It’s been an exciting year so far, jam-packed with new releases, gallery openings and events. We’d like to share some of our best moments with you!
2019 certainly got off to a great start when 12-year-old Sam from St Faith’s School in Cambridge was awarded first prize in our Young Fine Artist competition for his Paul Kenton inspired cityscape. In May the competition was hosted by our Solihull gallery and Sam was the lucky winner.
In March, Paul Kenton launched his London / New York collection at Chase Contemporary in Chelsea, New York. After his spectacular success in the Big Apple, the exhibition moved to London and was displayed at our Covent Garden gallery.
Lawrence Coulson celebrated two decades with our publisher Washington Green with two new personalisable limited edition artworks and a book. Like the rest of Lawrence’s portfolio, this collection reflects his enduring love of the British countryside.
He adds: “The Celebration exhibition, tour and book is something that I am very proud of. It encompasses all that I and my work have become. Time has flown by and I don’t think I would change a single element of it. Here’s to another 20 years!”
We were thrilled to visit Dan’s studio and get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at his new collection, Modern Relics. He also shared an insight into his creative process.
He adds: "Over the last year, I have developed a technique of casting marble that gives it the right feel while also retaining the natural cracks and imperfections that are impossible to reproduce by painting. This alludes to my concept of these sculptures as a modern relic, as it gives the pieces a sense of age.”
Counting celebrities like David Caruso, Andre Agassi and Whitney Houston among his collectors is Romero Britto, who visited the UK to launch his new diamond dust limited edition artworks. As usual, he created a stir and dazzled everyone with his bold Pop Art creations.
Lorenzo Quinn took this year’s Venice Biennale exhibition by storm with his new installation, ‘Building Bridges’. His monumental sculpture depicts six pairs of hands symbolising help, love, friendship, faith, wisdom and hope. Standing at 15 metres above the shipyards, the installation embodies humanity’s universal values and sends a message of unity.
Lorenzo says: “It is about the future of our children and future generations. It is about humanity.”
29/04/2019Ahead of the launch of his new collection, we caught up with the self-taught landscape artist to find out about his 20-year anniversary with our publisher, live-painting events and dinner with Prince Philip!
14/06/2019Recently unveiled at the 58th Venice Biennale, Building Bridges is contemporary Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn’s most ambitious project to date.
10/06/2019The Miami-based artist’s inspiring story takes him from a modest upbringing in Brazil to rubbing shoulders with the A-list. We celebrate his career highlights upon the launch of his five new diamond dust editions.
