Oli Mumby’s stunning prints reimagine traditional landscapes, working in collage with paper cut outs to create layered designs. From tranquil scenes of lakes and forests to industrial city scenes, Oli’s intricate works find curiosity in everyday scenes. The artist is constantly questioning the importance of finding the beauty in overlooked scenes of nature, asking questions such as “how often do we look at filling stations, industrial buildings or road markings and see something more interesting?” Oli is dedicated to pulling out the detail within everyday, with the clean cuts and layered effect of his artwork inviting the viewer to lean in and explore more in each composition. Oli's prints celebrate the every day and are a great addition to any art collection.
Guy Gee’s charming compositions of postage stamps from around the globe are a true celebration of all cultures and places. With each stamp telling its own story, Guy’s prints make the perfect gift for a seasoned traveller, especially when given to remember a special trip or adventure. The London-based artist takes an experimental approach, merging boundaries between design and contemporary art.
Invented in 1840, the stamp is now emblematic of the importance of global communication. Guy scours through thousands of stamps in order to find the right design to add to his growing collection of prints. Each stamp is enlarged and digitally altered by the artist, creating a revitalised and contemporary take on the original hand-engraved stamp that are then printed and hand finished by Guy himself. The elegance and intricacy of Guy’s compositions are a testament to his love of and dedication to his craft.
