City centre office showcases student artwork

30 January 2018

Photographs by recent MA Creative Practice graduate Mel Dewey, have gone on display at 5 Wellington Place.

This is the third in a series of student installations at the office development, which houses companies including Willis Towers Watson, Ward Hadaway and MEPC.

The winning pieces were all created as part of a Leeds Arts University competition allowing students to explore their creativity whilst taking inspiration from Leeds and the surrounding area. The latest piece is by MA Creative Practice graduate Mel Dewey, who has presented a series of analogue photographs named: Leeds Nostalgia.

MA graduate Mel Dewey, said:

“I absolutely love living in Leeds and the brief given to us by MEPC allowed me to capture the ever-changing city in a positive, vibrant and colourful way, using my own style. The competition offered a great opportunity to exhibit in an alternative space, and also gives people chance to enjoy art in their lunch hour, something which you typically don’t get to experience.”

James Dipple, CEO of MEPC, also commented:

“The reception for the previous installations has been an incredibly positive one, and I’m confident that this will continue from those lucky enough to experience the artwork first hand. The pieces each capture a different angle of this brilliant city, and we’re pleased to be a part of it.”

The installation, made up of six photographs, will hang in pride of place in the main reception for the next three months and visitors are welcome to come and view the piece during business hours, Monday to Friday.
