While Emma McAdam-Marmont and Struan Hopwood were sitting on the banks of the Vltava River in Prague on the 13th of May 2016, solving the problems of the world over beer or two, “Thirteen 05” was born.
After dreaming separately and planning for years together, Emma and Struan both resigned from their advertising and television production jobs in late 2016, to take the leap of faith into the gallery space.
It was the devastating loss of a very dear friend earlier that year that was the catalyst for this life change.
Emma and Struan are two passionate creatives. Struan is from South Africa and Emma was born in New Zealand. The pair live, eat and breathe art and you can find their works displayed at 31 Vincent St, at The Dudley Boutique Hotel, in private collections, online via socials and here.
