Artist Profile: Leigh Lambert
Leigh was born and raised in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where he resided for the first twenty years of his life and began to draw as soon as he could hold a pencil, with his family quickly recognising his artistic flair.
The artist describes himself as mostly self taught, having received no formal art qualifications or training.Lambert relocated to Warwickshire with his family in 1996 where he focused on the development of his technique. It was on leaving Newcastle that he began to appreciate the nature of his upbringing; what he had once seen as a concrete jungle now seeming strangely beautiful. His pieces have a strong sense of nostalgia, evoking fond memories of a youth that many can relate to.
Lambert is an accomplished artist across a range of media, most commonly working in oils on board. His use of colour is minimal, optimistically applying splashes only to the figures that play amidst the otherwise monochromatic landscapes, capturing the joy and vitality of youth. Working from his garden studio, the artist has achieved great success in recent years.
Artist Profile: Gavin Dobson
Originally from the North East of England, British print maker Gavin Dobson graduated in Fine Art in 2000 and has been building his artistic profile and portfolio specialising in painting and screen printing - often combining the two, which helps communicate his chosen narrative which often includes how an environment can affect ones state of thinking and perception.
He is a true master at using both vivid colours and expressive strokes to create engaging and lively pieces. Gavin Dobson was one of just 20 artists chosen to exhibit at Somerset House as part of their Summer Screen Season with Film4. He has been profiled in The Times by art critic Nancy Durrant.
His screen-prints often depict colourful, nostalgic images. Iconic designs which are humorous ornamentation and invite an opening for conversation.
Artist Profile: Rourke van Dal
One of the most established names in urban art, born in 1969, Rourke Van Dal in his own words was "born with a wooden spoon in my gob on a council estate in Bradford". He has cemented his place on the Urban Art scene and takes inspiration from the streets on which he grew up.
The rundown warehouses and “concrete kingdom” of West Yorkshire were Van Dal's playground and his early work reflected this. In 2008 the artist collaborating with photographer Gavin Watson, Van Dal created a collection of iconic portraits based on the ‘The Wycombe Skins’ series.
This style would inform his work for the next two years, resulting in several sold out print editions and exhibitions in Europe and the United States. Over recent years, the artist has revisited his Pop roots with a series of portraits including depictions of Elvis Presley, Superman and Betty Boop.
Over the last 10 years, Van Dal has exhibited extensively in Europe and the USA and continues to produce his unique artwork from his studio in Yorkshire.
Artist Profile: Pegasus
Pegasus is the name and signature of an anonymous North London street artist. Originally from Chicago, his stenciled pieces play with popular culture's most recognizable icons such as David and Victoria Beckham, The Queen, Marilyn Monroe, Blondie and Amy Winehouse and are sometimes ironic or controversial.
Pegasus is influenced by artists from the street as well as fine art world with his biggest influences coming from a certain Mr Banksy. “I also admire other artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Keith Haring, Mr. Brainwash, Richard Hamilton, Horace Panter and Eelus. In terms of my subjects, I paint people I admire and respect…deciding how I will portray them is the hard part.” added Pegasus.
Often cited in the international press as ‘the new Banksy’, Pegasus is extremely proud of the following he’s established in a relatively short period of time. He was recently contacted by Adele to create a unique commission after she saw his painting of friend, Alan Carr. He’s also created special unique commissions for Lindsey Lohan, Alexandra Burke and Kristina Rihanoff and counts Johnny Depp and Simon Cowell amongst his list of collectors who just want something that little bit different.
Pegasus and his incredible work have been featured in many international newspapers, TV channels and publications around the world. He’s been featured in the well-known graffiti books “Happy Graffiti” and “Planet Banksy” and three of his paintings featuring Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis and Lucille Ball have even found a home in the famous Hollywood Museum in Los Angeles.
We work very closely with the artist on commissions, exclusive and unique editions. Contact us for current availability or to discuss commissions.
