Contemporary art space
So named after Cardiff dock’s storied history of coal soot-tainted water, Blackwater is a modern and contemporary art gallery set overlooking the bay area. Dedicated to supporting and developing the work of both emerging and acclaimed, established artists, with a vision to build a platform and showcase their work internationally.
Opening with a showcase of eighteen curated international artists, Blackwater looks to expand not only the reputations of the artists but also the way in which people see galleries in general. Their ethos is to reach to a broad demographic with exhibits designed to help people realise the availability of quality work. The brief therefore was to develop a distinct visual identity and website that could flex with their space, themes and collections.
