As well as a 2017 revamp of his famous 'God Save the Queen’ edition. This new edition was created 40 years after Reid's first 'customised' an image of the Queen for the Sex Pistols iconic album artwork. Reid is famed for his collaborations with the seminal punk rockers and even co-wrote one of the band’s most popular songs - "Anarchy in the U.K.”. For an authentic punk aesthetic and feel the artist has hand distressed and stained each print, so they will all differ slightly. Priced at £175 each these prints offer a wonderful change to add the work from this legendary artist to your collection without breaking the bank!

    Diamond Dust and Gold Leaf feature heavily in this incredible pair of prints. Acclaimed painter and artrepublic favourite Dave White had just launched his latest Tiger editions, which continue in the artist’s exploration and examination of exotic and colourful creatures. Call our Brighton Gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com to get your hands on Dave White's latest 'Tiger' print. Presented with a dazzling white diamond dust background ‘Tiger’ sees White capture the largest cat species' distinct markings and intense eyes. Again, the artist has depicted an apex predator, one who operates at the top of the food chain, but this one is tragically among the earth’s most endangered species. The gold leaf version of ‘Tiger’ features an opulent gilded background, which brilliantly accentuates the explosive brush strokes and spontaneous drips, flicks and splashes of paint that are synonymous with Dave White’s unique style. It is estimated that there are currently under 4000 wild tigers left in the world, an enormous drop from the 100,000 that roamed free at the start of the 20th Century. White has often looked towards critically endangered animals in his work, drawing attention to their plight and celebrating their idiosyncratic nature. Recently Dave White kindly donated one of his fabulous original watercolour works for a raffle at our Art Yard Sale. All proceeds from the raffle went toward Virunga National Park in the Congo. Virunga is Africa's oldest national park and is also the continent's most biologically diverse protected area. The luck winner was drawn out the hat by street artist Pure Evil and is a now the proud owner of a beautiful elephant original. Be sure to pop in our Brighton Gallery where you can view our large selection of Dave White editions. Being of our most popular artists White’s work is known to quickly sell out and we have already had a lot of interest in the Tiger prints, which are flying out the door. You can view Dave White'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. $test =

    The Observer Food Monthly features Britain’s best loved Pop Artist. In the most recent edition of The Observer Food Monthly supplement, Sir Peter Blake discussed his fascinating life, artistic career and the highs and lows of success over a meal at his favourite restaurant, Mr Chow. Related: Find out more about Blake’s latest ‘Dazzle Alphabet’ Set, which is selling quickly in our Brighton gallery! Illustration by Lyndon Hayes In the interview the Godfather of Pop Art explains his long-standing relationship with the prestigious Knightsbridge restaurant and his fifty-year friendship with its celebrity proprietor Michael Chow. Blake, not one for shameless name dropping, also reluctantly recounts meeting Andy Warhol during the height of the American artist’s career in the 1960s. Keeping on topic with the forthcoming general election, Blake discusses his political stance and views, despite having famously never voted. “To me all a country really has is its culture. The rest is all infrastructure. Lawyers and doctors and shopkeepers and so on are, in my view, necessary to back up the culture, the things we can create, the things that will last. Music and art and design and writing, the things we are good at.” – Sir Peter Blake Blake finally touches briefly on what we can only presume to be his most loathed subject, his iconic cover for 'Sgt. Pepper’s' by The Beatles, in particularly the low fee of £200 he was paid. The album went on to sell over 30 million copies worldwide and was hailed as one of the most important records of the 20th Century. It also helped catapult Blake's work into the public consciousness and forever linked himself with the band in their most popular era. Follow this link to read the full interview on The Guardian’s website In our Brighton gallery we have a large number of signed limited edition prints by Sir Peter Blake available including his brand new ‘Dazzle Alphabet’ series, which is selling quickly.

    Check out the Godfather of Pop Art’s new dazzling artwork. Despite being in his eighties there is absolutely no sign of Peter Blake slowing down the production of his now iconic and much-celebrated artwork. The prints are selling out fast and will go up in price as the editions sells. So please contact the gallery by calling us on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com to get your hand on one! The Godfather of Pop Art has just released his latest series, 'Dazzle Alphabet' portfolio, which is the artist’s first alphabet inspired artwork since 2007. Each letter of the alphabet has been created as a silkscreen print, embellished with gold and silver metallic inks with candy pop colours. Available as 27 individual letters (letters ‘I’ and ‘J’ come as single prints as well as separately) or presented as an archival box set, these eye-catching new works feature Blake’s signature Pop Art style Dazzle motif. “Most artists go potty as they get older: dafter and madder. So I am consciously going to do that.” – Sir Peter Blake The Dazzle motif references Blake’s early work as well as his recent exploration of the ‘dazzle’ effect, which was originally a method of helping vessels avoid enemy detection in World War One. It was featured extensively on Blake’s design of the ‘Snowdrop’ ferry, which operates on the River Mersey in Liverpool. Sir Peter Blake was made an honorary scouser after creating the dazzle ship makeover entitled 'Everybody Razzle Dazzle' back in 2015. Lord Mayor of Liverpool Roz Gladden said: "Sir Peter has helped shape Liverpool's cultural significance on the global stage for more than five decades - from Sgt Pepper to Everybody Razzle Dazzle. "His work with The Beatles was one of the seminal moments in popular art in the 20th Century and 50 years on still resonates around the world.” Blake has rekindled his career-long fascination with text and the alphabet in this latest incredible and hugely uplifting series. The motif in the artist’s work is related to his enduring interest in childhood innocence and nostalgia, and Victorian and Edwardian graphic illustration. By rendering each letter in bright colours and adding the graphic monochrome ‘dazzle’ pattern, Blake has put his definitive pop art stamp on this alphabet, creating an enormously collectable new body of work.

    We had the pleasure of welcoming the Victorian-inspired artist. Dan Hillier is one of our most sought after artists. His esteemed reputations is built upon the creation of  mesmerising, monochrome images collaged together using Victorian 1880s illustrations and embellished with own astute draftsmanship. Hillier's work is a self-described 'hodgepodge' with the artist riffing on influences that range from ancient cultures, religious imagery and iconography, nature and animals. As well as spiritual practices, psychedelics and other esoteric philosophies. "A monochromatic, psychedelic, therianthropic, neo-Victorian good-time romp through light and dark, nature and wonder." - Dan Hillier describing his wonderful work. Back in 2014 Hillier gain widespread recognition when he created the iconic album artwork for local band Royal Blood's eponymous album. The record went on to win the Brighton-based rockers a Brit Award and saw Dan's work enter the public's collective consciousness. “I’ve realised over the years is what I’m seeking to make is my own kind iconographical work, much like the church icons you get of the mother and child or Buddhist and Hindu cosmological deities.” - Dan Hillier Dan has exhibited in diverse locations such as London's Saatchi Gallery and the Louvre in Paris. In recent months his work has decorated Shakespeare's Globe play house on London's South Bank. It's always delightful to have Dan Hillier drop by to say hello and a real treat to behold firsthand his new print editions.

    The anonymous street artist's new Dover painting is causing quite a stir. The enigmatic king of the underground Banksy has made his feelings on Brexit clear with his latest enormous painting. Depicting a man busy at work chiselling a star off the European Union flag, this three-story-high stencilled work is one of Banksy's largest ever UK street pieces. The Kent-based painting was revealed via Banksy's official Instagram along with the simple caption 'Dover, England'. The artist also posted a rough pencil sketch of the design afterwards. The images have garnered a combined total of over 200k likes. Already, despite being less than a week old, the mural is at the centre of a controversial dispute with the building's owners who are reportedly looking to sell it off privately. When asked by the BBC the family said: "We are exploring options for the retention, removal or sale of the [Dover} piece. We will look to benefit local charities with proceeds from any sale of the piece". The Gooden family, who have a large property portfolio in Kent, have been embroiled in a Banksy related feud before when the artist painted an image on another of their properties. This time it was the Folkstone stencil of an elderly woman staring at an empty plinth, which was disputed in court. The piece in question, titled 'Art Buff', was removed from its wall and flown to the US before being returned back to Kent. It remains to be seen what will happen to this latest Brexit work. The local council are watching the wall 24 hours a day on CCTV to ensure that it doesn't fall victim to any criminal behaviour. Meanwhile, In our Brighton gallery, we have a number of works from artists who have been inspired by Banksy or worked with the artist. Ben Eine and Pure Evil have both been closely involved in working with the mysterious artist, helping to create his sought after prints in the early days. While the like of Eelus, Copyright, RYCA and Thristy Bstrd have all cited Banksy as an influence in their work. Be sure to pop in the gallery to view all work in person! $test =
