You never know who or what is around the corner - and quite literally that was the case on Friday afternoon. Whilst putting work together for our forthcoming Art Trail on 2 December, David Wightman walked in the door and got chatting about some of our Artists, including Anna Marrow, Delphine Lebourgeois and Natalie Ryde who he knows from showing together at The Other Art Fair recently.
As luck would happen, David lives locally in East Dulwich and so our chance encounter has now led to us stocking his print both online and at our print showcase at Hawkins framing shop on Lordship Lane, East Dulwich SE22. Map
So, watch this space for further news of David's. His prints will be available to view later this week but you can see all available prints on our website here.

Opening today is a new show of prints and original paintings by Artist and Printmaker Martin Grover whose work has been gaining great popularity in recent years, particularly in South London where much of his work is often referred to.
A former student of the Royal Academy, Martin has consistently produced intriguing and beguiling work. A playful narrative thread runs through his work, at one moment a little dark and woebegone and the next humorous and whimsical but always alluring.
Working from life, sketches, memory and photographs Martin reconstructs ephemeral scenes from the passing world. Childhood recollections, minor street incidents, slightly surreal radio traffic bulletins, brief news items, poems, short stories, Brockwell Park landscapes, the enigmatic allure of sheds and shelters are all recalled and captured with clarity and wit. At other times in a more trompe l’oeil (trick of the eye) style he produces very flat still lives of old records in their tattered sleeves and un-coordinated second hand shirt and tie sets.Continue reading
Scottish Artist Natalie Ryde has been working hard over this year developing a new body of work. Working both on original drawings ranging in scale, from very small to gigantic, Natalie has also translated her work to create limited edition screenprints.
This is a recent development in Natalie's work, allowing her to create multiples of her work and to explore the potential of vivid colour and textures working with her intricate line work. These works have warped grid structures which Natalie says 'are based on the idea of a Quilted Multiverse, where parallel universes are created to live out the consequences of every decision'. Natalie continues by saying 'I was trying to comprehend the idea and started making drawings of repeated squares with slightly different contents. As they developed, I played with curves in the grids to better imagine them as flexible, like a fabric quilt'

We have a one-off opportunity to purchase an Artist Proof 'Fun City' by Anna Marrow which was originally created to show during the London Design Festival in 2015. Originally printed on to plywood - this is ready to hang on the wall and requires no framing. 'Fun City' includes elements of the popular 'Magic in the Metropolis' and 'Ghost Rider' with some additional 'random' elements added for fun by Anna.
This is the only one that was printed on to wood and it is currently hanging in the Volcano Coffee Works at Parkhall, 40 Martell Road, SE21. As it has been on display and moved a number of times we are offering it at a discounted price. The size of is 120 x 100 cm and is priced at £600, reduced from £750.
Due to its weight it is only suitable for solid walls and cannot be hung on partition walling unless from the struts. Please do contact us to discuss viewing the piece whilst it is still available.
Now available to buy online and through our south London studio are two new prints by Anna Marrow 'Silver Birch' and 'Gold Finches'.
