Student International Small Print Show Egypt

I’ve been selected as a featured artist for this snappily-titled student exhibition in Egypt. It’s a 12 month show held in conjunction with the international art conference at El Minia university.

Two of my prints have been included; ‘Alyssa’ and ‘13.01’, both are examples of experimental photo-etching techniques I’ve been exploring.

Alyssa -Photoetching- 2012. Ben Partrige Small International print show

Alyssa – Photo-etching – 2012

13.01- Photo Etching – 2011
Hats off to Wael A.Sabour for making such a huge project a reality, assistant professor at El Minia he’s an interesting artist in his own right.
I am really chuffed to be included in the show, which features 90 students from 17 countries (I think I’m the only one from the UK; representing!) especially as the quality of the work is so high, here are some of my personal faves…
