Dready has finally found a home of his own, with the largest collection of his work in one place.
The Caribbean character created by artist Shane Aquart is now a permanent feature in Picture This photo studio, Camana Bay. Dozens of the doodlings adorn the walls of the studio’s specially created Dreadyworld Gallery.
“The gallery provides a condensed presence for Dready work,” says Bouke Maddock of Picture This. “In total we have over 75 of Shane’s pieces up on the walls.”
This means the gallery has the most Dreadys in one spot.
“Picture This had spare space,” says Shane. “One chat led to another and that led to a gallery in the space.”
While the studio regularly displays its own photographers’ work, this is the first time an entire area has been dedicated to a single artist.
“Having worked with Shane for a number of years through printing and stretching canvases, and framing his artwork, we built up a strong relationship,” says Bouke. “As his artwork collection grew, we saw a potential to assist Shane in displaying as many pieces as we could for him.”
