    A patriotic homage by the God Father of Pop Art. Our Brighton Gallery is a treasure trove or rare and collectable prints by the world renowned Pop Artist Sir Peter Blake. ‘Union Flag’ is a magnificent limited edition silkscreen print that has been embellished with the highest quality archival glitter. The work continues in Blake’s career-long fascination and love of flags, a repeated motif that has long since served the artist from the beginning of his career in the 1960s. The edition also proclaims Blake’s love of his country and the union of the British Isles. He has explored his own patriotism in other works including his recent 'Brighton' and 'Four Seasons' box sets. Union Flag- signed limited edition silkscreen print with glitter by Peter Blake. Edition Size: 75 Image Size: 830 x 555mm Paper Size: 890 x 720mm ‘I am very patriotic and I love the Union Flag; the sense of history it gives, the union between four great countries that it represents. Over the years I have used printmaking to explore and experiment with the flag in various ways; making large-scale digital prints from Union Flag badges (sewn or enamel) or illustrations that I have collected." “The new works are not based on ‘found’ images of the flag. I wanted to use the variety of hand-applied finishes available when you make a silkscreen, to play with the colours and textures of this simple geometric pattern that is so familiar to us. The prints also celebrate The Queen’s 90th birthday.” – Sir Peter Blake We only have a very limited number of the Union flag prints available so be sure to call our Brighton Gallery or pop in to find out more before they're all gone!

    Another memorable art event in our Brighton Gallery. We’d like to say a big thank you to everyone that attended our recent print launch with Dave White in our Brighton Gallery. It was a fantastic night that saw our Bond Street space filled to the rafters with eager art fans, follower, friends of the gallery and fellow artists. It was an honour and a pleasure to have the main man himself Dave White in our gallery, kindly signing and dedicated prints whilst posing for selfies. We had a number of Dave's current editions on the walls, showcasing the breadth of different animals the artist has explored over the years. From tropical and exotic creatures to native endangered species, each expertly rendered with expressive brush strokes and energetic marks. The first 25 people to purchase one of the new ‘Stag’ and ‘Doe’ print each received a special goodie bag containing our latest artzine, a pair of patches, stickers and a very special limited edition charcoal study print. If you missed out the launch we still have a few of the new prints available in our Brighton Gallery. A must-have piece for any wildlife fans and a classic pair of editions from one of our most popular artists. For more news stories and events visit our Brighton Gallery page. $test =
  • Banksy’s Latest ‘Street Party’ At Walled Off Hotel

    BThe artist's Bethlehem event marks 100 years since the Balfour Declaration. The surreptitious street artist Banksy has recently created a satirical “street party” at his Bethlehem Walled Off hotel to commemorate the centenary anniversary of the Balfour declaration, which promised a Jewish homeland in Palestine and support from the British Government. The street artist stated that the West Bank tea party was created to apologise for Britain’s role in the carving up of the holy land and subsequent years of turmoil and conflict between Israel and Palestine. A statement by Banksy said: "This conflict has brought so much suffering to people on all sides. It didn't feel appropriate to 'celebrate' the British role in it." "The British didn't handle things well here - when you organise a wedding, it's best to make sure the bride isn't already married." The street party was official opened by an actor dressed up as the Queen accompanied by dozens of local Palestinian children. The fake Queen unveiled Banksy’s new carved public artwork "Er... Sorry". The controversial piece of performance art took place just metres away from Banksy’s latest installation, his ingenious Walled Off Hotel. Opening earlier this year the boutique hotel presents Banksy’s subversive artwork in a unique setting, offering visitors the chance to stay in differently themed rooms.

  • New In Our Brighton Gallery: Plastic Jesus

    The anonymous LA-based street artist creates unforgettable stenciled artwork. We are very pleased to announce that we now have signed limited edition prints available from the controversial street artist Plastic Jesus. Currently taking our gallery by storm, the secretive artist made global headlines earlier this year when his life-sized sculpture of rapper Kanye West appeared overnight on Hollywood Boulevard. “We have built Kanye West into some kind of god-like idol, I believe he’s a genius when it comes to writing and producing but he’s human. When we build people into idols we have expectations, and if they fail to meet those expectations we crucify them." - Plastic Jesus The shining gold figure depicted West as Jesus being crucified on the cross, whilst wearing a pair of his sought-after ‘Yeezy’ trainers.  "There are a few celebrities we have made into god-like figures," Plastic Jesus told Rolling Stone in a conversation about his project. "The domain in society and culture that they fill is far greater than their output. I think that's happened to Kanye." 'Yeezus' By Plastic Jesus In our Brighton gallery we currently have available the artist’s print version of his LA installation, ‘Yeezus'. The signed limited edition silkscreen print displays the rapper and beau of Kim Kardashian dressed in a simple loincloth with arms spread eagle, reminiscent of the Christ figure that appears in many renaissance paintings. The print can be viewed as a critique on our 21st-century creeds: consumerism, capitalism, and celebrity culture. The Kanye West stunt wasn’t Plastic Jesus’s first foray into subversive public art. In 2016 he famously created a six-inch high wall around President Donald Trump’s Hollywood star. A parody of the President’s controversial rhetoric stating he was going to build an enormous wall alongside the United State’s border with Mexico. Plastic Jesus was trained as a photojournalist and shifted his practice from the camera to street installations in order better address major sociopolitical and cultural issues. We have other fantastic editions by Plastic Jesus available in our Brighton Gallery including his iconic work ‘Stop Making Stupid People Famous’, a slogan that went viral for the artist, garnering over 40,000 likes. 'Stop Making Stupid People Famous' - By Plastic Jesus Described as the ‘Banksy of L.A.’ Plastic Jesus is one of the most exciting street artists around. Be sure to visit our Brighton Gallery to view first hand his witty, political and powerful works! For more news stories and events visit our Brighton Gallery page. $test =
