Light Graffiti Workshop by Duke Albada at Ignite-NRCG Ballina. Image supplied

A dynamic pop-up ‘light graffiti’ exhibition will adorn the walls of Lennox Head Community Centre (LHCC) foyer during January showcasing the creative works of local youth.

The exhibition presents the works of participants who undertook a creative youth mentorship at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery’s Ignite Studios during December.

The program provided local creative youth with the opportunity to work with internationally recognised artist, Duke Albada, to learn the dynamic creative medium of Light Graffiti.

Running over two sessions, participants created Light Graffiti imagery using a range of different light sources while experimenting with long exposure photography.

‘The mentorship exceeded my expectations so highly, the creative freedom and opportunities with the photographs that we had to explore were ginormous and the end product of all of our photographs was really surprising and beautiful,’ one of the youth participants said.

‘The knowledge that I gained in this mentorship was really useful and there is no doubt that I will use it in the future.

‘A big thank you to Duke, our great mentor, who was patient and positive, encouraging us to produce the best photography we could. It has opened my eyes of the possibilities that a simple camera can have.’

The ‘Light Graffiti’ pop-up exhibition will be installed in the foyer of the Lennox Head Community Centre, 1 Mackney Lane, Lennox Head from Saturday January 18 to February 29.

The launch event will be held this Saturday (January 18) from 2:30 pm to 3:30pm.

All community members are welcome to attend.
