CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS, 2016

Our gift shop has launched! And just in time for the festive season…

 

At artrepublic, we think that art is the best gift you can give - pick the right piece and it becomes a treasure, a special symbol of friendship or love, that they’ll keep forever. Picking the piece, though, isn’t always easy. It can be hard to trawl through volumes of prints, without that specific something in mind. Fortunately, at artrepublic, our gift shop has been expertly curated to give you a carefully hand selected range of the very best. And to make things even simpler, we’ve broken down the selection of our favourite pieces into bitesize categories. So whether you’re looking for him or for her, for the kids, or with a budget in mind, we’ve got it covered. Christmas shopping just got creative…

Here’s a peek at some of the pieces we’ve chosen for you. To see the full range, don’t forget to head to the gift shop.

For Her


‘Making a Bee-Line’, by sought after contemporary artist Louise McNaught, is one of our favourite pieces at artrepublic, with its innovative approach to found materials and its aptitude for colour and compositional technique. Both eye-catching and conceptually provocative, while brimming with charm and a little tongue-in-cheek frivolity, ‘Making a Bee-Line’ is the perfect piece for her, whether she’s art lover or novice.

For Him


Contemporary artist Dave White is known for his exceptional animal prints, which have won him widespread acclaim across the art world. We defy anyone not to adore his magnificent ‘Lion’ print. Rich in detail and brimming with texture, White brings the figurative and the abstract into perfect union, reworking the raw energy of Abstract Expressionism - with dynamic paint splatters, drips and strokes - into stunning representation. This is contemporary print making at its best - and he’s sure to fall in love with it.

For Kids


‘I am not a bunny’, by Simone Lia, makes the perfect Christmas gift for the kids. Both boys and girls will love the cute-sy aesthetic, and it’s a great introduction to contemporary art: although Lia is indulging in a naive charm, her work is carefully tuned to the power of minimalist composition and the role of humour in modern art. Just make sure you do hand it over to the kids on Christmas day - the temptation to keep this one for the grown-ups is all too great…

Limited Editions Under £100


At artrepublic we specialise in limited edition prints by well known artists, each one hand signed and dated. It’s also important to us that these pieces are affordable and accessible, so we've put together a range of beautiful limited edition prints that come in at under £100. ‘Proud Trooper’ by contemporary illustrator Richard Berner is from a limited edition of just 50 and is available for only £85. Bold, bright and beautiful, Berner’s print is oozing aesthetic charm - the perfect gift on a budget.

Still concerned about the risk of investing in that beautiful piece of art and it being just not quite right? We completely understand - which is why you can purchase gift vouchers from us for as little as £10. With 12 months to redeem them, your special someone will have the wonderful experience of exploring our extensive catalogue of originals, limited editions and prints by contemporary and historical artists. We also have a fantastic range of art books for sale, if you're looking for stocking fillers - a great way to give art without the price tag!
