DNA designs is a group of 4 artists- Deborah Newman, LisaLogon, Andrew Dillon & Nadine Fraser
Based in Hampstead, London.DNA designs were established as a specialist decorating team in 1997. Our work included Murals, trompe L'oeils, backdrops and decorative paint finishes including faux-finishes and bespoke original textured finishes
The artists are encouraged to collaborate with each other. Enlisting our diverse artistic genres has led to the development of the Face2Face programme, which incorporates Life-casting, fine art and experimental paint finishes for a target group of 14-16 year olds, where they are encouraged to explore issues of self-esteem and body image whilst decorating their personal cast heads.
The pilot of Face2Face took place in the Summer of 2006 in Camden, London.The pilot was well received by the participants & also by the local council. The support of Camden's Mayor led to Face2Face being exhibited within the Swiss Cottage Library Gallery(17th Nov-30th dec 2006) Future Face2Face programmes are currently being developed alongside both Camden and Fulham's Young Offenders teams.
As a developing social Enterprise, our commercial profit will contribute to supporting our public sector work using the face2Face programme.
The success of Face2Face has led the artists to re-evaluate the commercial sector of our work. Our future work will include life-casting supported by our vast experience as commercial artists being utilised to offer any finish that could be required to finish a cast.
We offer Life casting packages in group / party settings, you can read more details in the life casting and baby sets sections.
We are developing casted products to sell to the general public. The first product to be launched for Valentines day is the 'Kiss-In-A-Box'.
