    From tried and tested classics to some more unusual contemporary pieces, we have compiled a list of 10 great art prints you will want to own in 2012. Uprisings by Kozyndan A new take on the classic print 'The Great Wave of Kanagawa' by Hokusai, this detailed offset print was commissioned for issue 28 of Giant Robot Magazine.  Created by Los Angeles based artists Kozyndan, Uprisings is a combination of the amazing and the bizarre; on closer inspection the sea foam on the crest of the wave is comprised of hundreds of tiny bunnies. Described by Kozyndan as “An homage of sorts to Hokusai with our own furry twist.” Always in England by Prefab77 This silkscreen print of a traditional telephone booth overgrown with plants is a beautiful take on the deterioration of iconic British monuments so frequently chronicled in Prefab77’s work. This creative collective takes inspiration from the punk movement and British patriotism. Le Pingouin by Pablo Picasso This iconic print of Picasso’s Le Pingouin is a classic example of the minimalist elements of his contribution to modern art. The penguin is formed of a single continuous black line, to form a classic understated print which stands the test of time in its simplicity. Warhol on Pepsi by Pakpoom Silaphan A vintage commercial Pepsi sign overlaid with a repeat print of the late great pop artist Andy Warhol. Echoing Warhol’s signature style, Pakpoom creates prints by moving familiar brands from their everyday frame of reference into high art. Pakpoom Silaphan creates original pop art by adding collage and illustration to found vintage advertising signs. Homage to Raushenberg IV by Peter Blake This limited edition print by pop artist Sir Peter Blake is the artist’s personal homage to Robert Rauschenberg, whose work has inspired Blake’s art throughout his career. The tribute includes a nod to Raushenberg’s use of found objects, including vintage postcards and photographs, a fabric coca-cola badge, book covers, a Mickey Mouse board game and an American flag.  The Tree of Life by Gustav Klimt Originally created by the Austrian symbolist painter Gustav Klimt in 1909, the tree of life is part of Klimt’s golden phase. Made up of delicate golden tones and foil embossed, The Tree of Life is an intricately detailed print in which there is little tonal separation between the figures depicted and the tree itself. Cougar by Dave White Dave White’s signed prints have become sought-after collectors’ items worldwide. Cougar appears to capture a moment of intense concentration as the cat stalks its off-canvas prey. Cougar is a giclee print featuring a striking contrast of realist detail and drips of ink. Le Violin D Ingres by Man Ray This iconic image was created by Man Ray in 1924; Le Violin D Ingres is a surrealist take on the classical nude, the figure mirroring that of a stringed instrument. This classic print is immediately recognisable as one of Man Ray’s greatest works.  Pink Blue Heaven by Ben Allen Ben Allen’s Pink Blue Heaven is a composite of graffiti, street, graphic and pop art. Depicting a detailed composition of a monochrome woman overlaid with a swooping bird, with a striking contrast of magenta, red, white and blue layered across the image.  Thinking in a Galaxy Far Far Away by Trafford Parsons Thinking in a Galaxy Far Far Away is sure to be a hit with Star Wars fans; taking inspiration from the film’s iconic Storm Troopers and Rodin’s classic sculpture The Thinker. The result is this superb, quirky limited edition, signed by that artist. artzine your guide to everything that’s happening in the art world $test =

    Sir Peter Blake has recently had the pleasure of designing the new statue for the BRIT Awards 2012.  The famous British Pop artist has given the statue a modern make over, using the three colours of the Union Jack flag turning the BRIT Award statue into a modern trophy for 2012, but one with echoes of the swinging sixties, the decade when Blake first rose to prominence. Blake has created some of the most iconic artwork for album sleeves from The Beatles Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band to Paul Weller’s Stanley Road. View all Peter Blake prints $test =

    Whoever you are buying for whether it’s a treat for yourself or a lovely Christmas present and whatever your budget, there is something to suit everyone.   There is such a wide variety of prints from a huge range of artists that we are sure we can provide you with a beautiful print.  Here’s a few ideas from our best selling prints to inspire you…. What better way to treat a loved one than with a Damien Hirst Butterfly? They are phenomenally beautiful images created by delicate a process of foil blocking to create these wonderfully ethereal creatures The Souls. Four different shaped butterflies have been made in several colour combinations to suit most tastes ranging from subtle and delicate to bold and striking. Each one only an edition of 15 they are great collectors pieces as well as being great eye candy! Please call into Brighton gallery to enquire about colours and edition numbers available., or you can phone us on +44 (0)1273 724829. Magnus Gjoen continues to be popular in the Brighton gallery with his distinctive digital prints of ceramic-like images.  Titian Machine Gun is a powerful print of a gun that appears three-dimensional overlaying the image with a pattern, in this instance a Renaissance masterpiece from Titian. There are also a few remaining prints of the Delft series, Scarab, Machine Gun, Grenade and Grenade Launcher beautifully fresh clean images in the blue and white design traditionally used on ceramics. Photo Opportunity always attracts a lot of attention in the Gallery, people love to guess who and work out why they were papped by the police.  Russell Marshall has taken genuine mug shots of the rich and famous and lined them up in an identity parade. Arrested for drugs, guns, larsony, adultery, drunkenness… you couldn’t get more rock and roll than this lot! It comes in several quirkily named colourways too “Oscar Gold”, “Prison Orange” “Green Room” and “Red Top” Or finally, how about a print from the winning combination of Kozy from Japan and Dan from America that make up Kozyndan. Inspired by classical Japanese landscapes with a generous splash of surrealism makes all of their pieces best sellers for us. In particular the four prints that make up the seasons Uprising, Bunny Blossom, The Bunnies Fall and Grey Hares, are great as individual prints, even better as s set of four!

    We are delighted to say that two of our best-selling artists Sir Peter Blake and Banksy were ranked at number 8 and 9 respectively in a recent survey of the Top 10 British Artists published in the Independent newspaper.  The poll asked 1000 British artists themselves (including Charming Baker) who is the most influential artist is of all time.  The results proved unexpected mostly for the absence of some of the most famous names in the art-world. David Hockney was voted the number 1 followed by:  J.M.W. Turner (2) Grayson Perry (3) Francis Bacon (4) Jack Vettriano (5) Lucian Freud  (6) Thomas Gainsborough (7) Sir Peter Blake (8) Banksy (9) and Stanley Spencer (10). It is interesting that the artist themselves selected 10 artists that are not necessarily the most successful in terms of PR. Surprisingly, artist such as Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin do not feature in the list.  Do you agree with the list or do you think there are other more influential artists who have been missed out?

    Photographer Mario Testino presented Martin Boyce with the £25,000 cheque during a live broadcast of the ceremony on Channel 4 last night.  Creating a landscape in the gallery, Boyce’s works interrogate urban forms along with the history of Modernist design and its working processes.
