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.
‘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.
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.
‘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…
