    A sold out masterpiece from the contemporary painter and one of his largest ever prints.  We are thrilled to have received in our artrepublic Brighton Gallery one of Dan Baldwin’s most sought after editions and rare prints ‘Love’. Only available at our Brighton Gallery - follow this link for other gallery news The impressive silkscreen is one of Baldwin’s most personal works and documents the first meeting and following date with his future wife Annie.  Please Note: There are only one of these prints available, so contact the gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com for further information. 'Love' features Baldwin’s signature layered aesthetic, vintage illustrations and wild expressive use of paint. This edition was made by the master printers at Coriander Studios who, alongside Dan, have worked closely with Sir Peter Blake, Bruce McLean, Joe Webb and Storm Thorgerson over the years. 'Love' is a 24-colour silkscreen print, which features embossing, a trio of glazes, gold leaf and diamond dust. At 112cm x 115cm it is also one of the artist's largest editions to date. When originally released the print sold very quickly, so if you are keen to get your hands on this classic be sure to call the gallery. Dan explains the genesis of the incredible print ‘Love’ 'I worked in a video shop for five years or so in Hove whilst I was still on the road to being a full-time artist. It was a great shop; specialised in arthouse cinema and always played good music, and was generally a bit of a hang-out. Annie (my girlfriend) was a regular customer of the shop, I remember serving her for years. One day she stopped coming in. Two years later I was walking along, back from Milan, just off to the train, and I saw Annie coming towards me. I did a double-take and so did she, we had this moment in the street. Months later, one summers day, she walked up to me with an ice lolly, holding it in her hand and said 'you look like you need this'. It was the first time she ever spoke to me and she almost didn't go through with it out of a nervous fear, but she felt she had to make contact. Another six months went by, I was single, so was she, I asked her out for dinner and our date lasted 36 hours. That was five years ago and now we have an 11 month-old baby. The piece Love was originally going to be called Peach, as that is Annie's favourite colour. Then it became Peach Video Girl, and as the painting grew I changed it to just Love. There is a lot of symbolism in the work: the poppy, the orchid, the swallow, the little girl, the little boy, a bird feeding its young, and the skeletal hand/figure searching for its love even in the afterlife. It was the beginning of this series I want to make called Spectrum; more about colour, harmony, beauty. I also like the melting ice lolly as a metaphor, there's something striking about it, dropped by a child or discarded- left to melt....'   Dan Baldwin We have a selection of Dan Baldwin in our Brighton Gallery, so pop in or contact us via 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com for further information. $test =

    The prolific artists have transformed the façade of a community day centre in East London with an eye-catching geometric design. STATIC are amongst the most prolific street artists around and as testament to their enormous work ethic their largest ever mural to date has just been unveiled at 247 Markhouse Road in Walthamstow, a day centre for adults with disabilities and special educational needs (SEN). Prior to the opening and building naming ceremony, which took place on Tuesday 11th July and was officiated by the borough mayor of Waltham Forest, we caught up with the artists Tom and Craig of STATIC to find out a bit more about the enormous undertaking. How long did Markhouse Road take you guys to paint? Tom: It took five weeks from start to finish, that was mostly because the buildings outer is corrugated metal and we had to scrape all the existing paint off. The prep time was probably about two-thirds of the actual job. Is this the largest thing you’ve ever painted? Craig: Yeah. It started off with us supposed to just paint the front side of the building, which is what we had designed and prepared everything for. Then we offered to do the school side and we were then asked to do the reception and drop off areas in the car park as well, so we ended up doing all the visible sides. Did you just use your preferred media of spray paint or other methods as well? T: It was just spray paint; we went through about 400 cans in total. Because the building is corrugated and metal, spray paint was the best paint for it as you could get round the angles rather than just using a roller. Also with the conditions varying from rain and high winds, to sleet and then blazing sunshine it meant spray paint did the best job. What’s the reaction been like from those who work at the centre, visitors and local residents? C: We’ve spoken to quite a few members of staff and people who are using the building and they’ve been really positive about it. They’ve said how nice it was to see the gradual transformation while we’ve been working on it. You can see the good reaction from people coming to work and how much the building has drastically changed. It gives the staff a sense of pride in the building as well. T: Before we started we did a consultation where we sat outside the building over a weekend and asked people what they thought the building was used for and what sort of design they’d like to see there. The majority of people didn’t know what the building was for and had previously ignored it. Painting it how we have is going to get people talking and wanting to find out more about it and changing their perspective. Were there any challenges in the project? T: Due to the conditions and requirements of some of the visitors to the centre we had to be quite careful regarding what we could and couldn’t do design wise. With it being corrugated it made it tricky to do certain things. We also had to avoid using certain bright colours as some autistic people can have a negative reaction, so we stuck to more pastel shades and kept the design quite simple so it flows nicely. With community-based projects like this and your ongoing work with Wood Street Walls, it seems like STATIC are really driven to improving the aesthetics of Waltham Forest Borough... C: If you go down Wood Street now you can see a mural at virtually every point, which is quite rare especially in this part of London. Everyone’s got their own favourite, it’s something that is continually rewarding to be a part of. We’re always looking for similar projects to the Markhouse Road mural and for artists who want to be involved in Wood Street Walls. STATIC - PRESS PLAY: ETERNAL RETURN SILKSCREEN LIMITED EDITION OF 35 If you are interested in adding any STATIC work to your collection you can view their work in our Brighton Gallery.

  • Coming Soon: Nick Smith’s Latest Limited Edition Print

    Dropping This Friday 7th July. We are very excited to announce the latest print from the studio of conceptual collage artist Nick Smith will be available to purchase this Friday. Titled 'Ourselves Unseen 2017', the piece will see Nick continue with his now signature custom colour-chip tech....
    Dropping This Friday 7th July. We are very excited to announce the latest print from the studio of conceptual collage artist Nick Smith will be available to purchase this Friday. Titled 'Ourselves Unseen 2017', the piece will see Nick continue with his now signature custom colour-chip technique, whereby he annotates each chip with text to add different dimensions to the work. To register your interest in the print you can call our Brighton Gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com for further information. Starry Night Since his debut exhibition in London in 2014, Nick Smith has established himself as one of the most exciting and popular artists around, with his pixilated prints consistently selling out. Son of Man 2015 Exploring imagery from classical paintings by the likes of Van Gogh and Warhol, to notable figures including Kate Moss, Frida Kahlo and David Hockney. The artist has created his own distinct visual language and continues to explore fascinating new ways of communicating his ideas. Brother With A Golden Bird Nick Smith was also recently commissioned by the esteemed auction house Sotheby's to create his own unique interpretation of an Old Masters painting, with the resulting work being displayed in their 1st Annual “Street Masters” Exhibit in New York. Smith chose the 15th Century oil painting “PORTRAIT OF A BOY, HALF LENGTH, IN A LANDSCAPE, DRESSED IN BLACK ROBES AND CAP” by Agnolo di Domenico del Mazziere and went on to create his very own 21st Century version. Smith explains the process behind his idiosyncratic interpretation of the painting, created with his signature custom colour chip methodology: "After conducting research into the artwork I chose to reinterpret, I discovered that two brothers are credited with its creation, Agnolo and Donnino del Muzzier. The older brother Donnino was largely unnoticed but tax records showed that he was the brother who received the payments for the two brothers joint enterprise. while the younger brother Agnolo was recognised as a talented artist who conducted much of the work." - Nick Smith Nick Smith’s piece, titled 'Brother with a Golden Bird', was purchased by a representative of the auction house and is now part of their permanent collection, hung in their New York City HQ. We can't wait to see the latest edition from Nick Smith. His prints are known to sell out quickly, so don't sleep on this one!

    The celebrated painter’s latest offerings have a strong tropical theme. It’s always exciting when Dave White announces new work and fans of his art won’t be disappointed with the fresh editions from his recent ‘Tropical’ series. Call our Brighton Gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com to get your hands on these fantastic new exotic editions by one of our most popular artists! First up is a pair of eye-catching birds of paradise, ‘Sun Bird’ (below) and ‘Parrot II' (above), each of which demonstrates White’s technical brilliance as a painter and colourist. Bold, wide brushstrokes are contrasted with the artist’s signature expressive flicks, drips and splashes of paint to create a mesmerising composition that seemingly refuses to sit still. Sun Bird Closely cropped in on each of the bird’s heads, their beady eyes really draw the viewers into the picture, while the abstract marks add a real vibrancy and energy. Clown Fish Dave has depicted the distinct ‘Clown Fish’ in one of his new dynamic movement compositions. By using increasingly fainter applications of watercolour paint White creates a fabulous visual allusion of the tropical fish darting around, using the white negative space of the paper as water. Tree Frog Dave has played around with scale in his eye-popping new 'Tree Frog' edition, enlarging the typically miniscule creature, exentuating it's enormous amber coloured eyes and vibrant green colouring. A mesmerising diamond dust background further elevates this print, adding a distinct opulence and luxurious feel. Tarantula Finally the artist has presented a creature that can easily send a shiver down one's spine, the exotic Tarantula spider. Although even the most die-hard arachnophobics who view this print might just find themselves re-examining this animal due to Dave White's stunning representation! Dave White’s prints are always hugely popular in our Brighton Gallery, so be sure to contact us quickly to get your hands on one of these tropical editions before they’re all gone. Call our gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com for further information. $test =
