The Spring season at the Saatchi & Saatchi gallery in Parnell beings today with the opening of “Girl Comics”, an exhibit of Ralphi’s work.
“I’m really excited to be showcasing my work at the Saatchi & Saatchi Gallery - I never thought my first ever exhibition would be of this scale, and to fill it with comics is fairly nerve-racking. The show has provided me with the push I needed to clear the backlog of ideas from my head and finally get them out on paper and in front of people,’ says Ralphi.
"My comics are drawn from my own experiences and those of my friends, who serve as my unwitting muses. Common themes of friendship, cosmic voyages, and everyday human and animal truths are impatiently inked and laced with a dark wit. I love reading comics and I hope guests to the exhibit will enjoy reading mine,” adds the artist.
The exhibition will run from 29 August until 10 October.
