With work exhibited globally and included in the most noteworthy permanent collections, such as the Norton and New Britain Museum, Drew Tal has grown to critical acclaim. Captivated by travel and first-hand cultural experiences, Tal has developed a distinctive style through his photographic, digital and mixed media techniques, with a focus on captivating portraits. Printing his work on a variety of materials including handmade paper, canvas, and silk adds to the mystique of his imagery.
His work is also in collections at the Ecole Internationale de New York, the J. Steinbecker collection, the Robbins, Foreman and Gallery Swanstrom collections, as well as the Cooper Gallery collection.
Tal’s upcoming exhibition in Paris, ‘Worlds Apart’, is a collection of works symbolically inspired by the diverse cultures and colorful peoples along the ancient Silk Road. The exhibit will take place at Mark Hachem Gallery, 28 Place des Vosges, Paris from March 20 to April 10, 2015. Opening reception on March 19 from 6:30 to 9:00pm.
Duggal Visual Solutions has partnered with Drew on many of his projects.
In the artist’s own words, “I have been printing my work at Duggal since the very early 90’s when it was a small storefront on 20th street. At the time, I was a beginner fashion photographer and Duggal was the first lab to introduce ‘laser prints’ as an instant, inexpensive way to present my work and my models’ portfolios. Duggal also had all the latest printers to deliver quality, beautiful prints at a reasonable price and personalized service. It has been the case ever since!
Over the last 7 years, my fashion photography evolved into digital art and I can always count on Duggal to offer me the very latest, cutting-edge technology in printing and mounting. My art has been exhibited in many fine art galleries and museums around the world and Duggal is the one source that consistently provides and produces museum quality pieces I am very proud to display.
I must acknowledge and thank Bob Kapoor for his unwavering support and thoughtful advice over the years and praise Ashma Bhulla for her personalized, attentive and friendly service. Ken Bledsoe, printing expert extraordinaire has been especially patient and helpful to me in navigating the sensitive and tricky process of large-scale printing. Mamoon Obaidullah in mounting, an artist himself, has been extraordinarily caring and respectful of my work and in advising the best way it should be mounted. I also have to express special gratitude to Joachim Hackl and John Timem who took the printing of my art book as if it were their own project and spent countless hours refining and perfecting its printing for me.”
