    Join us for our final showcase of the year! ‘New Beginnings’ a collection of mixed originals at artrepublic gallery. ‘Dorothy’ by Maria Rivans As we leave 2019 behind us and celebrate the start of what will hopefully be another roaring 20s, we are hosting our final showcase of the year with the exciting and refreshing theme, ‘New Beginnings’. The evening will be a unique opportunity to buy original artwork by a selection of our artists who have created these pieces exclusively for this private view at artrepublic gallery. From butterflies beginning their transformation to tiny shrubs curling towards the light, see how our artists interpret new beginnings in different ways! Featuring original artwork from our leading artists such as Louise McNaught, Magnus Gjoen, Copyright, Dave Buonaguidi, Euan Roberts, Eelus, Mike Edwards, Maria Rivans and Sara Pope to name but a few! ‘Butterfly Effect – Pink’ by Copyright With environmental protests dominating the news over the course of the year and a growing concern for our planet, we have been looking at the concept of sustainability at artrepublic gallery. We are proud to sell a high quality, sustainable product which can be bought for life and passed down through generations whilst retaining its value rather than some products which soon outlive their usefulness and are then destined to landfill. We are also looking to become a fully sustainable business in the very near future and 2020 will bring the implementation of changes for the better. Our ‘New Beginnings’ show will be a nod to this commitment to sustainability and a celebration of new changes with a range of artwork that is hopeful, optimistic and joyful. ‘A Place Where It’s Safe to Dream’ by Louise McNaught Read about our sustainability efforts here With so much waste created throughout the Christmas Season, why not give the gift of art for your loved ones this year? Or treat yourself to a new piece of artwork that celebrates the start of a new decade! We have a team of friendly and knowledgeable staff on hand to offer fun facts about our artists with expert advice and bespoke framing options.

    artrepublic gallery wholeheartedly supports the Brighton Living Wage campaign* which aims to encourage local businesses to voluntarily pay all employees a decent hourly rate rather than the national minimum wage. Calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK and what is required to live and thrive rather than survive, the current Living Wage is reviewed each year and currently stands at £9.00 per hour. A destination for art lovers for over 25 years, the artrepublic gallery in Brighton's North Laine is well-known and loved within the Brighton community. Our staff provide the expertise and knowledge to help match you with your perfect art and they are an integral part of the business and the experience we offer in our gallery. We recognise that it is the skills of our employees that make us such a trusted brand for art advice, and we are more than happy to honour the Brighton Living Wage for our staff. Staff experiencing money worries can have a huge detrimental effect on staff wellbeing and many studies have shown a link between financial strain, mental health and the working environment. Employees who struggling financially are 3.8 times more likely to suffer from anxiety, stress and panic attacks and 4.8 time more likely to experience depression. (Source - Salary Finance) It is important to us that our team feels happy and valued and are paid a fair wage that shows we recognise their talent and hard work. Other artrepublic gallery employee perks include yoga evenings, breathworks workshops and buffet breakfasts and we are always looking at new ways to develop our company culture to improve staff wellbeing. Of course paying staff the Living Wage has been shown provide a number of benefits to employers as well as staff such as lower staff turnover and the associated training costs and improved staff morale and productivity. Spearheaded by Brighton Chamber, the Living Wage campaign has set the goal of making Brighton and Hove a glowing example of how the Living Wage can become the normal and accepted minimum level of payment for all employers in the city.   You can find us listed on the Brighton Living Wage directory   For more news stories and events visit our Brighton Gallery page $test =

    Kids Clubs, talks, music gigs, artrepublic has it all, we look back at how we have kept our guests entertained in our gallery space. Always at the cutting-edge of the contemporary art world, artrepublic are proud to offer a range of exciting events and unique experiences within our newly expanded gallery in the heart of Brighton’s North Laine. We have been reflecting on a few recent favourites… Private Views A Private View offers the chance to see the latest releases from our leading artists with a glass of bubbly in hand and expert advice from our gallery team. Recent events have included exclusive originals and print releases from Aroe, Dan Hillier, Elizabeth Waggett, Sara Pope, Ryan Callanan, Copyright and Bonnie and Clyde. Check out our eventbrite page for upcoming events. We have also exhibited a selection of never-seen-before, rare prints belonging to artrepublic owner, Lawrence, in a special showcase that has documented artrepublic’s long-standing roots at the forefront of the art scene and how contemporary art has evolved over the last 25 years. Then there was the time Fatboy Slim did a gig in the gallery to mark our 25th Birthday – See the video here Sources of Pop Art Our ‘Sources of Pop’ Rare Print Showcase welcomed the first Andy Warhol print to artrepublic gallery in an exciting curation of Pop Art prints from legendary artists who were instrumental in the Pop Art movement. Pop Art forms the basis of most of the work we have in our gallery and encompasses the ethos of artrepublic that art is for everyone and doesn’t have to be ‘high brow’ or hidden in meaning for it to be considered a work of art.  The event was a celebration of the Pop Art movement and the artists that have led the way for artrepublic such as Peter Blake, Andy Warhol and Robert Indiana.   Art yard sale This year's Art Yard Sale saw huge crowds once again meet their favourite contemporary artists at Jubilee Square, Brighton as part of our unique Art Yard Sale.  This growing art event gives everyone the chance to buy (and own) original, affordable limited-edition artworks direct from the artists who create them. Our next Art Yard Sale is set to be bigger and better than ever as we recruit new up and coming artists throughout the year to take part. Kids Club A chance for kids to get creative with one of our artists every 3rd Saturday of the month, our Kids Club has been hosted by the likes of Eddy Bennett, Sara Pope, Lucy Bryant, Sarah Arnett, Dave Towers, Jana Nicole and Rebecca Strickson and continues to be an unmissable event for families in Brighton. Spaces fill up quickly so make sure you follow the updates from our eventbrite page. Art Related Noise Specialising in all things arty and interesting, our regular podcast, ‘Art Related Noise’ provides a fascinating insight into our artists and the art world with some of the most genuine and unique artist interviews from across the UK. We recently recorded a panel talk with Dan Doherty (one half of Art + Believe) and Charlie Edwards (aka Pure Evil) at the Artist Residence Hotel in Brighton for a discussion on Street Art Vs Fine Art. Hosted by Stuart from the award-winning art blog, Inspiring City. Download this panel talk as well as interviews with artists such as Joe Webb, Ben Eine and Euan Roberts on Podbean Art as Resistance! Inspired by the creative protesting style of Extinction Rebellion, we hosted ‘Art as Resistance’ – a talk with esteemed lecturer at the University of Brighton, Katy Beinart, looking back at the role of art within protest groups throughout history to the present day. Guest were then given the chance to make their own printed banners and T-shirts with Extinction Rebellion. We hope this will be the first talk of many held at our gallery as we look to become a source of art knowledge and a base for community projects. We’re so grateful to be able to share all these special events with the artrepublic art lovers out there! A huge thank you to everyone that attended and helped make each event such a success and we look forward to seeing you at plenty more of the gallery’s unique and varied events in the near future!

    Join us on Fri 15th Nov for a new artwork release from Magnus Gjoen.  Also featuring a talk on Baroque Art – Tickets at eventbrite Previously a designer for Vivienne Westwood, Magnus Gjoen moved from the fashion industry into the world of print making and has quickly become one of the most up and coming artists in the contemporary art world. We are delighted to bring these exciting new pieces of artwork to the people of Brighton at the official launch night at artrepublic gallery – Book your place at eventbrite. ‘Heaven Lent You a Soul Earth Will Lend a Grave’ Breathing new life into a classic Baroque painting Gjoen presents a historic piece of art with a contemporary twist; a moving, 3D, lenticular print! Lenticular printing is a technique which uses several images sliced into strips and interlaced together. A plastic sheet containing a set amount of linear prism-like lenses is then placed on top, perfectly aligned with the images for the 3-dimensional effect to work. It has been used by artists from seventeenth century Royal portraits, to early corporate advertising and kitsch memorabilia to create the illusion of a 3D object within a frame. Available in 2 sizes, the lenticular prints will be unveiled on the night so you can experience their full glory in real life with a glass of bubbly in hand! “I try to create something new, but from something that already exists. The choice of paintings is usually something that evokes a sentiment or an emotion in me. Putting these with other objects not only beautifies the object but makes you look at it in a different light.” ‘Heaven Lent You a Soul Earth Will Lend a Grave’ is a modern reinterpretation of one of the greatest examples of Baroque painting – ‘The Triumph of Divine Providence (and the Fulfilment of its Purposes under Pope Urban VIII)’ by Petro da Cortona (1632-1639) in the Palazzo Barberini in Rome. Opulent and theatrical, the ceiling of Palazzo Barberini in Rome vibrates with the thrum of its 100 plus characters and is a masterpiece of seventeenth century painting and optical illusion. The original fresco plays with perspective whilst the modern form of the lenticular pushes this even further. Displaying a marketing savvy similar to today’s Instagrammer or social media expert, the Barberini ceiling offers a masterclass in self-promotion and propaganda, a recurring theme and comparison in Magnus’ work. An obsession with portraying oneself in the perfect light is something new that has come with the age of social media, but in fact humans have been doing so for centuries. Learn more about this fascinating subject at our event with Magnus Gjoen which will feature a talk on 'Baroque Art as Modern Art - Reflecting the times we live in' by award-winning contemporary artist, Iva Troj. Experience the startling beauty of the striking lenticular, learn more about the Baroque art movement and meet the artist himself who will also be bringing some original sculptures and prints exclusive to artrepublic. The following prints will be exclusive to artepublic and available for the first time on the night…   Don’t miss out – secure your place and book your free ticket through eventbrite   For more news stories and events visit our Brighton Gallery page $test =
