An internationally-renowned artist will host an exhibition for the very first time at the University of Worcester.

Worcester's own Rob Draper will display some of his works from a diverse career that has seen him involved with projects for The Golden Globes, Nike, and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

His exhibition, ‘Work, Dreams, Wi-Fi’ opens on Friday, July 12, and runs until Friday, August 16 at the University of Worcester’s Art House on Castle Street.

Visitors can expect a true recreation of Draper’s creative studio, opening up a rare opportunity to step into the artist's world and see his art through his eyes.

Draper said: "This all really started with unexpected redundancy from my dream job which was relocating.

"With little opportunity or money, I began to draw on disposable coffee cups as a way to both motivate myself and act as a showcase for what I could do for a brand or product."

He added: "The cups went viral and while it’s not necessarily been smooth sailing, the work has been such a journey, and it will be great to see that journey visually all in one place."

The exhibition aims to attract anyone with an interest in art, design, or creativity.

Draper has a following of 228,000 on Instagram.

The artist is no stranger to the university, having led a team of students in producing a 55-metre mural at Severn Campus on the walkway between Hardwicke Close and Hylton Road in the city.

He said: "I have been working with the University since late last year and the staff and students are great to work with so it felt like a natural fit when I was asked if I would be interested in a show."

The artist further added: "The energy and creativity I have got from the staff and students have taken me right back to how I felt as an art student many years ago, and the vast space at The Art House really allows us to play and experiment with the space and it will hopefully make for a distinctive show."

The exhibition at The Art House on Castle Street will be open between 10 and 3pm each day, excluding weekends.
