Artform stages a ‘15 MINUTES OF FAME’- POP-UP PORTRAITURE event. Artform tutors, renown for portraiture will, as part of Imagine Festival, offer to sketch in the beautiful space of Central Arts Waterford fast portraits of passers-by using transient medium of charcoal on newsprint.

As fast portraits of ‘common’ Waterford people come off the easels throughout the day, they will be exhibited and gradually cover the walls of the Central Arts space, forming a Pop-up portraiture exhibition. The show will be inaugurated at the conclusion of the day on Saturday evening, where sitters, their friends and families will be invited to come for refreshments and to collect their portraits.

Artform’ s ‘15 MINUTES OF FAME’ – POP-UP PORTRAITURE EVENT FOR IMAGINE will be held in collaboration with Zsolt Basti and Salvatore of Lucan, two successful young artists, respectively graduates of IADT and NCAD, currently living and working in Dublin.

Both artists have exhibited with prestigious galleries – Zsolt is currently represented by the Hang Tough Contemporary, Dublin. They have each had their work included in private and public collections both in Ireland and abroad and have been awarded multiple residencies and awards such as Salvatore’s awarding of the 2021 Zurich Portrait Prize.
