    We recently hosted acclaimed artist Dan Hillier in our Brighton Gallery for the release of his debut box set ‘Six Women’. Following on from the success of our previous ‘Meet The Artist’ events including Joe Webb, Magnus Gjoen and Sir Peter Blake, we had a packed out gallery for the evening as hoards of Hillier fans, followers and friends filled out our Bond Street space. Dan Hillier is well known for creating surreal, often monochromatic works that are comprised of traditional Victorian illustrations, etchings and engravings. The artist layers up the found imagery to form radical new compositions, adding a fresh aesthetic that links surrealism with neo-Victoriana. Hillier shot to fame in 2014 after creating the album cover for local Brit award winning band Royal Blood’s eponymous debut release. The image used, ‘Pachamama’, has been revamped in the new box set, appealing to those who missed out when it was initially released as a signed limited edition print. The ‘Six Women- Box Set’ is made up of six of giclee prints on 305gsm Hahnemühle Photo Rag Ultra Paper, from an edition of 100, with each print hand finished with exquisite and delicate gold leaf. The set was available for a special release price on the night, with many fans taking full advantage of the offer. Presented in a bespoke archival display box ‘Six Women’ presents the opportunity to own a beautiful and affordable set of prints by one of our most sought after artists. The set has been hugely popular and there are only a few still available, so contact the gallery to avoid missing out! We have a number of Dan Hillier editions available online and a few of his box sets at our Brighton gallery: Call 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com. $test =

    Now that our online gift shop has launched at artrepublic, we’re here to take the pain out of Christmas shopping and put a little of the fun back in. Our gift shop has been expertly curated to give you a carefully hand selected range of the very best and - to make it even simpler - we’ve broken our favourite pieces down into bitesize categories: for him, for her, for the kids - the list goes one. This week, we take a look at 5 of our faves available ‘For Her’… - Kristjana S Williams Icelandic born artist Kristjana S Williams is the queen of stunning, feminine print-making. Her vibrantly coloured works tap into the imaginary, depicting exquisite landscapes, creatures, flora and fauna, in the most expressive of styles. ‘Fjolublatt Pall’ creates a magical butterfly, collaged together from a multitude of different butterfly wings. Other-worldly and breathtakingly beautiful, Williams’ print will capture her imagination on Christmas morning. 'Framed Three Pin Ups - Dusty Pink’ - Cassandra Yap Want to inject a little naughtiness into your gift to her this year? Cassandra Yap’s ‘Framed Three Pin Ups - Dusty Pink’ is the perfect way to blend contemporary art, femininity and kinky fun. Three, soft pink feathers sit within a frame, each one depicting an erotic pin-up girl in Yap’s unique, illustrative style. Merging beauty with sensuality, Yap’s mixed media piece makes the perfect gift for that very special someone... ‘Framed Cranberry Blue Butterfly’ - Lene Bladbjerg Love Yap’s mixed media approach but not buying with erotica in mind? Lene Bladbjerg’s beautiful, jewell-like butterflies are striking and innovative, ideal for the lady who loves both art and nature. Bladbjerg has created the wings of a butterfly from two razor blades, carefully painting meticulous detail by hand. For ‘Cranberry Blue Butterfly’, Bladbjerg has captured the extraordinary shade of the butterfly wings, adding texture in the soft veins and black borders. An original, one-off piece of art, ‘Framed Cranberry Blue Butterfly’ makes for a timeless gift, that she’s sure to adore. ‘Reflection 24ct Gold Leaf Polaroid Collage’ - Andrew Millar Andrew Millar’s work is ideal for the girl with a strong sense of style, a love of photography and a passion for beauty. ‘Reflection 24ct Gold Leaf Polaroid Collage’ depicts a polaroid image of a woman in vintage, Japanese style, her hair adorned with butterfly and bird’s wings. The small polaroid has been covered with hand-laid gold leaf and mounted onto an expanse of white for striking composition. A truly special piece, Millar’s magical print is suffused with charm and character - a perfect Christmas gift. ‘Temptation’ - Sara Pope With a background in fashion and beauty, it’s no surprise that the work of Sara Pope appeals to feminine sensibilities. Known for her powerful prints of luscious lips, Pope’s pieces are on the nice side of naughty: beautiful but with a sensuous twist. ‘Temptation’ depicts a pair of glossy, pink lips, with streaks of paint coursing down the canvas for texture and dynamism. Alluring and vibrant, ‘Temptation’ is the Christmas gift for your best friend - best exchanged over cocktails…! Just a selection of some of our favourites, be sure to head to the gift shop to see the full range of suggestions ‘For Her’, as well as all of our other categories! And don't forget, if you still want to give the gift of art but haven’t found the print that you just know is right, you can purchase gift vouchers from us for as little as £10.     $test =

    Our gift shop has launched! And just in time for the festive season… At artrepublic, we think that art is the best gift you can give - pick the right piece and it becomes a treasure, a special symbol of friendship or love, that they’ll keep forever. Picking the piece, though, isn’t always easy. It can be hard to trawl through volumes of prints, without that specific something in mind. Fortunately, at artrepublic, our gift shop has been expertly curated to give you a carefully hand selected range of the very best. And to make things even simpler, we’ve broken down the selection of our favourite pieces into bitesize categories. So whether you’re looking for him or for her, for the kids, or with a budget in mind, we’ve got it covered. Christmas shopping just got creative… Here’s a peek at some of the pieces we’ve chosen for you. To see the full range, don’t forget to head to the gift shop. For Her: ‘Making a Bee-Line’, by sought after contemporary artist Louise McNaught, is one of our favourite pieces at artrepublic, with its innovative approach to found materials and its aptitude for colour and compositional technique. Both eye-catching and conceptually provocative, while brimming with charm and a little tongue-in-cheek frivolity, ‘Making a Bee-Line’ is the perfect piece for her, whether she’s art lover or novice. For Him: Contemporary artist Dave White is known for his exceptional animal prints, which have won him widespread acclaim across the art world. We defy anyone not to adore his magnificent ‘Lion’ print. Rich in detail and brimming with texture, White brings the figurative and the abstract into perfect union, reworking the raw energy of Abstract Expressionism - with dynamic paint splatters, drips and strokes - into stunning representation. This is contemporary print making at its best - and he’s sure to fall in love with it. For Kids: ‘I am not a bunny’, by Simone Lia, makes the perfect Christmas gift for the kids. Both boys and girls will love the cute-sy aesthetic, and it’s a great introduction to contemporary art: although Lia is indulging in a naive charm, her work is carefully tuned to the power of minimalist composition and the role of humour in modern art. Just make sure you do hand it over to the kids on Christmas day - the temptation to keep this one for the grown-ups is all too great… Limited Editions Under 100: At artrepublic we specialise in limited edition prints by well known artists, each one hand signed and dated. It’s also important to us that these pieces are affordable and accessible, so we've put together a range of beautiful limited edition prints that come in at under £100. ‘Proud Trooper’ by contemporary illustrator Richard Berner is from a limited edition of just 50 and is available for only £85. Bold, bright and beautiful, Berner’s print is oozing aesthetic charm - the perfect gift on a budget. Still concerned about the risk of investing in that beautiful piece of art and it being just not quite right? We completely understand - which is why you can purchase gift vouchers from us for as little as £10. With 12 months to redeem them, your special someone will have the wonderful experience of exploring our extensive catalogue of originals, limited editions and prints by contemporary and historical artists. We also have a fantastic range of art books for sale, if you're looking for stocking fillers - a great way to give art without the price tag! Visit our gift shop $test =

    For our latest artist interview we had the pleasure of talking to the godfather of Pop Art Sir Peter Blake, as he told us about his life as an artist and New Brighton inspired box set. What are some of the things you love about Brighton? As a kid I would go on days out with Dartford Football Club, on Sunday's they would send a coach out and we would go all around the coast. When my children were young we'd come down to Brighton about once a month. I love the rock shops and the pier. I really enjoyed the antique shops; I've bought some great things from there over the years. One of your new prints in the Brighton box set is reminiscent of your 'Homage To Rauschenberg' collection… That one is part of an on-going series called memories of place. When going to an interesting place I set myself a rule of whatever I pick up I've got to use in a collage, the second rule is I can't add anything. As I'm picking these objects I'm kind of designing how they'll look. Brighton was the first one I did; there were four little objects that recalled a rock, a lighthouse, a sail and a rainbow, all quite by chance. I'm still working on that series. Why did you choose to use Brighton icon Max Miller in your print? He's one of my heroes. He was a musical entertainer and the top comic of his time. When I was at the Royal College I wrote my thesis on Paul Raymond talking about nudity in the musicals. As it happened the music halls were closing, Max Miller always played the last week. I saw him play about five last weeks and he's just a great Brighton character. I'm a patron of the Max Miller fan club. We went to an auction where I bought a pair of his shoes and walking stick. He also made it onto the cover of Sgt. Pepper's. You are many peoples artistic hero, who are some of your own personal heroes? Kurt Schwitters is one. A lot of old masters like Velasquez. For more current heroes I'd say David Hockney and Damien Hirst, who I think is a fantastic artist. Hirst was a big fan of Schwitters. When Damien was a student he discovered an old house where someone had recently died and it had just been closed up as it was, he went in and made lots of collages out of the stuff there, which is quite similar to my 'memories of place'. There was a quote from you where you said if Hirst lost his fortune you think he'd simply return to his artistic roots... I think his work is about money, but he's not that interested in being very rich. He's interested in what being rich can do and the work comments on money. If he lost it all I think he would just go off and paint; there have been a couple of times when he's done that. You're known as the Godfather of British Pop Art, which artists would you regard as some of your 'Godchildren', those who are carrying on the conversations you began? I think initially that second generation in a way were a link through. I was at the Royal College from 53-56; in 1959 was the group with Derek Boshier and Ron Kitaj, I think that generation was the next link and then eventually with the YBAs there were parallels. There was no one directly doing what I was doing but the links are there. If you could go back and give your 14-year-old self some advice before you started Gravesend Art School what would it be? It was an odd circumstance to go to that art school. I got an interview to go to Gravesend Technical School, and at the interview they said if you'd like to go to the art school, which was part of the technical school, you could pop round the corner and take a drawing exam. I've always said it was at 14 but I found a report recently and I was actually 13 when I went to the junior art department. My advice has always been to work hard, to get advice and to learn. To seek out the help of the tutors and find out what you want to learn. If you had the opportunity to put another person into your famous album cover for The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's who would you choose? Probably Chuck Berry. The piece wasn't in fact a collage at the time, it was built life sized like a stage set. People thought that I had sat and cut out the people from photographs and stuck them down, but in actual fact the whole production had taken a couple of weeks to make. When I look back The Beatles probably put an embargo on other musicians because there are very few on there, I think we slipped in a little girl saying "I like The Rolling Stones". Finally, apart from Sgt. Pepper's what other piece from your career would you like to be remembered for? There are key things over the years, and it changes. I think 'Self Portrait With Badges' and 'Toy Shop' were both key pictures, along with 'On The Balcony'. For the other record covers probably the one for Brian Wilson is one I'm most pleased with. There's a story where I was doing an interview being asked another Sgt. Pepper's question, I got a bit fed up and said 'I wish I did the cover for The Beach Boys 'Pet Sounds' instead of Sgt. Pepper's'. Apparently Brian Wilson's people heard and about it came back to me and said 'did you mean that?' It was my big ambition to do a cover for Brian Wilson and when I did the cover for 'Getting In Over My Head' I was really pleased with it. Peter Blake's latest Brighton Box Set & Rainbow Target are available at our Bond Street gallery.
