ART LOVERS GIFT GUIDE : LONDON STYLE

Want to know the perfect gift for the art lover in your life? It’s Art!

Here are a few stunning pieces for the walls of any passionate art collector who has a pulse on the new contemporary art movement. The following pieces were shown in London at the Moniker International Art Fair.

Sainer (Etam Cru) and Zoer “Plastic Psychodelic” (2017) Acrylic on linen Sainer and Zoer Collab 60″ × 48″ | 152× 122cm $9,000

Sainer (Etam Cru) is a painter and muralist who is a graduate of Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz. He currently lives and works in Gdynia, Poland.

Telmo Miel “Round About Midnight” (2017) Oil and acrylic on linen 19.69″ × 27.56″ | 50 × 70 cm $2,400

Telmo Miel is Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann, a muralist and image-making duo from the Netherlands. Combining multiple elements in a single composition, they layer references to the human and animal worlds to create complex creatures and fantastic scenarios. With positivity, humor and a touch of the romantic, their work is arresting and epic.

James Bullough “Oblivion” (2017) Oil, acrylic and aerosol on wood panel 31.5″ × 27.5″ | 80× 70cm $4,400

James Bullough is an American born artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. His paintings, and huge monumentally scaled site-specific murals are phenomenal combinations of realist painting technique and graphic punctuation.

Carl Cashman “A Helmet Full of Tears” (2017) Spray on cradled wooden panel 16″ × 20″ | 41 × 51 cm $800

Carl Cashman creates vibrant neon colored op-art, a genre he has coined “neometry”, or neon geometry. The works are hypnotic, at times bordering on the hallucinatory, and blur the distinction between digital and analog forms.

David Cooley – “Epicycloidal” (2017) Acrylic and resin on wood panel 36″ × 36″ | 91× 91cm $6,500

David Cooley, a Santa Barbara-based artist is inspired by the idea of creating something that’s previously only existed in thought and making something that’s tangible, with the intent to have an impact on others, whether it’s thought-provoking, fun, or just aesthetically pleasing.

Kevin Peterson “Indie Lion” (2017) Oil on wood panel 28″ × 15″ | 71× 38cm $6,500

Kevin Peterson‘s work is about the varied journeys we take through life. It’s about growing up and living in a world that is broken. These paintings are about trauma, fear and loneliness and the strength that it takes to survive and thrive. They each contain the contrast of the untainted, young and innocent against a backdrop of a worn, ragged, and defiled world.

Happy Holidays!

We had an amazing time at the Moniker International Art Fair, but don’t take it from us. Below is a few press placements highlighting our Moniker takeover.

Art Net

Worth mentioning is the vast, eight-stand takeover by leading Los Angeles-based gallery, Thinkspace. In the first five hours of sales, the California gallery reported an income of over £100,000 across its group show and seven solo exhibitions, including the UK debut of Audrey Kawasaki, whose lowbrow artworks command between £15,000-£25,000 on the market, and other stands dedicated to Kevin Peterson, David Cooley, Brian Viveros, and Cinta Vidal. – Art Net

DULK’S “EXTINCTION” at Moniker International Art Fair

Dulk’s “Extinction” opens at the Moniker International Art Fair tomorrow. A vibrant new body of work from Dulk of surrealistic landscapes full of inspired imaginative details. Dulk explains the inspiration behind the exhibition in a video giving the viewer a peek into his studio and adventures.
