    Discover an art form within an artwork, as the prolific British artist takes another look at the intricacies of decorative tattoos, and the vivid characters of those who have them. Most of us think that the popularity and acceptance of tattoos is a relatively recent phenomenon, and that prior to the contemporary surge in inked skin, only sailors, bikers and criminals underwent the needle. But that assumption is very wrong. If you saw last year’s exhibition Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed at the National Maritime Museum in Cornwall, you’ll have a better idea about the practice and origins of tattooing, including the fact that in some form, it reaches back as far as the Neolithic period. In different cultures, tattooing has different meanings and motives – from the spiritual to the decorative, and it has even been used as a form of punishment (Ancient Rome and Greece, we’re looking at you). It’s pretty fascinating to delve into, especially if you travel right up to the present day, where artists like Sir Peter Blake are drawing on tattoo culture within their artwork, and tattoo artists are, in turn, taking inspiration from the work of other visual artists (we’ve discussed Audrey Kawasaki’s impact on the Californian ink studios before). But back to Sir Peter Blake and his ink-based story. Long associated with portraiture, Blake started creating his Tattooed People series around 2015. The originals are small watercolours on paper, which depict a number of figures, of all genders, races, shapes and sizes, but the focus is on the intricate details that mark/ decorate their skin. Blake has recently added some new figures to the series, releasing a limited run of 75 prints of his ‘Tattooed Ladies’, some of which our artrepublic curators have secured for you. The print depicts two women – one black, one white – standing side-by-side and directly facing the viewer. They are clothed only by the inked images that adorn their skin; there’s all manner of cultural references here, from native American Indians to cowboys and pin-ups, cartoon characters to Chinese-influenced dragons. Considering the size of the originals, the detail is spectacular. There’s so much to take in that it’s hard to pull your gaze away. But tear yourself away you must, if you want to bring one of these prints home. Fans of the playful Tattooed People series will need to act fast to secure this print, as the signed giclee editions are in short supply. Drop by the gallery and speak to one of our art advisors, or call us on 01273 724829 to talk inked skin...or inked paper with us, alternatively email brighton@artrepublic.com.

So if you can’t make it down to our gallery in person you’ll no longer miss out on the stunning selection of prints on display! To find out more about any piece, please call our gallery on +44 (0)1273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com Take our tour at the artrepublic Brighton gallery page Here’s a brief round-up of some key pieces currently gracing our gallery walls… ‘Pink Moda’ by Bruce McLean One of the artists behind the conceptual art movement in Britain in the 1960s, Bruce McLean’s work is characterised by its balance of highly saturated colours and semi-abstract shapes. ‘Pink Moda’ – perhaps drawing meaning from the Italian for ‘fashion’ or ‘craze’ – brings together a section of a map of London, a water-like texture and a series of shapes and motifs to create an energetic image that hints at the artist’s take on the capital city. ‘Piranha’ by Dave White Think of piranhas and no doubt you’ll imagine a set of gnarling razor-sharp teeth. But Dave White’s silkscreen print, finished with diamond dust, offers a different view of the famed South American fresh-water fish. This piranha – fleshed out (no pun intended) using White’s dynamic, broad brushstrokes – isn’t baring his teeth, but still creates a powerful presence. Perhaps it’s time to take a new approach to our understanding of this family of fish, starting with this limited edition print. 'Such a Perfect Day' by David Spiller Fans of Tintin might recognise the central figures in this print by David Spiller; yes, it’s the detectives Thomson and Thompson, surrounded and scrawled over with the handwritten song lyrics, quotes and scribbles that Spiller uses to finish all of his Pop Art-style prints. This one takes its name from the Lou Reed lyrics that feature (along with some from the Beatles and The Wizard of Oz) within the final image. To find out more about any piece, please call our gallery on +44 (0)1273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com ‘Magda’ by Gary Hume Gary Hume will be the first to tell you that the longer you spend with his work, the more you get from it. This alluring lino cut print is no exception to the internationally renowned artist’s rule. Magda’s mood, as well as the lines and colours that Hume has used, subtly alters the more you observe her, making this a truly compelling piece of art. ‘Pink Door’ by Gavin Turk One of the famed YBA, Gavin Turk caught the attention of Charles Saatchi and the wider art world when the Royal College of Art refused to award him his degree because he presented a white studio space with a blue plaque saying ‘Gavin Turk worked here 1989-91’ as his final piece. Turk continues to make provocative installations and works today, often referencing Marcel Duchamp’s Ready Mades in his own art. This print, of a neon light formed into the shape of an open door, is one such example. Its interpretation is open for you. ‘Lamp and Kuan Ware’ by Patrick Caulfield From Patrick Caulfield’s ‘White Ware’ portfolio of eight screenprints, each created at Advanced Graphics, one of London's most respected fine art print workshops, ‘Lamp and Kuan Ware’ was inspired by the collection of oriental ceramics at London’s V&A museum. The simple elegance of the Sung Dynasty-era vase in the foreground offers Caulfield a way to explore the representation of light and shadow – a regular theme within the famous British artist’s work. ‘Lesson 1 Happiness’ by Bonnie and Clyde Brighton-based artist Bonnie and Clyde creates mixed-media collages that utilise photography from her travels, as well as tactile painted layers to create atmospheric and evocative scenes. ‘Lesson 1 Happiness’ draws on contemporary architecture and the lush hues of nature, working them together to form a textural and dynamic image that is packed with details for you to discover. ‘Jane Fonda – Bubblegum Pink’ by Pure Evil This image of actress, activist and former fitness guru Jane Fonda is part of graffiti artist Pure Evil’s Nightmare series, which was inspired by a strange email the artist received from a Chinese ‘copy village’ offering to reproduce famous artworks including those by Andy Warhol. Featuring Pure Evil’s trademark teardrop that streams from one of the celebrity’s eyes, this limited edition is one of 100 that have been signed and numbered by the artist. 'Happiness' by Benjamin Thomas Taylor London-based artist Benjamin Thomas Taylor is known for juxtaposing hyperreal landscapes with typographic statements and phrases in his images. In ‘Happiness’ the artist overlays a tropical rainforest-like scene with the word from which it takes its title. The typographical element draws on the style of a paint-by-numbers image – you’re left wondering if this was filled in with the designated colours, would happiness be complete or would it disappear? ‘Six Snapshots of Julie’ by Grayson Perry Self-described as a ‘chronicler of contemporary life’, Grayson Perry makes us look at the everyday anew, often with an extra dash of wit and sentimentality. This series of six limited edition etchings, depicting snapshots from the life of someone called Julie, is a great example of Perry’s print work; he tells a story of one person’s life via six snapshots of fleeting moments, from a picnic in a park to a trip to the Taj Mahal. There is no order or explanation, only an underlying sense of a potentially colourful life. These prints would make intriguing additions to your art collection. ‘Colour Splat Cloud (black)' by Ian Davenport This limited edition print by YBA Ian Davenport definitely needs to be seen in person to fully appreciate the finer qualities of its finish. Davenport picked up a Turner Prize nomination in 1991 for his abstract paintings, made up of layers of household paint poured, dripped and thrown on to tilted canvases. His screen prints, such as ‘Colour Splat Cloud’, maintain something of the vitality of the original making process – this image has an inherent sense of energy within it. ‘Sangora’ by Albert Irvin This limited edition screen print shows the bold colours (and spontaneous application) associated with English Abstract Expressionist painter Albert Irvin’s work. The artist claims his images do not depict particular places or things; he is quoted as saying ‘I like to think that rather than being pictures of the world they are pictures about it’ (warwick.ac.uk). ‘Sangora’, like many of Irvin’s works, is named for a street located near to the place he lives in London. To find out more about any piece, please call our gallery on +44 (0)1273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com ‘The Dazzle Alphabet’ (Box Set) by Peter Blake Sir Peter Blake has undertaken a number of series’ that focus on the letters of the alphabet over the years, but this particular typographic project takes inspiration from the razzle-dazzle painting style used to camouflage war ships in the First and Second World War. The colourful box set of the 26 letters of the alphabet, plus one blending I and J, looks incredible when hung as a complete sequence. 'There Are Some Dead Who Are More Alive Than The Living' by Magnus Gjoen Exclusive to artrepublic, this porcelain sculpture is the latest piece from artist Magnus Gjoen, whose work often blends the beautiful with the terrible, the powerful with the fragile. Here, a delftware-style pattern is overlaid on a ceramic skull, asking questions about the fine line between life and death, the physical and the spiritual. Each of the edition of 50 comes with a handmade presentation case. 'Caspian' by Brian Eno Known for his fusion of music and painting, Brian Eno’s images play with the senses – almost confusing the lines between them. ‘Caspian’ depicts a royal blue cube on an aqua-blue background, but with an aura around the smaller square which has the effect of adding depth and greater tactility. This etching – you might have assumed from the colour and subject matter that it was a giclee or screenprint – is from a limited edition of 25. 'Golden Requiem' by Dan Hillier An original (rather than a screen print or giclee print) by the well-known British artist Dan Hillier, ‘Golden Requiem’ is a glowing example of his intricate ink work and collage. Featuring a female figure who is interlaced with a forest-like canopy and the constellations in the sky above, and finished with gold leaf, this artwork carries a sense of a mysterious and mystical story waiting to be revealed. 'Mrs Smith' by Maria Rivans Think of holograms, and you get a sense of the finish of this 3D lenticular print by contemporary artist Maria Rivans, which depicts 1940s movie star Lana Turner adorned in an outfit and headdress embellished with creatures and organisms from the natural world. Referencing 1950s Pop Art, Rivans’ work is inscribed with her own playful sophistication. 'Fragility of Power' by Elizabeth Waggett Elizabeth Waggett’s work explores the relationship between value and purpose. Depicting animals, skulls and personal trinkets with photorreal finishes, Waggett’s images force us to look harder and more carefully to decipher what we see. Featuring a bull’s skull, its horns finished with gold leaf, ‘Fragility of Power’ shows the strength and vulnerability of its subject simultaneously. 'Untitled' by Minty Brighton locals may well be familiar with street artist Minty’s colourful paste-ups, which can be seen springing up around the city, often with the words ‘I love you’ worked into the image. ‘Untitled’ (from a limited edition of 15) pays homage to the work of Pop artist Roy Lichtenstein via its central character – a blonde woman – vibrant colour and use of Ben-Day dots. 'Rewild' by CJP A monochromatic palette focuses your attention on the intricate details of this work by CJP, which at first glance looks like a study of a pine cone. Well it is, but it’s also so much more – hidden in the layers of the pines there’s a tiny universe of animals waiting to be discovered. Take a closer look and tell us what you see. 'Capture' by Dan Baldwin Blending the innocent and the sinister, the world of reality and that of imagination, Baldwin’s artworks are filled with layers of detail – some of which only become visible when you become really familiar with each piece. In ‘Capture’ ferns and palm leaves, cacti and florals circle (or are circled by) deadly creatures and violent means of capture, all inked up in tones that we perceive as innocent. Visual trickery is at play here, and nothing is quite as it seems. 'Hell is Empty and All The Devils Are Here' by the Connor Brothers Working under the pseudonym and fictional backstory of The Connor Brothers, the two artists responsible for this piece play with familiar visual references/ book covers from the 1650s and 1960s, adding their own tongue-in-cheek titles to alter the original message. Fans of satire should pay attention to the large-scale works and limited edition prints that these artists produce. 'The Planets 2017' by Michael Craig-Martin Known for his distinctive pared-back depictions of everyday objects (and much more, besides) conceptual artist Michael Craig-Martin’s work is endowed with a playfulness that can’t be ignored. At first glance this limited-edition silkscreen print is a Pop-style depiction of a solar system, but you may want to revise that initial thought: the planets are, in fact, reimagined as sports balls. This piece never fails to bring a smile to our faces. To find out more about any piece, please call our gallery on +44 (0)1273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com 'His ‘N’ Hers' by Lucy Sparrow These three-dimensional cabinets of curiosity, crafted by artist Lucy Sparrow, are filled with meaning, as well as ‘products’. Although the colourful felt-crafted pieces have a childlike charm, Sparrow’s work travels with messages of desire – both consumer and sexual. ‘His ‘N’ Hers’ offers a side-by-side view of the gendered nature of bathroom cabinets, and the industries beyond that create them. Compare and contrast. 'Alphabet - Circus XL' by Ben Eine A feature on the streets and shutters of London (particularly the east of the city) Ben Eine’s creative, recognisable typographies have made him a well-known figure on the Street Art scene – Barack Obama even owns one of his works. This particular alphabet (which in Eine tradition misses out the letter ‘W’) uses his Circus style lettering and gains extra depth from its lenticular printing. 'The Cure - Powder Pink/Lollypop Red/Golden Yellow' by Damien Hirst A limited edition from the boundary pushing British artist Damien Hirst, ‘The Cure’ depicts a single pharmaceutical capsule, marked with the direction ‘This way up.’ The silkscreen print is printed using three inks – powder pink, lollypop red and golden yellow – colours whose names are as suggestive as the image itself. 'From Primrose Hill' by Jason Lilley The view from London’s Primrose Hill is pretty jaw-dropping in real life, but it’s just as beautiful in Jason Lilley’s limited edition print. The desaturated foreground, and warm gold-finished sky blend to create an image of the UK’s capital city that conjures up ideas of the futuristic visions of the past. Think mid-century sci-fi and you’re with us. 'Pop Goes New York II' by Dirty Hans Superheroes – both fictional and real – walk the streets of New York, or look down from billboards, in this complex and eye-opening Pop-style piece from contemporary artist Dirty Hans. We’d almost believe it was a photograph of the Big Apple, if not for the collection of film characters found in the scene! 'God Save Us All' by Jamie Reid You may have recognised the hand of Jamie Reid in this piece before you clocked his name in the caption – there are links with his famous Sex Pistols cover art, depicting Queen Elizabeth II with a safety pin through her nose to offset some of the crown jewels! Now, Donald Trump gets a Reid makeover – with swastika buttons for eyes – in this powerful and politically-charged limited edition print. 'Marilyn' by David Studwell Nostalgia for the world-renowned stars of the Sixties and Seventies are brought to life in the work of David Studwell, who endows his prints with star quality and bold colours. Marilyn Monroe receives this treatment in this limited edition print, which combines lines with a soft midnight blue background. 'Magritte' by Mr Brainwash Created by the star of Street Art film Exit Through The Gift Shop Mr Brainwash (who is also known as Banksy’s protege), this print plays on a famous image by one of the original surrealists, Rene Magritte. A portrait of the Belgian artist is silkscreened over a mixed-media collage, created using cartoon strips – perhaps a homage to the famed image where mini Magrittes float in the sky with umbrellas behind the man himself. 'Rainbow Target' by Peter Blake Bringing his prints and 2-D collages into the third dimension, Sir Peter Blake’s ‘Rainbow Target’ draws on some of his favoured motifs – hearts and rainbows. The limited edition relief disc, which is vacuum formed using plastic before being hand-painted, is signed by the artist. 'Armageddon' by Harland Miller Hinting at the scuffed covers of well-loved Penguin books, Harland Miller’s work is plays with his two passions – the visual and the linguistic. ‘Armageddon’ uses both block printing and etching to create a striking, vibrant image, complete with a (we hope) tongue-in-cheek question about the end of the world as we know it: ‘Is it too much to ask?’ To find out more about any piece, please call our gallery on +44 (0)1273 724829 or email brighton@artrepublic.com 'Copper Beech Web Purple & Pink' by Rob Wass With work that centres around and focuses in on the natural world, Rob Wass is known for his organic-looking images. 'Copper Beech Web’ is a two-colour screen print of a gnarly tree trunk, which the artist has hand-finished with coloured inks, to create the foliage. 'L-Isoleucine T-Butyl Ester' by Damien Hirst Named for a chemical, this limited edition wood cut print forms part of Damien Hirst’s wider Spot series – each featuring a series of colourful spots arranged in a gridded pattern. This piece is from an edition of only 55. 'Crossed Wave' by Kai & Sunny A series of mesmerising lines draw the eye right to the heart of this piece by duo Kai & Sunny, who create all of their intricate works by hand. The longer you look at this screenprint, the more patterns emerge, so you go from seeing the rings of a tree trunk’s cross-section to something altogether different. 'New Musical Express XL' by Mark Vessey Inspired by the design and strong visual identity of the now-extinct NME magazine, Vessey created a limited edition print for artrepublic. The spines of the magazine provided a unique way to tell the story of music culture – you’ll find the likes of The Clash, Nirvana, Radiohead, The Manic Street Preachers, Bob Dylan and The Who referenced in this stack of back issues.

    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 =

VeeBee is an artist whose true identity has been kept hidden, despite becoming one of the most popular artists at artrepublic.

'Kate Moss - Glow' Silkscreen Print, 70x70cm from a limited edition of 50 and priced at £285! ‘I want you to have my work on your wall, not based on who I am, where I have studied or where I have exhibited my work.

Over the years Moss has played muse to a huge number of acclaimed artists, with her striking looks and glamorous aura informing works by Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Mr. Brainwash, Banksy, Lucian Freud and more.

  • Works In Our Brighton Gallery To Celebrate Pride

    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.

    An exquisite nostalgic series from the Godfather of Pop Art. Newly enforced UK laws have recently changed all cigarette and tobacco packaging to a new nondescript design, in a bid to curb the harmful habit. As a result of this, we couldn’t help but think of the artistic merit that can be found in Sir Peter Blake’s wonderfully nostalgic 'found art' series, that explores vintage cigarette packets. 'Laurens' Peter Blake Cigarette Packets Currently - Available online or at our Brighton gallery. Red Band In the large scale editions, Blake has taken his fascination and obsession with found objects and ephemera to an entirely new level by blowing up 1950s era cigarette packets. He has enlarged the size, exposing the overlooked cracks, blemishes and details of the packet allowing the viewer to interpret the object as a piece of art. Winstons Blake explains, “I mean in a way it’s the audacity in a Duchampian sense of just saying ‘this image is nice enough to make a print from’ so I’m stealing and appropriating all the time. The cigarette packets come out of that series, but there’s no end to it. I mean there are literally millions of things that if you scan them and make them 50 times bigger, they’re beautiful because of the technology.” “You are touching the object, so the scanner is seeing things that the human eye can’t see. The bigger you take it, the clearer it becomes. So something like a flag, each thread appears, and then on each thread, threads appears from that, so it’s almost infinity.” - Sir Peter Blake Nazionali To create each of the impressive prints Blake had to look no further than his studio, sifting through his collection of vintage cigarette packets collected over the years, then flattening them out on the floor. Phillip Morris The simple, elegant and retro designs were then scanned using very high-resolution methods that allow all of the imperfections to be retained. Printed by the master practitioners at Coriander Print Studio and hand embellished with silver foil blocking for added visual allure, these wonderful editions see now obsolete brands like ‘Nazionali', 'Laurens’ and ‘Phillip Morris’ rendered as exquisite and collectable fine art print. Picture Show - also part of Blake's 'Found Art' Series We’re very pleased to be able to offer several of Peter Blake cigarette packets through our Brighton Gallery. Each of these prints is rare and highly sought after, so to add a piece of nostalgic magic to your collection don’t hesitate to give us a call on 01273 724829! $test =

    Three years after her hit debut ‘Cornershop’ the queen of felt has taken on the USA. We are very excited to announce the opening of Lucy Sparrow’s incredible new installation ‘8 Till Late’, this week in New York City. The exhibition is the culmination of over half a year of planning and work, with Sparrow hand crafting and painting over 8000 individual items, commonly found in corner stores, from her signature material of felt. Opening on Monday 5th June and running for four weeks, 8 Till Late transforms a 1200-square-foot space off The Standard, High Line’s Biergarten on Little West 12th Street into a fully stocked felt convenience store, unleashing the playful, parallel universe of one of the UK’s most exciting artists on New York City’s ultra-hip Meatpacking District. Felt fittings, freezers and fixtures will overflow with every product you would expect to find in a classic Manhattan bodega—from candy to cereal, frozen pizza to Band-Aids—all hand-stitched in the inimitable Lucy Sparrow style. Lucy will be present throughout the exhibition to aid any shoppers and generally ensure her that bodega is run to her exacting standards. Lucy Sparrow's American goods cabinet 'Such A Sad Time' is available in our Brighton Gallery. It contains various colourful US deli good and grocery store items, from Heinz ketchup bottles to Jif peanut butter jars; tins of corned beef and packets of pasta; mayonnaise and canned chicken. In our Brighton gallery, we have a number of Lucy’s limited edition cabinets that are hugely popular and sought after by visitors to the gallery and collectors alike. For further information into any of the works available just ask a member of our gallery team. Taking over six months to research, create and install, Lucy Sparrow says of her latest project; “It’s massively exciting to be able to bring the felt to the USA. Creating all of these iconic American brands has been brilliant and I can’t wait to see the reaction from local people on seeing a felt world full of their favourite treats and hangover cures!” Watch this space for further news and exclusive content from the show. Also, keep an eye out for our forthcoming interview with Lucy that took place just days before she flew out to set up the show. 8 TILL LATE will be open daily from 8am-8pm, June 5th to 30th, 2017 at The Standard, High Line at 69 Little West 12th Street, New York, NY, 10014. 'For Richer, For Poorer' - luxury goods cabinet available and on display in our Brighton Gallery.

    Relive some of the magic from the daylong art extravaganza. We'd like to say a huge thank you to all of the artists, visitors and organisers for making the Art Yard Sale 2017 our biggest and most successful event to date. Despite rain early in the morning, we had a glorious day of sunshine, as the clouds made way for beautiful blue skies. As in previous years there was a strong contingent of hardcore art fans and avid collectors who were patiently waiting from 9 am for the sale to officially open at 11 am on the dot. The buzz continued all the way up until 5 pm when the sale finished. Hundreds of happy customers left with affordable new works of art for some of the biggest names in the game. Yard Sale regulars including Ben Eine, Pure Evil, RYCA, Bonnie and Clyde, Maria Rivans, Joe Webb, Eelus and many more all provided the visitors with a feast of affordable art goodies and collectables. We have plenty of exclusive content from the day including photos and video interviews with several of the artist coming up. Watch this space for more coming very soon! $test =
