Epson – students create works of art using digital technology

Epson UK has participated in the recent annual exhibition at the Royal Academy when final year students held an exhibition to showcase their unique artworks, several of which were inspired and created using Epson large format printers and projectors.

The on-site Epson Digital Suite, housed within the Royal Academy Schools’ historic studio spaces, provides students with the opportunity to experiment and create their works with the latest Epson digital imaging technology available.

The longest-running independent art school in Britain, the RA Schools is the only art school to offer a three year postgraduate fine art course charging no fees. The final year exhibition provides visitors with a rare chance to view exceptional pieces by a new generation of artists in an historic venue. The finished artworks span a range of media from painting to photography, sculpture, digital print and film.

All 17 students worked with Epson technology at some time during their three years at the Schools and it featured strongly in several students’ work at the show this year.
