The gallery is currently working with a collector to acquire paintings by the Brazilian urban artist duo, Os Gemoes as well as originals by KAWS. We have purchased a number of works and are keen to buy others. We would be interested to hear from anyone who is thinking of selling.
Over the past fifteen years, The gallery has worked on an occasional basis with John Virtue, one of the UK's most distinguished painters. We have sold a number of important pictures, including a large London panorama from his landmark exhibition at the National Gallery, London in 2005. We have now received a group of small acrylic works which will form one of our first gallery online only exhibitions. Introducing is where visitors can explore and collect works from curated shows by artists that we work closely with, as well as special collaborations with invited guests. The emphasis is on championing small-scale work at affordable prices.
