Here’s a great example of boxing off the glass form the print, a very popular finish, particularly good for keeping the glass off expensive highly finished prints.

I could write an S.A. on here about how great Lucy is but I’ll just mention we do a lot of framing for her, amazingly talented local lass, up to all sorts of projects and exhibitions all over the world, she’s represented by POW as well, as if her personal credentials and achievements aren’t enough, Banksy is digging her too! We also have a few of her prints available in Studio 4 gallery.
We get a lot of street art prints through our doors for framing, being friends of a few well known street artists and having framed for folks like Lazarides gallery, Scrawl Collective, Stolen Space Gallery, Fame and Pictures on Walls we have a good reputation for framing these prints. These are a couple of Faile prints we had come through a while back, love their work, check out boneyard project they were recently involved with.
A nice print we framed by the infamous Parisian Street artist Invader
Another nice Banksy print that came though our doors
Handled this print very carefully! Just conservation framed this Ltd Signed Banksy print, framed a few of these over the years, we even used to stock Banksy ages ago when his prints sold for under £100, always a bit scary these days his work fetches silly money!
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.
And this is an animation done by the incredibly talented Blu, made in an abandoned monestary in Grottaglie, during a previous years festival.
Because of our gallery (studio4) and links with the street art/alternative illustration scene we regularly frame prints and pieces by infamous artists such as Banksy. Here is an original piece by Banksy that we (very carefully) framed from a section of wall removed from a warehouse in LA. Painted at the time of his Barely Legal exhibition in 2006, which featured the famous elephant in the room installation.
