The works of Rupert Newman (B.1984) is inspired by the Russian Rayonists, the Constructivists and Suprematists whose primary concern was to paint light and create space within composition. Rupert’s work is derived from the ideology of Robert Delaunay that “what is of great important to me, is observation of the movement of colors.” He works with highly exclusive party planners, luxury brands and individuals to produce bespoke and highly original content used to transform architecture and objects into unique dynamic platforms for digital display.
Rupert graduated with an MA in Textile Design from The Royal College of Art in 2010 after having completed a BA Hons from University College, Falmouth.
Rupert’s work explores the interaction between the static and the projected moving image. With projection mapping techniques and a distinct visual language, he creates unusual illusions of depth and space challenging the viewers perception. By fusing digital display with physical textures, Rupert’s work aims to interfere with what is virtual and what is real.
Newman’s prints, paintings and fabric designs are also sold to buyers and collectors worldwide. He sells fashion prints to clients including Giorgio Armani, Custo, and GAP. Rupert also produces bespoke light shows for events. His clients include The Royal Society of Arts, Dom Perignon, Chequers, Glass Magazine, Exeter College Oxford, AMV BBDO and First Data Merchant Solutions.
