Magnus Gjoen creates striking artwork full of contradictions: evocative and glamorous yet eerily macabre. The artist often explores the relationship between power and the fragility of life through his work, juxtaposing these two states to create maximum visual and conceptual effect. Magnus’s ‘Live Free or Die’ is an exclusive artwork to Art Republic, featuring a soldier on a leaping horse about to break out of frame, with imagined broken glass. Magnus’s philosophy on art and life is simple, yet impressive: “It’s about beauty, and seeing beauty in things and places you wouldn’t expect to find it.” To see more of Magnus’s work or Art Republic’s exclusive monsters collection, click here.
Richard Heeps’ photography demonstrates his true love of and empathy for his subject manner. His distinct saturated style shuns the need for digital manipulation and pushes the boundaries of photography. The seductive colour palette and relaxed subject matter of Richard’s work is a true love letter to the art of photography and the carefree American lifestyle. ‘Sun Kissed Wendy’ comes from Heeps’ Man’s Ruin series and captures Wendy at the Rockabilly Weekender, Viva Las Vegas. Although taken in 2001, this artwork was not printed until March 2021 in the artist’s darkroom. For more of Richard Heeps’ photographs, check them out here.

Charlie Haydn Taylor
By collaging with cut-out figures from the 1950s and placing them within bold modern interiors, Charlie creates a striking visual paradox between the intimate space of the home and the isolated nature of his figures. The artist regularly tackles society’s most pressing issues along with references to other artists, such as Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, and Michelangelo. ‘I Just Feel So Alone Amongst the Crowds’ is an exclusive artwork depicting a tube carriage with cut-out figures and modern references, such as online dating sites, current news, and feelings of isolation post-covid lockdown.

Heath KaneWith a background in commercial art and a love of urban art, Heath Kane creates straightforward yet profound social commentaries. He focuses on making simple, iconic pieces that evoke an emotional response. We love the playful Pop appropriation of characters and the tongue in cheek nature of his work. ‘Rich Enough to be Batman - Blue and Gold Dollar Sign’ depicts the Queen wearing a Batman mask, provoking questions about wealth and social contribution. This artwork is part of his larger Rich Enough to be Batman collection which “raises questions about wealth and social justice, through the idea that with enough money anyone can be a superhero.” Check out Heath Kane’s entire collection here.
Margate based artist Charlie Evaristo-Boyce travels extensively to find inspiration, eventually producing colourful, detailed artworks related to the experience of everyday life. On the question of what inspires him and his artwork, he has said: “I am inspired by the soup imagery that surrounds us all, images and ideas can come from every direction of everyday life.” ‘Amazing Red (Poster)’ is a handprinted typographic artwork with a positive message. This print is perfect for all of the amazing people in your life. To explore more of Charlie’s work, click here.
