Destroy Meanwhile the Black Rat Press in London will be staging a major retrospective featuring new works as well as iconic images all tracing the history of Blek’s career. "Every time I think I've painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek Le Rat has done it as well. Only twenty years earlier." Banksy, 2005 Blek Le Rat (Xavier Prou) was born in Paris in 1951. He is a grand master of street art, and considered by many to be the originator of stencil graffiti. Blek has been adorning the streets of Paris with his hugely original and intelligent artwork since the early eighties, and he has been a massive influence on today’s graffiti and guerrilla art movements.

  • The Peter Kennard print Downing St. tried to ban, now at artrepublic

    Press Release 10th April, 2008 Destroy Sold out in most other UK galleries, Peter Kennard and Cat Picton Phillips’ politically charged Photo Op is just in at artrepublic, purveyor of fine rare prints and limited editions from the raw underbelly of the British urban art scene. The shot appeared in many daily newspapers and on Channel 4 News after London paper the Evening Standard reported that Downing Street tried to ban it. Photomontagist Peter Kennard and collaborator Cat Picton Phillips are the unofficial war photojournalists of our time. Producing politically charged images that capture the zeitgeist of the moment, Photo Op is a much sought-after raw interpretation of a difficult period in UK politics during the ‘war on terror’. Kennard and Picton-Phillips have taken the shot of the last Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair taking a photo of himself with a mobile phone camera - originally in front of a group of students - and set his smiling pose against a fiery backdrop of a burning oil field.  The result is an arresting piece of art, a visual representation of anti-war sentiment taking the original innocence of a moment and ruthlessly subjugating it to question the reliability of media information and the portrayal of politicians and their celebrity amidst such incredible devastation.  ENDS Peter Kennard Biography Born in London in 1949, Peter Kennard’s work hangs in the Tate, V&A, Imperial War Museum and the Science Museum in London. He is a Senior Tutor in Photography at the Royal College of Art and his work is internationally known. His work directly addresses his concerns with conflict, war, weapons, liberty and the environment. His anti-Iraq war images were central to the Santa’s Ghetto exhibition in London, 2006 and both he and Cat Picton Phillips were part of the Santa’s Ghetto in Bethlehem, 2007 which raised nearly $1,000,000 for 30 university places for children from the area as well as the Wi’am Project helping the community.
