Paul Horton – ‘Love Is Life’ collection, New for Autumn 2009

November 3, 2009 on 5:13 pm | In Naive Art, New Releases, Paul Horton, Sculptures | 2 Comments

Often described as a unique storyteller, Paul Horton has recently released a new line of art work & within it you will see his trait for brightly coloured buildings, beside the seaside, continues!; as a mater of fact, released this time is a sculpture actually called ‘Beside the Sea’ which will bring a big smile to Horton fans.


(Beside The Sea Sculpture by Paul Horton)

His ingenious use of bright colours to create the weather-worn look to his seaside buildings captures the imaginations and fond memories of his fans who may remember family trips to the seaside as children.


(Far Beyond Forever by Paul Horton)

This piece depicts a couple standing in the foreground of a seaside street. At first glance, they may appear insignificant. However, they are looking out to sea with hopes and dreams for their future. Perhaps in this moment, they find all else insignificant?


(Spellbound by Paul Horton)

In this piece we see Gandalf is making potions at home. I love this picture because every time I look I see something new. There is also an owl in this picture. Possibly Hedwig from Harry Potter!! That’s probably why the cat looks so annoyed!


(The Man Who No-One Knows by Paul Horton)

Is he a sinister being? A man on his way home from work? Or is he a magician with a rabbit in his top hat? Who knows? That’s for you to decide! Let us know your thoughts!


(Fragile Earth by Paul Horton)

A very emotive piece depicting Noah’s Ark, of which Horton has previously painted in different situations. However, this piece is set in the North and South Poles to highlight the current issues of climate change. The Ark is shown to be there to rescue the animals from the melting ice caps.

Artist Caroline Shotton Movin’ collection – she gets her butt ‘branded’

October 8, 2009 on 7:28 pm | In Caroline Shotton, Cows, Naive Art, New Releases, Sculptures | No Comments

Well that got your attention! The Caroline Shotton Moovin’ Tour/collection contains 8 funky box canvases and a new sculpture but she has now diversified into branded goods, knick knacks if you will!


(Leather handbag & Leather purse by Caroline Shotton)

We have 6 items to be exact: a Pill box, Key ring, Compact mirror, Bottle Stop, Leather Handbag & Leather Purse (& of course the new sculpture)

What do you the public think of this? By the reaction to it, people have warmed to having some of Caroline Shotton’s ‘branded’ items. For one thing they are affordable momentums of Caroline’s work and for another, they are highly collectable in their own right.


(‘I Love Moo’ Compact Mirror by Caroline Shotton)

Many years ago some of the big publishing houses had the bright idea to bring out sculptures relating to a particular Limited Edition print, very often giving it the same name. I guess it follows that the time is right to add even more collectability to an artists’s name by moving into other products.


(‘I Love Moo’ Key Ring by Caroline Shotton)

If this is handled right and in a limited capacity, yes I know the key ring is a limited edition of 2000! but if they do this with a limited number of artists, a limited number of times, I think it will be highly successful addition to their range.


(‘I Love Moo’ Pill Box by Caroline Shotton)

There are people who have bought sculptures (e.g. one of Caroline’s) who have never bought a picture before but they end up buying one of her box canvases. In the same way some people might by a bottle stop, and then progress to buying her art, the Diamonds Are For Heifers is a brilliant example (see below)

As they say on the compare the meerkat advert, simples!

We are pleased to announce the first in what may possibly be a range of tribute/posthumous limited edition pieces by Govinder Nazran, released by Washington Green publishers.

These 2 cats, together form ‘Lean On me’ the first ever stainless steel sculpture by Govinder.

Stunning, this piece is a fitting continuation of Govinder’s published work:

Salvador Dali – Exclusive limited edition prints & sculptures

November 1, 2008 on 3:02 pm | In Famous Artists, Salvador Dali, Sculptures, Surrealism | 5 Comments

I have had a lot of emails from people who have simply adored the exclusive Dali Limited Edition prints and sculptures I blogged about back in Feb 2008 and where unaware something of this quality was available to buy.

The sheer size of the prints (all are 21 inches wide x 29.25 inches tall, that excludes the mounting/ matting which make them even bigger) and the quality of the reproduction of these serigraphs, has truly impressed people. The detail that has gone into recreating his famous characters into sculpture form has simply blown the public away – judging by all the emails I have received.

The positive feedback has been tremendous and I never realised how lasting the appeal of Salvador Dali and his work is.

People have requested I post comprehensively images of the 6 limited edition prints and 11 sculptures that where available from this exclusive set of releases, so here goes.
