    Earlier in December was the long-awaited Snow Dogs By The Sea auction. Several of our artist designed pieces went under the hammer to raise money for the Martlets Hospice in Hove. The total money raised from the auction was a hugely impressive £337,900. Ryan Callanan aka RYCA and Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim’s ‘Boomer’, a futurist metallic K9 fitted with a stereo, sold for an incredible £20,000. The Brightonian DJ described the piece “the most overpriced, over-sized, ludicrous sound system in the world”. Other dogs by artists including Pure Evil, Kai & Sunny, Mike Edwards, Gemma Compton and Louise Dear all sold on the night, adding to the huge final figure. The sell-out auction was expertly hosted by acclaimed celebrity auctioneer Tim Wonnacott who worked the bidders into a frenzy. Project manager Sarah Harvey said: “Snowdogs by the Sea has been an absolutely phenomenal success; we’ve worked so hard on the project for the last year and the reaction from the public has been incredible. We’ve seen fantastic support for Martlets, I think thanks to the project local people understand what hospice care is, which is vital, because without support from the local community we wouldn’t exist. The auction was an emotional and nerve racking evening, Tim did an expert job and he helped us raise such an astounding sum of money. £337,900 will make a huge difference to Martlets.” More than 9.1k people watched the auction live on the Snowdogs by the Sea Facebook page with online bidding provided by local company Bid Logix. artrepublic would like to say a huge thank you to all the artists who took part, as well as those who bid for the dogs and visited them when they were in situ around Brighton.

  • Our Top 5 artists inspired by Star Wars prints

    With the new Star Wars film Rouge One out now what better time to highlight our top five artists who are moved by the Force.

    With the new Star Wars film Rouge One out now what better time to highlight our top five artists who are moved by the Force. RYCA's work uses star wars iconography to put an ironic spin on nostalgia as high art, and uses visual equations that create jokes with political and pop references, making his art prints refreshingly comic and accessible. Photo-realist oil painter Zoe Moss’s playful Star Wars couplings have a beautifully light hearted touch. Richard Berner uses vibrant watercolour inks using vivid colours and careful use of dripping paint to create his great Star Wars images. Illustrator and animator Liam Brazier works with digital prints to create a striking, illustrative aesthetic. AME72 is known for his Lego figures and of course his Star Wars images involve Star Wars Lego characters. Some of his works are even made in Lego.

  • Turner Prize 2016 Winner Announced

    After months of anticipation, 2016’s Turner Prize winner has been announced: Helen Marten - the youngest of this year’s nominees - is the latest to claim one of the contemporary art world’s most prestigious prizes, for the "poetic and enigmatic qualities which reflect the complexities and chal....
    After months of anticipation, 2016’s Turner Prize winner has been announced: Helen Marten - the youngest of this year’s nominees - is the latest to claim one of the contemporary art world’s most prestigious prizes, for the "poetic and enigmatic qualities which reflect the complexities and challenges of being in the world today,” as the jury described. Her breathtakingly beautiful sculptural work, with its “extraordinary range of materials and form,” defied expectation and convention, bringing a compelling and novel approach to aesthetic modes for a twenty-first century audience. Marten, along with Michael Dean, Anthea Hamilton, and Josephine Pryde, was shortlisted back in September, and this year’s exhibition proved to be a thought provoking and stimulating immersive experience: from a miniature train set, to abstract installations, surrealist-inspired sculptures and a symbolic sea of pennies, each of the Turner Prize nominated artists brought something fresh, innovative and exceptional to the ever evolving art world, forever placing their stamp on twenty-first century’s ongoing contribution to the story of art. The Turner Prize has been a cornerstone of the art world since it was established in 1984, and its roll-call of winners includes household names, who have risen to fame thanks to the achievement of the prestigious award: from Gilbert and George, to Anish Kapoor, to Gillian Wearing, the list of both winners and nominees is an impressive assemblage of some of the very best in diverse strands of contemporary art. 1995 - just over ten years after the first ever Turner Prize event - saw Britain’s most acclaimed contemporary artist Damien Hirst take the prize, rocketing both his career, and the YBA movement to which he belonged, skyward. What followed would become some of the most iconic pieces of art the world has ever known, from sharks, to sheep to skulls. At artrepublic, we stock a number of very special, signed, limited edition prints by Damien Hirst, each one a highly collectable component of the artist’s extraordinary and far-reaching portfolio. From a lithograph print of the inimitable, diamond encrusted skull For the Love of God,  to photographic prints of Hirst’s signature pill sculptures, to bright butterflies on colourful canvases, we’ve got a stunning array of work from one of the Turner Prize’s most shining stars. Less than a decade later, in 2003, controversial ceramicist and famous cross-dresser Grayson Perry, won the distinguished award. Taking the podium in a dress, Perry became one of the country’s most memorable and expressive artists, creating a body of work that challenged societal norms and expectations through a deeply distinctive aesthetic. Our range of limited edition Grayson Perry prints at artrepublic showcase his genre-defining style, depicting femininity in unconventional and unexpected forms, to spectacular effect. See the collection here. Yet, as with 2016, although we might remember Hirst and Perry as winners of their years, both had their work featured amongst a number of other artists, also dripping with exceptional talent. The same year that Grayson Perry won the Turner Prize, iconic artist brothers Jake and Dinos Chapman (following in the footsteps of earlier Prize winning duo Gilbert and George) were nominated, and their erotic, inflatable installation Death was shown at the exhibition. Although known for their esoteric sculptural work, their prints are suffused with a dark surreality, that only the Chapman brothers can achieve with such panache. Explore the limited edition range that we stock at artrepublic here. If you’ve still yet to see the Turner Prize winner and nominees, the exhibition lasts until January 2 - head to London’s Tate Britain for an unmissable opportunity to see some of the very best in contemporary art. $test =

    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 =
