    The queen of felt has recreated soft sculpture versions of high-end products. We are very pleased to have recently received in our Brighton gallery one of Lucy Sparrow’s exquisite cabinets ‘For Richer, For Poorer’. The ingenious piece sees Sparrow fill a mirror backed cabinet with a plethora of luxurious products. More more information or to purchase Lucy Sparrow artwork please contact the gallery by calling us on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com. The cabinet contains Moet Champagne, caviar, bars of gold, lobster and Chanel perfume, plus much more, all created from Sparrow’s signature material of choice, felt. The installation plays around with notions of materialism, our obsession with luxury goods and consumerism. By recasting society's most precious ubiquitous objects in a traditionally utilitarian fabric, Sparrow challenges the viewer to reassess these commodities in a playful and satirical way. Later this year Lucy Sparrow will be embarking on her biggest project to date when she launches her New York convenience store ‘Eight Till Late’, which will be comprised of an incredible 8,000 items, all hand sewed by the artist in her secretive felt cave. In under one month, Sparrow raised over £40,000 via her Kickstarter page to help fund the hugely ambitious project. In an interview with The Guardian, the artist explained the intention behind the US project. “I want the work to make people think about the loss of community spaces when these small corner shops disappear. To remind them how valuable these corner shops really are and the colour they bring to our lives.” - Lucy Sparrow Lucy Sparrow's American goods cabinet, which inspired her forthcoming NYC show, is also available in the Brighton Gallery. Be sure to visit our Brighton gallery to view Lucy Sparrow’s wonderful ‘For Richer, For Poorer’ cabinet in person, as well as several other of her works.

  • Ben Eine Drops His Latest 'Alphabet' Lenticular

    Get your hands on this hot new typographic offering from the street art supremo! We are very pleased to announce that the graphic gunslinger Ben Eine has just released his latest artrepublic exclusive ‘Circus Alphabet Lenticular’. The new edition sees the artist revisit his now iconic alphabet series (minus the elusive letter ‘W’) produced in his most popular ‘Circus’ font. Call our Brighton gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com for further information. Ben Eine is widely regarded as one of the godfathers of street art and has written his name in the history books of the movement. From his early lawbreaking days spent tagging trains and avoiding the authorities (not always with success), to now being part of the art world establishment Eine has always created work that is striking, colourful and communicates directly with the viewer. At the end of last year, Eine made his first foray into the advanced printing techniques of lenticulars with his heartfelt ‘Love’ edition. The artist has held an interest in the three-dimensional qualities that lenticulars create since finding a holographic collectible card in his box of cereal as a child. The now advanced technologies have helped the artist translate his initial fascination into new breath-taking limited edition prints. Available in black and white colourways, as well as a very limited XL version, Ben Eine’s ‘Circus Alphabet Lenticular’ creates the optical illusion of changing colours depending on the angle you view the piece from. This is certainly a work that has to be seen up close and in the flesh to be truly appreciated. Ben Eine will also be taking part in this year’s Art Yard Sale, which takes place on Sunday 14th May at Brighton’s Jubilee Square. Follow this link for further information on what promises to be an unmissable day! Be sure to contact our Brighton Gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com to get your latest Ben Eine Lenticular edition! You can follow this link to view the works online. $test =
  • Damien Hirst Is Back With His Spectacular 'Shipwreck' Exhibition

    The world’s biggest artist has just opened his latest Venice show. After much speculation, whispers and rumours Damien Hirst announced his return to the global art stage last week with the long-awaited opening of ‘Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable’ in Venice. Call our Brighton Gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com for further information on any Damien Hirst artwork available! The exhibition, which is spread across the two venues of the prestigious Palazzo Grassi museum, features an incredible 189 brand new pieces by Hirst. The new collection is based on the story of the ancient vessel 'Apistos' that sank off the coast of East Africa, along with its diverse load of precious artifacts. The artist claims that many of the pieces on show were retrieved from the sunken ship and that the sculptures are almost 2000 years old. It has been left up to the viewer to decipher whether the myth the show is centred upon is indeed fact or fiction, with Hirst and the exhibition’s curator adding to the mystique. The celebrated artist has drawn inspiration from a wide variety of ancient cultures, with stone, silver, bronze, gold and crystal elements from Aztec, Inca, Egyptian and Roman civilisations all manifesting in the work. It was reported that the exhibition was ten years in the making and cost Hirst in the region of £50m to complete. The artist aims to recoup some his colossal outgoings through the sale of the works, which are valued from £400,000 to £4.5m each. In an interview with the BBC Hirst explains some of the details and figures regarding the show. Many of his sculptures were purposely submerged in the ocean for years, amassing colourful coral formations and weathering. It certainly seems like ‘Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable’ is Hirst’s major comeback in the art world after several years concentrating on curation and the development of his Newport Street Gallery. We can't wait to see more from this earth-shaking new show! Black Utopia 2012 Meanwhile, in our Brighton gallery, we have several rare signed limited editions by Damien Hirst available, perfect for any avid collector. You can view Hirst's work available online here, alternatively please visit our Brighton gallery or contact us via 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com for further information. image credit : Hypebeast $test =

    Maria Rivans has created an amazing room at the artists residence hotel, so we caught up with her to find out more about how it was created and her life as an artist. What inspired you in creating the Artist Residence room? The room was created around the idea of the long lost tradition of sending picture postcards. I found some beautiful vintage postcards of Brighton and Florida and the collage grew from these. How was creating work on a wall different or similar to creating your other artworks? It was similar in the way that I create all of my collages on a canvas which is attached to my studio wall, so work upright. The challenge with this project was to fit the collage to the dimension of the hotel room walls. Your works are incredibly detailed – how long did it take to create the room in the Artist Residence? The room took a good few months, from the collecting and cutting of all the imagery to finally installing the collage in the room. Once all the images were cut I made an exact mock up of the hotel walls in my studio and from there I began to create the composition. Once I was happy with the design everything was recorded before dismantling and finally reassembled in the hotel. Has it always been your dream to be an artist? Yes totally, as a child I would sit and draw for hours. I was watching the Bette Davis movie  ‘Stolen Life’ where she played an artist and when I saw her painting in her magnificent studio I knew that’s what I wanted to be. Five years later I found myself at art college. Which other artists do you admire? Is there one artist you would love to do a collaboration with? There are so many it’s very hard to chose…but at the moment I am enjoying reading Sarah Lucas’ book about her Venice Biennale exhibition “I Scream Dadio’. I loved that show, it totally knocked me out. What kind of environment do you like to work in? I love my studio, it’s very tidy and organised and I like to work to music all day. If you weren’t an artist, what career path would you have chosen? Astronaut If you could be one person for a day, who would you be? Chan Marshall of Cat Power If you were stranded on a desert island, what one item would you take? My guitar (I can’t play by the way but I’m learning) View Maria's work available to buy at artrepublic.com Competition time!
