    A ferocious new offering from the celebrated painter. We are thrilled to have recently received in our gallery Dave White’s latest incredible shark edition, ‘Apex Diamond Dust 2017’. For more news stories and events visit our Brighton Gallery page. Dave has returned to depicting the apex predator and creature that resides quite comfortably at the top of the aquatic food chain; the fearsome great white shark. Dave White describes his fascination with the creature: "It’s an incredible predator and really beautiful creature. They’re very fragile as well as being so powerful. They’re such a rare animal, very few people will ever get to see them”. In his latest print, the artist captures the dynamism of great white sharks, along with their beauty and ease of movement through deft brush strokes that contrast with spontaneous flicks and splashes of pigment. "I want people to re-engage and look at the incredible beauty of these things. It doesn't matter what it is, if you just take a step back and have a real look at something, you often leave completely blown away." Dave White Contrasted against a shimmering and opulent diamond dust background that mimics the transparency of water this fearsome shark had been expertly rendered as an archival giclee print, embellished with varnishes for an extra level of detail and attention always associated with Dave White’s art. As with all of Dave White’s editions ‘Apex Diamond Dust 2017’ promises to be hugely popular, so to avoid missing out on this masterpiece call our Brighton Gallery on 01273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com for further information. $test =

    Produced ten years after the controversial original edition. Now available at artrepublic are anarchist artist James Cauty's STAMPS OF MASS DESTRUCTION LEGACY SET. A series of three exquisite silkscreen prints depicting stamps bearing the image of the queen, which the artist has modified with a gas mask.  Originally released in 2003 following the media scare that Saddam Hussein could attack London with chemical weapons and a few weeks before the invasion of Iraq, Cauty created the series entitled 'Black Smoke, Stamps of Mass Destruction' for our artrepublic Brighton Gallery. At the time of release the prints caused much controversy when the Royal Mail claimed the picture breached its copyright, resulting in many of the editions been sent off to be destroyed alongside widespread media coverage. artrepublic gallery owner Lawrence Alkin said at the time: "I am quite amazed. It has had a fantastic reception. We have had one or two objections and thousands of compliments." James Cauty responded: "I am just an artist doing my job. Are the Royal Mail trying to infringe my artistic freedom?" The extreme reaction to the prints led them to become even more sought after and desirable amongst art collectors. James Cauty is best known for being one half of The KLF, the 90s cult electro-pop band who famously burnt  £1,000,000 on the Scottish isle of Jura. He was also a part of Banksy’s bemusement park Dismaland back in 2015 with his post-apocalyptic model village ‘The Aftermath Dislocation Principle’. The sculpture was created from modified miniature railway figures and detailed the chaotic aftermath of a devastating riot. Cauty has translated these political statements into miniscule sculptural editions that each fit into a jam jar and are available through artrepublic. Tiny policemen play golf, while workers in biohazard suits decontaminate children. Each work provides a small vignette into the macabre, strange and hilarious world of Jimmy Cauty.

    The campaign aims to preserve one of the town’s most iconic areas. We are very pleased to announce that artrepublic has pledged £500 towards 'Save Mederia Terraces', a fundraising initiative that aims to save the Grade II-listed structure on Brighton’s seafront. For more news stories and events visit our Brighton Gallery page. The well-known cast iron arches stretch half a mile along the promenade and require a £24m investment to avoid further irreparable damage. The campaign aims to raise £430,000 for the crucial proof-of-concept fund required before further widespread investment. 'West Pier Starlings II - Blue' by Shane O'Driscoll celebrates another of Brighton's iconic structures This money will go towards fully restoring at least three arches while asking the people of Brighton how they’d like to see the other arches used and drawing up plans including various pop-ups. The terraces are particularly important to artrepublic Brighton as they’ve homed several emerging local artists over the years, who have gone on to great things and sell prints through our Brighton Gallery. Sir Peter Blake proclaims his adoration for Brighton in his fabulous box set We see the new development as a wonderful way to enrich the area and continue to provide artists with the space they need to manifest work, as well as presenting an exciting opportunity for local businesses. The project promises to utilize the city’s creative energy with the intention of transforming the area into a hot new must-see destination. After three weeks over 600 backers have pledged £140,000 and momentum continues to build towards the goal.

    Today (Saturday August 19th) is World Photo Day – a global event aspiring to create positive change in the world through photography. World Photo Day seeks to champion the flow of photographs around the globe – borne of the belief that each of us has a responsibility to affect positive change in the world and can do so through the photographs we take and share. To celebrate we’ve asked three of our favourite photographers to nominate and discuss a photograph they believe changed the world.   David Pexton Photos that changed the world, to me, are subjective and personal. Photos of conflict might be the first images people think of but, for me, it’s an image that made me realise my insignificance in this universe; The Pale Blue Dot. Taken not by a human, but by the voyager space probe in 1990. This photo isn’t as famous as the photo of Earth Rise taken by William Anders in 1968 that depicts the earth appearing over the moon’s horizon. I didn’t see the Pale Blue Dot photograph until 15 years after it was taken until I watched a video of it on YouTube with the narration of Carl Sagan (who instructed NASA to turn the Voyager probe around one last time to take one more final image of the Earth after its mission had been completed). It is an image that put a lump in my throat and caused my eyes to well-up. If you’ve never seen the video, find a quiet moment to watch it without any interruption. Carl Sagan says it all really, but just seeing this tiny, tiny blue pixel hanging in the vastness of space is incredibly humbling. We are so insignificant to the rest of the universe and it makes me so sad that we can send a probe to the outer reaches of space, but most of our time and effort is spent in conflict here on Earth. I would like to think that images of conflict, of Earth Rise, and this, The Pale Blue Dot can bring us together collectively as one so that we can work towards a better cause; our future.   Richard Heeps Phan Thị Kim Phúc or ‘Napalm Girl’ by Pulitzer Prize-Winning Photographer Nick Ut, published when I was seven years old. Taken in Trang Bang, the photograph shows nine year old Phan Thị Kim Phúc fleeing a South Vietnamese napalm attack after being severely burned. It evokes such strong memories of my childhood growing up during the Vietnam War, when it dominated the nightly news. The picture had so much impact then and is still moving today. That photograph pretty much stopped the war, the power of the photograph changed the world.   Matt Henry With the invention of the first motion-picture camera at the turn of the nineteenth century, moving pictures very quickly adopted the language of fiction. Not so with photography, which despite various experiments with ‘staging’, remained a medium whose dedicates prized the ‘decisive moment’ and the preservation of the ‘real’ over constructed scenes, also known as tableau vivant. The tableau was deemed an amateur attempt at mimicking painting by critics like Beaumont Newhall. If photography was to be considered an art form in its own right, it needed to focus on its essence; its absolute purity as a medium of reproduction. It wasn’t until the 1960s that various postmodern theoretical approaches began to take apart the idea of the photograph as a pure, objective representation of reality. The operator and the viewer must also play their part. This freed up artists to play with the ambiguity of the medium and paved the way for staged photography as a genre, emerging in the 1980s with artists like Cindy Sherman and Jeff Wall. Although many of Wall’s shots were recreations of actual events that he had witnessed, I’ve chosen ‘Mimic’ (1982) as one of many images that he made that have proved crucial in making constructed photography a celebrated form of photographic practice.

    We've chosen some joyful prints that spread the message of love and positivity for the city’s biggest party weekend. With Brighton’s biggest party weekend of the year Pride coming up we thought we’d showcase a selection of art prints all of which encompass the love, positivity and inclusive nature of the event. For more news stories and events visit our Brighton Gallery page. Brighton Pride has been running since 1973 and annually attracts over 300,000 people to celebrate the LGBT+ community, bringing the city together under a giant rainbow flag of joy. First up is Ben Eine’s hugely popular ‘Love’ Lenticular, an artrepublic exclusive that sees the urban artist take advanced Lenticular printing techniques to the next level. Available in three different colourways and featuring Eine’s most popular and sought after ‘Circus’ font, this print sums up in one word what Pride is all about! Sara Pope’s luscious lip prints have become one of our Brighton Gallery’s most popular motifs and we think this latest offering ‘BISOUS’ would make a fabulous piece for any Pride revelers looking to spread the love. We had to include Sir Peter Blake’s eye-catching target as it includes the rainbow colours, synonymous with Pride and the LGBT+ community. This hugely uplifting 3D piece is Blake at his Pop-tastic best and is sure to raise the spirits. As Brighton Pride is one of the city’s most popular annual attractions we thought it would be a shame to leave out Blake’s beautiful Brighton box set of prints. Released last year as an artrepublic exclusive, the set features 5 exquisite archival pigment prints each featuring a range of artifacts, ephemera, scenes and motifs associated with Brighton. Ryan Callanan’s new print ‘Happy Beams’ again spreads the message of love and features his signature acid house smiley motif in a multitude of colours. Ryan has previously collaborated with local Brighton DJ Fat Boy Slim, whose uplifting big beats always have revellers dancing into the early hours during Pride. This edition has been hand finished with metallic and fluorescent inks, 23ct gold leaf, and diamond dust for a glamorous party feel. Finally, we have another great Brighton related edition of the iconic West Pier by Shane O’Driscoll. After all the fun and celebrations of Pride, many will hit the beach to recuperate and this print showcases one of the South Coast’s most recognisable attractions.
