Duncan MacAskill Pin Portraits

The artist with pin portrait of his father

The Pin Portraits were originally commissioned by the Royal Opera House as part of DELOITTES IGNITE 11 at the Royal Opera House on 2, 3 & 4 September 2011 and will hang for a year in the Link/Box Office.

For the 3 day event Duncan had an Installation of the Pin Studio in the Supper Rooms where he finished the Pin Portrait of Wayne McGregor. Using over a quarter of a million drawing pins, it took 6 weeks. The 2 Pin Portraits are 300cms x 300cms.

Duncan MacAskill was artist in residence at Toynbe Studios from 2005-2007 during the refurbishment of the building, Mapping Artsadmin is exhibited throughout the building.
