Photos hold incredible power. They allow us to relive cherished moments in a tangible and impactful way. In a world of oversaturation of screen-time, Panelpop endeavours to rekindle the power of a physical memory you can hold in your hands. When Tony Knoll stumbled upon the materials he would one day wield into Panelpop, it was originally no more than a way of saving money on art materials. What he describes as a ‘happy accident’ evolved into an item that is now loved and cherished by many.
Many artists think that paper is the cheapest material to work off – and it may well be until you frame it. This can waste precious time and resources spent on finding the right frame to enhance your piece and complement its surroundings. Panelpop works just like paper but hangs like a canvas – with stunning results, every time.
Established in 2001, we have seen countless people walk in the door and out with a unique gift or keepsake to enjoy forever. Nestled in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne’s CBD, our quaint art gallery creates a personalised service and a unique experience.
Pop in, send us your photo, pick your frame, grab a coffee nearby and in no time your brand new, custom-made picture frame will be ready. Utilising a variety of reborn materials, such as timber, stone and polystyrene – Panelpop pictures are like no other.
