    Jo Peel has released three new stunning quality prints based on her previously sold out series, in aid of the upcoming London Olympics’. The prints titled Trellick Tower "Going for Gold", are available in three Olympic appropriate colours-Gold, Silver and Bronze. The gold edition is printed on 300gsm Fabriano 5 paper, and the Bronze and Silver are both on Fabriano 4.  The original sold out Trellick Tower series saw Jo commissioned to install her Tower artwork as a 3 meter high piece on Tom Conran’s Deli on Portobello road. Jo has also seen her artwork adorn several walls in the West End with her diggers and cranes, including a 20 foot tall painting next to Ladbrooke Grove station. With strong connections to London architecture in Jo’s work, it seems very appropriate for the artist to realise this new Trellick Tower series to commemorate London 2012.   View all Jo Peel prints Exlcusive prints to artrepublic $test =

    artrepublic has the pleasure of introducing an exclusive series of Limited Edition Silkscreen’s from artist Nicolas Ruston, entitled “Queens Head”. The prints are available in Gold (edition of 10), Silver (edition of 10) or Black and White (edition of 50). The edition explores the notion of artificial manipulation and is influenced by the misrepresentation of The Queen in a 2007 documentary trailer for Monarchy: The Royal Family at Work‎. Footage of The Queen was edited in non-chronological order making it appear as though she had stormed out of a photo shoot. Ruston’s work is concerned with collective beliefs and shared verbal and visual narratives in relation to the mass media. He has developed several techniques unique to his practice including scratch-painting which is the medium in which Queens Head has been created. He is creative director of an advertising agency and brings a knowledge and understanding of the mass media into his work. View all Nicolas Ruston prints View all Contemporary Art prints $test =

    One of the world’s biggest art heists for four years saw the theft of Paul Cezanne’s ‘The Boy in the Red Waistcoat', now Serbian Police believe they have recovered it. The impressionists painting is said to be worth at least £68m and was stolen at gunpoint from the Emil Georg Bührle gallery in Zurich in 2008. Experts in Serbia and abroad are yet to verify if the painting found is indeed the original.  Other canvasses were stolen from the gallery, one by Claude Monet and the other by Vincent van Gogh, however these were later recovered from an abandoned car. Potentially the Cezanne has now been found however a painting by Edgar Degas is still officially missing. The paintings were reportedly worth over £100m at the time and the heist was the biggest art theft in Swiss history and one of the largest in the world.  Last October, Serbian police recovered two paintings by Pablo Picasso stolen in 2008 from a gallery in the Swiss town of Pfäffikon, near Zurich.

    At artrepublic we are always on the lookout for new artists and new talent from all over the world.  Los Angeles is currently a hotbed for new and established artists working within the graffiti art genre as it makes its move from street walls to gallery walls. One such artist that has caught our attention is Norm. On the graffiti scene since the late nineties Norm has a distinctive style inspired by the likes of RETNA, Saber and REVOK. His involvement with the AWR/MSK family has supported his rise to fame within the graffiti world turning his love of urban culture into a fine art. And now NORM has turned his talents from graffiti writing to body decoration as tattooing has taken over his passion. Judging from his paintings of beautiful women altered by hand, miniature constructs of ghetto city scenes, and his drive to never stop tattooing, failure is definitely not an option for this artist. His patience and drive keep him moving, learning, and progressing as an artist.  He produces his own unique style; a body of work that ranges in all forms, but keeps its own identity.  “Always” was produced for a recent show at a LA gallery where he showcased the fusion of his work with prints of tattooed women.  He often works with photos, painting over them, covering them with decorative work and calligraphy. Printed in four colour ways, we currently have the blue version in the Brighton gallery demonstrating the clear crossover between graffiti and body art, his prints echo some of the intricate designs used by tattoo artists. Norm’s main influences lay in the very foundation of his art; the streets. In his youth, he was obsessed with graffiti, everything he did revolved around painting. Previous to that, the artist states “ my obsessions ran a much darker course, and writing graffiti kept my demons at bay, so I threw myself into it entirely”. As with many artists from LA, street art was a vehicle for avoiding the trouble that the other side of the streets had to offer.  Norm has a very fresh outlook on his work combined with a relaxed approach, making work that he likes to look at.  “I thought I would do graffiti always and forever, until I started tattooing...Tattooing has taken me across the country and around the world and turned into something I hadn't come close to imagining...I've focused all my attention on the space in between the two things I love, graffiti and making tattoos. Beyond that, there is no more thought or context in my work but making the kind of art I want to make and that I want to see by any means available to me. The stuff I make is for me and whoever else likes it.” A true precisionist, Norm has also ventured into tattoo machine building; creating intricate tools of the trade used the world over by renowned tattoo artists. Now located in Los Angeles, California, Norm owns and operates WILL RISE TATTOO with his amazingly talented team of tattoo artists.  If you would like further information of available works or to enquire about other works and artist’s we have in the gallery please call +44 (0)1273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com Return to our Brighton section If were interested in this article you may like to… Find our more about Norm and the graffiti art movement in our artist biography and art term definition sections.

  • Urban Art Auction Proves Continuing Strength of the Art Market

    The recent bi-annual sale of urban art by Bonhams, London was once again dominated by Banksy, but with overall sales totalling upwards of £700,000 and with 92% sold by value, it was confidence in the art market that was the real winner. In total seventeen art works by the celebrated graffiti artist, Banksy, went under the hammer on the 29th March as part of Bonhams Urban Art Sale, selling for a very healthy total of £405,425. Banksy 'Barcode' Exceptional prices were achieved for three original works by the artist. Leopard and Barcode, acquired directly from an exhibition entitled Existencilism at the 33 1/3 Gallery, Los Angeles by the present owner and never before been seen at auction, sold for £75,650; Love is in the Air, £87,650; and Bomb Hugger, £49,250. Banksy 'Girl With Balloon' Further Banksy highlights included his seminal work Girl and Balloon, which sold for £73,250; Happy Choppers, £13,125; and Nola, £12,500. Top prices were also paid for O Anniversario da Meretris, 2008 by Os Gemeos (£73,250); Shepard Fairey’s Take Action, (£24,375); and an untitled piece by Cyclops (£15,000). In total, the sale realised £742,550. Bonhams were quoted as saying: "Results in last night’s auction prove that the demand for works by Banksy is stronger than ever, and the interest in Urban Art continues to grow. It appears that it is now a truly global phenomenon, attracting bidders from around the world. We look forward to our next sale, and intend to include an exciting mix of big names and emerging talent in this rapidly developing area of the art market." In a separate auction at Bonhams, the art market’s buoyancy was further confirmed when a screenprint of a dollar sign by American pop artist Andy Warhol was sold for £44,450. Measuring just 35.5cm by 25cm, it attracted a pre-sale estimate of £20,000-£30,000. Other contemporary artwork sold at the auction including an oil and watercolour painting by German visual artist Gerhard Richter, which fetched £133,250 - nearly ten times more than its pre-sale estimate of £15,000-£25,000. In short, art, be it urban or contemporary, is still proving a big draw for investors, collectors and the general public alike as most seek safer places to put money into an asset.  If you are interested in this article and would like further information or if you would like to discuss available artworks we have in the gallery please call +44 (0)20 7240 7909 or email soho@artrepublic.com Return to our London section $test =

    British pop artist legend Sir Peter Blake has taken inspiration from his most famous artwork to bring together British cultural figures he most admires alongside family and friends, as he marks his 80th birthday. This new version of the iconic St Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album artwork has been created for a special birthday celebration of Blake's life which will take place at Wayne Hemingway's Vintage festival, Boughton House, Northamptonshire, in July. The recognisable figures featured in the piece are amongst Twiggy, Amy Winehouse, Grayson Perry, JK Rowling, and Noel Gallagher.  "I've chosen people I admire, great people and some who are dear friends. I had a very long list of people who I wanted to go in but couldn't fit everyone in – I think that shows how strong British culture and its legacy of the last six decades are." Singer Noel Gallagher was said to be very pleased to be included. "To be on there with the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Mick Jagger and Paul Weller, just those three people alone, is amazing for me."
