating an experience.

    It is a giant leap from historical times in ancient Egypt to the 21st century. Océ – A Canon Company, is bridging the two eras by recreating parts of the tomb of Seti I. Seti I was a pharaoh in the nineteenth Dynasty. Océ elevated printing technology was used to create exact reconstructions of the tomb’s high relief walls, pillars and sarcophagus.

    Océ worked closely with the Factum Foundation for Digital Technology in Conservation. Together, they printed large molds to create the reconstructions and adapted Océ’s elevated printing technology to print reliefs up to 15 mm high. Another partner, Factum Arte, used the Océ prints to create the final panels and sarcophagus for the exhibition in the AntikenMuseum in Basel, Switzerland.

    The high accuracy level offered by Océ’s elevated printing technology faithfully produced the surface of the painted walls from the tomb of Seti I. The technology transforms images in high-resolution 3D digital files into physical objects. It prints scanned data on a scale and at a resolution that exceeds any other currently existing elevated printing technology.

    “It is great work,” says Enrique Esteban, team leader of Factum Arte. “This exhibition and Océ have been fundamental to making it all possible.”

    Reconstruction of our cultural heritage is just one of the many applications made possible by Océ elevated printing technology. It is also applied to reproduce paintings of Dutch Masters, such as Rembrandt, Van Gogh and Vermeer, to produce elevated maps and braille signage for the visually impaired, to produce elevated artwork and interior decorations for the home and office, and to create branded marketing items, such as printed emblems for football teams and sport clubs.

    Elevated printing is just one example of how Océ is printing the world in whole new ways.
