New Prints!

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

New year, new VAT! We’ve been busy framing lots of new stock for the gallery, we’ve started to invest in some nice classic and vintage prints to compliment the illustration we’ve been promoting over the years. These are all a little more affordable than some of the limited prints we regularly stock so you can still get some great pieces on your wall for your budget in this present economy. We’ve got some vintage adverts, B-movie posters, propaganda posters, music/rock prints as well as a few classic pop art and japanese woodblock illustration prints to name a few.

Fame Festival

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

I was lucky enough to attend the Fame Festival in Grottaglie, Italy last year, an amazing yearly International street art exhibition that takes over the whole town. I went with Lucy Mclaughlan and the Beat 13 gang who have been a regular contributers to this event, even ended up helping hang some of the exhibition. The festival is organised through the great independent screen print studio chromie, Needless to say on my return I ended up framing a few pieces that were produced as part of the event by a selection of renowned artists and illustrators, such as Blu, Eric the dog, Dave Kinsey and JR. Here’s some pics of the amazing work we framed, including an incredible 31 colour screenprint by Dalek.

Here’s a little film i made of our adventure, featuring some of the street pieces.

Incase you’ve visited and wondered, yes the sight has been pretty basic for a while and we lost a lot of content and information due to some virus/hacking trouble! (Thanks WordPress!?) We’re all update and secure again now and will be adding lots of new content and information. We’ve also just set up a Facebook page where you can follow us for news and interesting fun things in the world of framing.
