Royal Academy Schools hosted an exhibition recently, to display students’ artwork, which included a large number of pieces produced using Epson's large-format printers and projectors, along with technical support from the manufacturer.

Head of fine art processes, Mark Hampson, says: “Of course these students are digital natives but it is in the manner in which they can adopt various technologies and then adapt or mould it to a creative end that I find inspirational. They have come up with a wide range of art works, from street to screen and across a broad range of media, and the response from visitors to this exceptional standard of creative thinking has been fantastic. Whether using projectors, proofers or printers, students have really benefitted throughout their time at the Royal Schools from having access to Epson products and support.

It is critical that industry and education have a mutual respect and help each other to become better and more experimental. Epson has led the way and the results are stunning

“Students take Epson away from its usual commercial function and use it to showcase unusual and imaginative, creative art of quality and impact. Epson has continuously supported us and invariably company representatives attend the show and see for themselves just how critical their contribution is to taking talented individuals to a new level of competence and insight. It is critical that industry and education have a mutual respect and help each other to become better and more experimental. Epson has led the way and the results are stunning.”
