Artmani Final  Contrast   Screen  Print  on  Aluminium  Edition  of  Two   80  cm  x  120  cm   £850     Artmani   is   the   resident   protégé   artist   of   Graffik   Gallery’s   ever   expanding   tribe   of   highly   talented   urban   artists.   In   2010   Artmani   first   burst   on   the   art   scene   with   exhibitions   at   The   Courtauld   Gallery   as   part   of   the   London   2012   Cultural   Olympics   followed   by   shows   in   Graffik   Gallery   and   the   Red   Bull   Studios.   Artmani’s   work   explores   the   trends   and   pressures   adopted   by   modern   society,   whilst   satirically   examining   the   mechanics   of   capitalism   and   alleged   democracy.   His   urban   style   is   not   constrained   by   spray-­‐paint   but   is   combined   with   screen-­‐printing   and   a   myriad   of   techniques,  promoting  a  sense  of  Pop  Art  culture  throughout  the  work.      

Bungle Gaga   Spray  Paint  &  Freehand  on  Canvas     50  cm  x  70  cm   £1,000  (framed)  

  Bungle   takes   the   iconic,   famous,   beautiful,   glamorous   and   the   unremarkable   and   creates  an  image  with  meaning  either  hidden  or  unashamed  as  he  looks  to  question   things  we  see  in  our  daily  lives.            

Charlie Anderson   Animal  Source   Acrylic,  Emulsion  and  Spray  Paint  on  Paper   90  cm  x  64  cm   £1,250  (framed)     Since   graduating   in   2009,   Charlie   Anderson   has   pissed   off   art   collectors,   curators,   graffiti  writers,  three  world-­‐renowned  artists,  been  threatened  by  a  leading  London   gallerist,  and  has  been  punched  in  the  face  by  an  artist  from  Edinburgh.  He  has  also   won   the   British   Airways   travel   prize   (2009),   been   short   listed   for   the   Jerwood   Contemporary   Painters   (2010),   been   awarded   the   Meyer   Oppenheim   prize   by   the   Royal   Scottish   Academy   (2010).   Charlie   recently   has   been   commissioned   Ring   Starr   and   by   boxing   legends   Ricky   Hatton   and   Amir   Khan   in   association   with   the   Knot   Violence  Foundation.   Charlie   Anderson’s   work   explores   contemporary   culture   through   the   sampling   of   the   imagery   taken   from   advertising,   political   campaigns   and   the   music   industry,   and   reflects   the   weathered   and   layered   effect   of   outdoor   billboards,   which   he   re-­‐creates   through   the   sole   use   of   paint.   Anderson’s   paintings   are   included   in   several   international  collections.  

David Lee   Abraham  Lincoln   Enamel  paint  on  Canvas   69  cm  x  90  cm   £900    

David Lee   James  Dean   Enamel  paint  on  Canvas   80  cm  x  90  cm     £900                    

David Lee   Marilyn  Monroe   Enamel  paint  on  Canvas   61  cm  x  91  cm   £900  

Born   in   1949   in   Doncaster,   South   Yorkshire   David   Lee   left   home   when   he   was   seventeen.  His  favourite  subjects  are  people  and  he  hopes  that  he  can  portray  that   through  painting.  David  regards  himself  as  an  impressionist,  capturing  a  moment,  a   split  second  in  time.  A  portrait  is  an  expression  that  conveys  a  thought,  a  mood,  as   well   as   a   physical   likeness.   Having   travelled   extensively   for   many   years,   Dave   Lee   noticed  that  if  people  have  one  thing  in  common  it  is  there  vulnerability.  Abraham   Lincoln,  James  Dean,  and  Marilyn  Monroe  all  died  tragically.  Perhaps  in  them  we  see   our  own  mortality.    

David Shillinglaw   Dorian  Gray     Mixed  Paint  on  Canvas   60  cm  x  90  cm   £2,500  

David   Shillinglaw’s   work   moves   between   street   and   studio,   from   small   hand   made   books,  to  paintings  on  canvas,  and  large  scale  wall  murals.       "I  enjoy  the  way  people  use  language  to  define  a  feeling  or  physical  condition.  We   support   what   we   think,   feel,   say,   and   mean,   with   often   ridiculous   idioms   and   metaphors;  placing  frogs  in  throats  and  fires  in  belly’s,  in  order  to  paint  a  picture  of   something   invisible   and   abstract.   I   feed   on   these   very   human   expressions.   I   find   day-­‐ to-­‐day,   conversational   poetry   casts   a   warm   light   on   an   otherwise   very   calculated,   systematic,   clinical   and   scientific   world.   My   work   is   about   people.   Human   nature.   Both  the  civilized  and  monstrous,  the  stupid  and  articulate."

Gemma Compton   Beyond  the  Rainbow   Acrylic  &  Spray  Paint  on  Canvas   40  cm  x  50  cm   £500  

Gemma  Compton  is  an  artist  and  fashion  designer  based  in  Bristol.  Being  brought  up   in   a   small   town   in   the   sleepy   Cotswold's   sparked   a   lifelong   love   for   nature,   particularly  ornithology  and  the  British  countryside.  Her  work  draws  influence  from   the   flawless,  high   glamour   imagery   used   throughout   the   creative   industry.     Beautiful   women   and   modern   day   icons   are   mixed   with   wildlife,   dead   and   alive,   juxtaposing   our  modern  human  ideals  of  beauty  with  natural  beauty  and  the  cruelty  of  nature.

Ian Hodgson   Feathered  Dusk   Graphite  on  Paper   114  cm  x  135  cm   £1,750  (framed)  

'Graduating   with   a   first   class   honours   degree   in   fine   art   from   Bradford   College   of   Art   in  2000  I  moved  to  Brighton  where  I  continue  to  live,  work  and  exhibit  my  art  on  a   regular   basis.   Examining   how   identity   is   imprinted   with   memories   connected   to   place,   objects   and   relationships   creates   a   framework   for   the   drawings   to   develop.   In   some   works   architecture   is   the   defining   presence,   whereas   in   others   figures   or   objects  inhabit  the  space  but  all  refer  to  the  transformative  process  of  journey.   The   drawing   techniques   that   I   use   expose   other,   seemingly   invisible   layers,   and   here   the   drawing   process   acts   as   a   metaphor   for   the   physical   and   psychological   experience   of   my   journey,   as   fragments   of    what   went   before   are   revealed   on   the   paper.'
