"Elvis" - Matt Wood




Matt Wood – “Elvis”

UNIQUE ORIGINAL PAINTING

Media: dulux paint
Surface: board

Elvis Aaron Presley was an American musician and actor. A cultural icon, he is widely known by the single name Elvis. He is often referred to as the "King of Rock and Roll" or simply "the King".

£950


image size: 80 x 120 cm.


He's all fingers and thumbs
Emerging artist, and celebrity favourite, Matt Wood has a unique and exciting talent...he paints with his thumbs.

This is not finger painting as you would imagine, this is far more advanced. Matts unique technique means he can create photo-realistic paintings with just a foamexboard and some Duluxtrade paint.

To date Matt has been commissioned to produce images for a number of celebrities including Chris Martin from Coldplay and Louise Redknapp who asked for a painting of her son.
Matt has never formally studied art, but has always been interested in producing images and art work that would reflect his passion for sport, music and film.

Matt first realised his talent when he noticed how bare the walls of his first year halls of residence bedroom were, and he didnt really like any of the posters on offer.

His father works for a sign business, so Matt used materials that his father had at home to create his first few pieces of artwork.
Recently Mattcompleted a piece for Louise Redknapp, wife of talented ex-footballer Jamie Redknapp, of their son Charlie.
Louise Redknapp commented: Matt has a real talent that is so unique. The picture of Charlie he has created is truly brilliant, and will have pride of place in our family home.
With his thumb print as his signature and such a unique talent, it is well worth snapping up a limited edition print before they all sell out!

Pigs Might Fly - Doug Hyde



Doug Hyde - Pigs Might Fly


£395

Framed limited edition on paper of 295

image size 14" x 21" 
 framed size 21" x 33"

Born in Bristol in 1972, Doug became aware of his artistic talent at an early age. Throughout his school and college education he concentrated on the technical side of drawing and painting, but after graduation he was in no doubt as to his chosen career, that of a professional artist.
Doug prefers to produce his distinctive artwork on a large scale, in order to achieve maximum impact with each piece. He also enjoys operating in plenty of space, thus allowing himself enough physical freedom to express the creative energy that is the key to his fresh, contemporary style. His unorthodox use of pastels applied with fingers and thumbs or even the side of a hand or wrist allows him to create highly communicative and engaging images that make an immediate and lasting impression on the viewer.
Recently named as the UK's official best selling artist, Doug has been featured on television both on the BBC national news and on Channel 4 as well as on local television and local and national radio describing his unique technique and talking about the people and events that inspire his heart-warming images. Inspired by his own emotional responses to life, Doug's intention is to provoke a positive response in others; his success in this aim can be seen not only by the huge impact his work has made on the British and international art scene, but also by the money he has raised for two important charities – “Look Good…Feel Better” and Families for Children” - through the sale of his artwork. The extraordinary rise from virtual unknown to the most popular living artist in the UK has been meteoric, and his stunning original pastels have become genuine collectors' items.

Henderson Cisz - City Living Book Gift Set



Henderson Cisz - City Living Book Gift Set

Limited Edition Book Gift Set of 595

£295.00

Includes 4 mounted limited edition colour prints of London, New York, Paris and Venice
Image Size - 8" X 8" (20cm X 20cm)
and a certificate of authentication.




London-based Brazilian Henderson Cisz is a globally renowned artist, acclaimed for his paintings of the modern cityscape. He has a distinctive talent for recreating the spirit of whichever location he paints. Included in his inspirational works are scenes of popular tourist spots in London, Paris, Venice and New York.
Henderson Cisz was born in 1960 in Brazil and during his growing years, he lived in a small village called Mandaguacu which is in close proximity to Maringa. Though it was clear from a young age that Henderson had a gift for painting, the artist at that time didn't think of making it his vocation. He instead pursued a career in banking bank whilst continuing to paint for pleasure.
Midway through the 1980s, Henderson was convinced of his preference and passion for art. His relocation to London in 1986 to learn painting was probably the start of a full-time dedication to painting. Henderson is a seasoned traveller and loves globetrotting and urban life. He has travelled to Europe, South America, and Australia. His nomadic past has influenced not just his lifestyle but also his artwork. Henderson enjoys painting the variety and drama of urban life. In fact, he is recognised as the international artist of urban style.
Henderson paints in oil, watercolour or acrylic on canvas, aided by numerous photographs he has captured of each location. His powerful, stylish interpretations capture the unique personality, vitality and pace of each place. Henderson's painting style is uninhibited, and uses soft, cool tones to put across the right atmosphere. The impact of weather on the look of the urban environment is something which Henderson loves and brings out in his works. Henderson says these words about rain, the effect of which he really likes: "Not only does it cast interesting shadows and reflections on the slick sidewalks, but it also dictates the stance of the figures. Their slightly defensive postures and hunched shoulders lend a very specific, and to my mind curiously engaging, mood to the overall scene." Henderson considers the ocean to be a spring of happiness and inspiration.
"Paris en Nuit," "Whitehall, London," "New York, New York," "Yellow Cab," and "San Francisco Dawn," and "Street Scene, Paris" are some of the works in his 'Urban Style' collection.
When not travelling, Henderson Cisz passes most of his time working in his chaotic London studio, the wall of which bears disorderly spatters of paint. He has been fortunate to get such titles as Best Up and Coming Artist, Artist of the Year, and Best-selling Artist. In the Art Business Today Best-Selling Images Poll 2007 sponsored by EPSON, he garnered the top position. His paintings are a regular sight at both London galleries and global art fairs.

Daydreamer - Anna Razumovskaya




Anna Razumovskaya - Daydreamer

Limited Edition Embellished Canvas on Board. Edition No. 12/195

£595

Image Size: 24" x 24"
Framed Size: 32" x 32"

This limited edition canvas on board by Anna Razumovskaya comes in a publishers frame and mount and includes the publishers Certificate of Authenticity.
 The picture will be shipped using a secure signed for next day courier service.

With her classic figurative forms, highly acclaimed Russian artist, Anna Razumovskaya magically captures the lyrical romanticism of renaissance portraiture, while creating art that is completely modern and original. Anna Razumovskaya is inspired by the graceful elegance of the female form, at turns, classically alluring, demure and provocative. Her art has a pervasive sense of ‘romanticism’, and the passionate and dynamic application of paint on the canvas and the artist’s signature use of expressive colour, combine to create her uniquely recognisable style.


Anna Razumovskaya is a graduate of the Russian State University For Arts, where she was awarded the distinction of high-class artist in 1991. Subsequently, she studied art in Germany, Belgium and Holland. With solo exhibitions in New York, Paris, Toronto, Amsterdam, Antwerp and Berlin and numerous works in private collections across the globe, she has become one of the most exciting and collectable artists on the contemporary scene.Born at the height of the cold war, Anna was exposed to very different worlds, that of the austere communist regime alongside the sophistication and femininity of her fashion-conscious mother. She excelled at art school, and enjoyed the freedom of learning and perfecting her technique in a variety of different media. Of particular interest to her were the portrait masters of the late 19th Century, John Singer Sargent, the Russian painter Valentin Serov, and earlier masters such as Peter Paul Rubens and Rembrandt. She travelled around Europe absorbing the influences of artists past and present, and finally settled in Canada which she now feels to be her true home.“Quickly, easily, brightly: this is the way I draw, the same way I live. My art is a reflection of my life, a reflection of myself…” Anna Razumovskaya

Ocean Elements I - Ben Payne



Ben Payne – Ocean Elements I (original oil on canvas)

£950

image size: 20" x 30"

framed size: 27" x 37"

This original oil on stretched canvas by Ben Payne, comes professionally mounted and is framed with a thick brushed aluminium frame and includes the publishers certificate of authenticity.

Ben Payne has built a reputation for creating artwork which is fresh, escapist and above all, uplifting. Born in Surrey in 1975, he began drawing portraits and painting as a hobby; by the age of 16 he was selling his work, and he has now developed into a major British talent. Although he is almost completely self-taught Ben is able to respond to challenges and create artwork that is both technically accomplished and highly accessible.
Ben’s degree from Southampton University is a world apart from his artistic life, yet the influence of his academic and professional background can be observed in his art. After graduating in Psychology he became an independent therapist and pursued a career in the field of Autism, working with young children, helping them to overcome their difficulties in communicating with the outside world. Whilst pursuing this career he continued painting in his spare time, teaching himself and extending his range into oils.
Ben’s high-impact land, sky and seascapes are inspired by the landscapes and coastlines around the world. He owes an artistic debt to a range of artists, in particular Turner and Whistler. Their influence can be seen in the way he captures the appearance of clouds with such delicacy, while employing a vivid and dramatic palette – a characteristic which lends his work an ethereal quality.
Ben believes that working with children has taught him to value simplicity and to communicate in a very direct and accessible language. His powerful paintings do display a certain innocence which somehow sets them part from the work of his contemporaries. While his subjects are realistic they often have dreamlike overtones, rendering them an intriguing combination of enchantment and sophistication.
