With Father's Day just around the corner, here are six gifts to help you show your dad the appreciation, gratitude, and love that he deserves. It is not the monetary value but the thought and sentiment behind a gift that makes it meaningful, so we have selected artworks to suit every budget.
Is your dad a sucker for a nice cold beer? Carl Stimpson's Red Stripe Top Misprint represents the much-loved beverage in a unique and innovative way and will bring your dad joy even when he doesn't have a beer in hand. We love the clever use of negative space and the purposeful misprint, as well as the bold forms and the accent of red, which accentuate the brand's logo. This piece is an absolute steal at £45 - making your dad happy has never been so easy!
Magnus Gjoen's Vive Le Roi series was created to commemorate the coronation of King Charles III. If your dad is interested in the traditions and role of the Royal family then he will love this archival pigment print, which celebrates a significant moment in British history. If you think he might prefer another colour - take a look at Magnus' Pink and Blue versions of the edition.
Witnessed your dad doing some embarrassing dancing to David Bowie's hits? The star motif in R-W Studio's latest print symbolises the music icon, the multi-coloured layers reflecting the many characters that he created and inhabited. Imagine how happy you would make your music-loving dad with this vivid and innovative interpretation of one of the musical greats.
Maxine Gregson's Celestial Swim blends vintage motifs and futuristic compositions. Does your dad obsess over all things retro? This 4 colour screen print is splendidly surreal and will appeal to sci-fi lovers too.
Do you have magical childhood memories of spending time outside in nature with your dad? If your dad loves the outdoors, he will really appreciate Rob Wass' Mountainscape on Wood, a mesmerising and intriguing representation of the mountains. If he is an active person, always on the move, then the dynamism of Rob's piece will resonate with him. This piece is extra special because it is printed on plywood rather than paper, and will look very at home in a more rustic and boho interior.
Is your dad a foodie? Gill Sheraton's illustrative style simplifies and reimagines familiar foods and punctuates her compositions with witty phrases and sayings. If your dad is known to apply excessive amounts of mustard, then Keen as Mustard will make his day. If his kitchen is in need of a bit of an interior refresh, then this piece will add a timeless burst of colour and energy.
