Our long standing client Ben Bergman of Bergman Gallery asked us to construct the catalogue for one of his most significant artists, Andy Leleisi’uao, whose upcoming survey exhibition was to be held in conjunction with the Auckland Art Fair 2019. The catalogue needed to not only display Andy’s wide and varied works but portray their meaning through the layout and design of the book.
An A5 format was decided upon with fold-out front and back covers to showcase more of Andy’s works and house one of four postcard inserts that comes with each book. Elements of the paintings were extracted or replicated from the images and utilised throughout the pages to create an engaging layout without taking away from the hero art. Ultimo was very proud to partner Ben and Andy in delivering this important piece of print for one of New Zealand’s most highly regarded artists.
