First of all, what is a remarque? This is a French term to describe a distinguishing mark on a print or proof. A remarqued print has a small original drawing or painting created by the artist, making it unique. Our exclusive selection of personalisable and remarqued artworks allows you to commission your favourite artists - including the humorous Peter Smith and painter Lawrence Coulson - to create a truly individual piece.
Interaction: how do you get that in a piece of art? That was my first question when I created Doctor Whoohoo. The idea for this edition was born from the fact that when you buy a piece of art, it never changes. My mind drifted off into wild daydreams about all the things I wanted but knew I would never get because they didn’t exist, like Willy Wonka’s chocolate river and lickable wallpaper. I decided to be a Willy Wonka of sorts, handing out no-holds-barred creations straight from your imagination. You can ‘wish’ your own piece of art.
Anything goes! Let your imagination run riot and push me to the limits: combine characters, give me one-word starts or create a brand-new superhero – it’s really up to you. I have received requests for drunken rainbow-farting unicorns, Buzz Lightyear/ Rocky Horror Show hybrids, a cat named Buttons, and Alice in Wonderland as an astronaut in the Guardians of the Galaxy world.
The more imaginative, the better – but anything I can create which has movement in its description is always good. Drunk unicorns, for example, give me an idea of how they will move, while a hip-thrusting Bungle from the popular children’s programme Rainbow both disturbs and excites me.
After two decades in the industry, Lawrence is always willing to try something different. For his new Celebration collection, he has created two remarqued editions: ‘Celebration’ and ‘Thunder In Our Hearts'.
Within the glowing horizons, you can request to add figures for Lawrence to paint in – capturing your family, friends or romance for an eternity.
