View our collectable art highlights for June 2014 by taking a walk around the walls of our artrepublic gallery. Gallery team member Amy Fonseca takes you through three fantastic art works including a brilliant edition by Mike Edwards, a beautiful Charming Baker piece and an outstanding Ben Eine giclee.
Mike Edwards ‘Morrissey’ – It’s a giclee signed limited edition of 50. Mike Edwards is known for using text and symbols to create stunning visual images. He draws inspiration from contemporary media, Pop Art and rock ‘n’ roll music. Mike Edwards is a local Brighton artist. One of his pieces signed by David Bowie raised £22,000 in a charity auction! He has previously created prints of Bridgitte Bardot, Jo Strummer and David Bowie – we’re excited to see who’s next!
Charming Baker ‘Dignity Rides a Tricky Pony’ – This is a giclee and silkscreen print, signed limited edition of 200. He’s a British artist based in London who graduated from Central Saint Martins College. He calls himself a traditionalist. His work is often humorous with witty titles exploring the relationship between humans and animals. He’s had a string of sell out shows internationally.
Ben Eine ‘See No Evil’ – This is a signed limited edition print of 140. It’s a ten colour giclee print with diamond dust which gives it a really beautiful finish. This piece is from his recent show in New York which was a complete sell out. Ben Eine is one of London’s most prolific graffiti and street artists. He’s well known for his giant letters and words spread over the walls and shop shutters of East London. He’s a very collectible artist and his prints are very hard to get hold of.
