Bond... James Bond

By Ben Jeffery

Introducing Bond…James Bond.

Ben Jeffery continues to celebrate British culture of the last century with an iconic new studio edition commemorating 60 years of James Bond.

The work represents an extraordinary homage to one of the most successful and enduring film franchises of all time and captures the transformation of 007 over the last sixty years, and the various chapters of the much-loved narrative. Assembling his cast of 007s against the quintessential Bond backdrop of the London skyline, Ben has represented each incarnation in their iconic attire, and captured the attitude and poise that every version has emanated in their own unique way.

Whilst striving to achieve a strong likeness, Ben endeavours to capture the personality of the character in his portraiture, embracing the individuality that each Bond has brought to the table! Ben renders these familiar faces somehow unfamiliar with his unusual colour palette and striking silver leaf embellishment. This leaf is applied by hand to each edition, which offers a uniqueness to every piece, and suggests a sense of wealth afforded by his subjects. Ben’s innovative approach brings something completely new to his representations of key figures of popular culture and sets them apart from those of his contemporaries.

Pulp Addiction, The Femme Fatale Series

By Linda Charles

The new collection from Linda Charles Pulp Addiction, The Femme Fatale Series, is a range of limited editions inspired by mysterious, beautiful, and seductive women who use their feminine wiles to charm and ensnare their lovers! The term originates from the French phrase femme fatale, which means 'deadly woman' or 'lethal woman'. She is an archetype of literature and art. With her ability to enchant, entice and hypnotize men, the femme fatale today is often described as having a power akin to an enchantress or witch.

Linda has taken this time-honoured theme and beautifully woven it into her quintessential fusion of vintage book covers, with a back catalogue of iconic song titles and lyrics. She combines her love of the imagery of the pulp paperback books of the 40s, 50s and 60s with a back catalogue of music hits by a range of cult status artists. She gives new life to relics of the past and fuses them with contemporary pop culture. The familiarity elicits an emotional response whilst triggering nostalgic memories. Music has always been an important part of Linda’s creativity and she always paints to music in her studio. She had the idea of combining elements of classic songs and artists with the look and feel of old paperback books when she came across a box of vintage books in the attic.

“The first one I came across featured a stunning woman running from a pair of headlights following her in a remote area. Immediately ‘Born to Run’ by Bruce Springsteen played in my head and the concept was born! I have so much fun with these collections because they combine the two artistic concepts of audio and visual. I’ve received so many lovely comments from all walks of life, including famous songwriters, pure music lovers and art collectors.”

Never Forget

By Amy Louise

Amy’s portraiture is as renowned for its wit as it is for its distinctiveness. Inspired by all things contemporary, her characters, style and colour palette make the work instantly recognisable, and she has established a considerable following on the art scene.

Amy lovingly captures the personality of the characters she portrays and illustrates them in enchanting acts of colour and form. The beguiling detail of the subject is juxtaposed with the softness and simplicity of its background and this, along with the bold bitumen outlines, ensures the work has a powerful presence in any space.

In this iconic edition, Amy beautifully embodies the emotion of Remembrance Day with the quintessential poppy and her personal interpretation of the much-loved animal, the elephant. The phrase an "An elephant never forgets" seems to have originated from observations that elephants follow the same paths and even hand down genetic memories of directions and places across generations. Their impressive memory is only one aspect of an incredible intelligence that makes them some of the most social, creative, and benevolent creatures on earth, thus making Amy’s choice of animal to mark this memorial day, both fitting and uplifting.

Studio Editions Brochure XIII

View the new collections

Welcome to the latest edition of The Studio Editions Collection brochure…

This month, we are delighted to welcome the highly distinguished, American artist Robert Mars to the portfolio, with four debut studio editions. Chronicling a fascination with 1950’s and 1960’s iconography, Robert creates artwork that celebrates the commonplace objects and icons of an USA long past, in a thoroughly modern and exquisitely constructed manner.

In contrast, Scott Tetlow takes us into the wonderful world of the superhero! Inspired by one of the most lucrative film genres of this century, he has taken some of the greatest comic characters from the DC and Marvel portfolio, to create a collection brimming with innovation and fun! Similarly inspired by 21st century cultural themes, Sannib has chosen to celebrate legends of film in his new range of editions, interpreting them in his innovative and distinctive style, thus rendering familiar faces in a new and exciting way.

We are delighted to see the return of Anna Cher this month, with the launch of three new titles featuring a fresh new subject matter. Focusing on the beauty of nature, she aims to create a balance between realistic and abstract art, and her unique style of animal portraiture is beautifully exemplified in these new editions, with experimental brushstrokes and a tonal colour palette.

The Studio Editions Collection brochure featuring some of the most exciting artists on the contemporary art scene and each title is hand signed by the artist. These editions are exquisitely hand finished employing a variety of techniques, which offers originality and individuality.

Eyes of Beauty

By Anna Cher

Anna is a renowned contemporary painter, and her original artwork has been highly sought-after for some years. Focused on the beauty of nature, she aims to create a balance between realistic and abstract art. Anna is passionate about experimentation and she enjoys evolving her style through brushstrokes, multi-laying, and colour palette.

Anna studied interior design as part of her art education in Russia, and the tonal harmony of colour and texture that she studied has undoubtedly informed her work. The move from Russia to the UK opened a new world of visual perception for her which she believes is based on the cultural codes; “this is how I began my journey of releasing my style from academic rules in painting and finding my own visual voice”. Anna feels that she has found a delicate equilibrium between the energy of mark-making and the perception of reality.

Having experimented with multiple mediums, Anna now focuses on acrylics. It is an important element of her signature style; acrylics dry quickly and therefore ensures that there is a vitality to her work that can be lost though overthinking. The use of palette knives accentuates the movement in her work and consequently her paintings are immediate, fresh, and energised. There is a depth to her work that is emphasised by the texture and sculptural nature of her approach, and a luxury and opulence that radiates from the subject matter that she depicts.

Legends of Film

By Sannib

Sannib’s portraiture celebrates a distinguished repertoire of the 20th and 21st century characters to produce show-stopping artwork full of energy and vibrancy. The creativity in which he represents familiar faces is both innovative and charming. The abstraction and Illusion of layers gives stunning depth to his innovative interpretation of iconic characters. 

Sannib is a graduate in Graphic Design from the Syrian Design Center, Aleppo, Syria (1997) and before becoming a notable artist, he enjoyed a successful career in advertising, working in creative agencies in Kuwait, the UAE and London. 

The experience of his background is clearing evident in his creative process; his artwork is sophisticated and his compositions both intricate and intriguing. Sannib has developed a unique mixed media style blending graphic elements, painting techniques and textures. He uses several materials and mediums, combined with highly distinctive colourways and avant-garde finishes. 

Sannib has a great passion for colourful communication and finds inspiration in both vibrancy and infused lighting. He believes that his colour palette derives from nature’s own colour spectrum, with a focus on” the golden shades of the earth and the inspirational blue shades of the sea and sky”. 

Since joining the portfolio earlier this year, Sannib has continued to enthral art lovers, and he is an artist every art collector should take note of in 2022.

Leigh Lambert

Precious Times

Taking inspiration from his own upbringing in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Leigh’s artwork has a strong sense of nostalgia which evoke precious memories of childhood that many of us can relate to. As a youngster, he loved nothing more than spending time with his grandparents who lived in traditional terraced housing in the northeast. Whether it was a visit to the corner shop for sweets, or a family afternoon spent picking flowers or foraging for berries, Leigh has many wonderful memories of those special “simple” days which he incorporates into the narrative of his work.

Leigh’s technique is painstakingly accurate. He prefers the surface on which he paints to be solid and smooth, and consequently he primed his board six times to achieve the desired finish. Consequently, the surface of his oil paintings is exceptionally refined. Leigh’s colour palette reflects the dark northern tones that have become synonymous with the coal mine towns of the north-east. He works in layers, beginning with the sky, painting from the background to the foreground. His use of colour is minimal, optimistically applying splashes of colour only to the figures that play amidst the otherwise monochromatic landscapes. This vibrancy of colour captures the joy and vitality of youth and often denotes symbolism in the work.

Leigh first began winning awards for his work in 2014 and has enjoyed a very successful career to date, with countless limited editions collections sold out within weeks of release. His original paintings are highly sought-after and due to the technique that he employs, they are quite a rarity. For Leigh, he hopes that his work has impact on the viewer and enriches their lives by stirring up positive, nostalgic feelings and memories. To have his work in pride of place in someone’s home is a huge privilege and he simply “couldn’t wish for better!”

Comic Crusaders

By Scott Tetlow

Scott Tetlow celebrates the most iconic superheroes of all time.

Since the birth of the comic book hero in the 1930s, a minor subculture has grown into a major and universally loved theme in our popular culture. Gaining tremendous momentum in the last 30 years, the individuality, storylines, and styles of these comic characters have evolved into a powerful film genre, which transcends age, gender, and nationality.

Scott has taken the greatest comic characters from the DC and Marvel portfolio to create a collection of superheroes that will bring pure joy to its audience. In his quintessential style, he has breathed new life in these iconic brands and interpreted them in a fresh new exhilarating way. ‘Comic art becomes fine art’ at the hands of Scott Tetlow, as he immortalises an impressive line-up of legendary superheroes, including Marvel’s Thor, Spiderman, Hulk and Captain America, alongside DC favourites Batman, the Joker and Wonder Woman.

Scott lived in Taiwan for a time and his studies of calligraphy have greatly influenced his work. Scott has developed a form of painting that is linear and yet absent of the traditional constraints of calligraphy. Instead, it is imbued with a sense of freedom of movement, that is balanced and contained in a considered composition, and there is an unreserved elegance to his stylist interpretations whatever the subject matter.

Star Quailty

By Robert Mars

Introducing Robert Mars

Chronicling a fascination with 1950’s and 60’s iconography, Robert Mars creates artwork that celebrates the commonplace objects and icons of an America long past in a thoroughly modern, and exquisitely constructed, manner. His eye for a distinct facet of American history is impeccable, and his ability to manipulate both the colour and wordplay of vintage printed material has earned him reference with the likes of Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and Richard Diebenkorn, among other masters from the School of Pop. By taking inspiration from the Golden Age of American popular culture and celebrating figures of the 1950’s and 60’s, Mars’ artwork chronicles an evolving relationship with celebrity.

By merging his own concept of personal idols with those of mainstream culture, Mars can focus his work on a deeper analysis of the Golden Age of Americana. His early work focuses on many of the architectural and mechanical forms of the 50’s and 60’s, where muscle cars, motels, kitschy logos, and hulking monuments to the "modern" feeling of the time reigned supreme. More recently, however, Mars’ artwork has shifted toward the culture of celebrity, and he is strikingly attuned to the fact that these instantly recognizable and larger than life personalities continue to resonate not only with contemporary American culture, but on the wider world.

In the last ten years, Mars has explored traditionalism from another angle; influenced by his wife, Mars began to delve deeper into American culture by focusing on folk art and contemporary American quiltmakers. By combining vintage wallpapers with quilt patterns, Mars has further differentiated himself from artists using similar iconic themes. Mars is credited as being the first to incorporate quilt patterns and a folk-art sensibility into a pop art aesthetic creating his own genre of folk laced pop.

A graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York, Mars often references his decades as a graphic designer in his work. His artwork is exhibited worldwide including museum, corporate, and private collections in Munich, Tokyo, Amsterdam, London, Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Laguna Beach, Paris, Aspen, and Dallas.

Welcome to the latest edition of The Studio Editions Collection brochure…

Ocean Breeze

By Duncan Palmar

Born in Hampshire in 1964, Duncan Palmar’s love of painting and an innate love affair with the English coastline, ensured that the sea naturally became his chosen subject matter. With its intrinsic beauty, dramatic movements, and quality of light, Devon and Cornwall have become an irresistible pull and Duncan spends a great deal of time on the south coast.  The Newlyn School of Artists, a group of artists that lived and worked in Cornwall from the1880s, have been a huge inspiration to Duncan. Newlyn painting combined the impressionist derived doctrine of working directly from the subject, and in the open air, with subject matter drawn from rural life. Duncan’s distinctive representational paintings capture texture, light and atmosphere with seeming effortlessness. He enjoys producing evocative paintings that capture the changing times of the day, and the different seasons of the year, to create a portfolio of scenes with diverse moods, tones, and rhythms. He also enjoys concentrating on the smaller details within a composition, creating the effect of damp seaweed on a harbour wall or reflections of clouds on wet sand, for example.

Duncan creates beautiful visions of tranquillity, flooded with dappled sunlight and reflective sands that offer a wonderful sense of calmness. Hues blend to create evanescent hazy glows that are both soothing and evocative, allowing the viewer to lose themselves in a picturesque natural world.

Palmar has experienced phenomenal success, with several sell-out exhibitions to his name. As a Member of The Royal Society of Marine Artists, Duncan is highly celebrated amongst his contemporaries. Now living and working in Surrey, Duncan says that he feels very privileged to paint every day and continues to love his journey of exploration on the canvas.

Passionate Moments

By Andrei Protsouk

Introducing Passionate Moments by Andrei Protsouk.

The universal theme of love is a quintessential characteristic of Andrei’s work, as he often depicts couples in enthusiastic embraces or captures them in intense, impassioned dances. Sometimes we embark upon a solitary character for whom the narrative is ambiguous; are they waiting for ‘amour’ to arrive or return?

Andrei’s intricate and detailed shapes burst with vibrancy, as the colour and textures weave together to create his cast of characters. Andrei has embedded his use of line into all his artwork and has coined this technique as “Fine Line.” His straight, constructive use of line embodies his classical fine art training in every way. In the academy, Andrei was revered as a ‘Master of Composition’ - where most artists are limited to only a few elements of composition in their work, Protsouk incorporates all the elements of composition into his. This captivates the eyes of his audience and as they move around the canvas, the unique composition ensures that the painting is never seen in the same way twice. Andrei’s use of constructive line demonstrates his innate creative ability, and understanding of the human form, drawing comparisons to the figurative works of Michelangelo.

Andrei’s experimentation in art, and the evolution of his subject matter, has ensured phenomenal commercial success, plus great admiration from his contemporaries. He has many accolades, including of commissions for Johnnie Walker and Coca Cola, and his work hangs in private collections of notable figures, including former US president George Bush.

Andrei Protsouk was born in Ukraine and attended the prestigious Lugansk School of Fine Art, and the Ilya Repin Leningrad Institute, which is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest art training programmes. It was here that Protsouk studied under Evsey Moiseenko, who is a world renowned contemporary of Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso.

New Beginnings Collection

By Kimberley Harris

Kimberley is one of the most successful living artists in her chosen genre and her studio edition collection has compounded this position with multiple sold-out titles.

The new collection New Beginnings features dreamy fields of wildflowers which embody a wonderful sense of emotion and atmosphere. The smooth skies juxtapose with the rich heavy impasto technique that forms the floral foreground. The palette knife application of paint adds drama to each composition, which is further reinforced by Kimberley’s fearless use of colour. There is an incredible sense of depth to her work and the composition encourages the viewer to drift effortlessly through the floral notes, as we head towards to distant skies of tranquillity in the background.

Each edition is beautifully hand embellished, combining the skill of the UK’s finest printmakers with the creative hand of the artist, to capture the very essence of the original painting and offer a unique element to every single collectable edition.

Capital Culture Studio Edition Collection

By Nigel Cooke

The intense colours and dramatic textural juxtapositions displayed in the work of Nigel Cooke have established him as the quintessential artist of the cityscape genre.

Nigel travelled extensively around the world as a caricature artist, and these travels inspired him to begin painting, elevating his illustrative style into fine art and creating his unique vision of the urban landscape onto the canvas.

Nigel’s unmistakeable style has clearly been influenced by Abstract Expressionist Jackson Pollock and his distinctive drip paint technique. At first glance, it may look like a simplistic approach, but in fact it is a remarkably complex form of paint application that requires a great deal of practice and control. The legacy of Pollock has been translated into visionary contemporary cityscapes at the hands of Nigel Cooke, as he creates beautifully textured scenes that have intricate, layered details. This layering is an important aspect of Nigel’s work: the layers create a surface patternation that is independent of its subject matter, and this allows the eye to travel freely across the canvas which offers both a remarkable sense of depth and a certain serenity to the work.


The fluidity of the paint juxtaposed with the rigidity of the buildings fuse together to create cityscapes that are vibrant, striking, and dynamic. The mood and ambience of the city is captured beautifully; the energy of city life radiates from the canvas, and the accuracy of the iconic architecture is secondary to the vibe of the hustle and bustle of the iconic cities that Nigel portrays.

New Collection

by Joanna Taylor

Following extensive travels in Africa and the Middle East, Joanna became captivated by the magic of colourful and contrasting big skies. Having settled in Devon with her husband and four small boys, she continues to be drawn to the complexity of the sky, and is now equally inspired by the drama of Britain’s beautiful moorlands.
 
Joanna finds endless inspiration in the landscapes of Exmoor, the New Forest, and the Yorkshire Dales for her studies of cloud formation. However, Dartmoor is her favourite location to sketch stunning compositions of clouds and the horizon, before returning home to expressively layer the light and shadow in oils.
 
Influenced by Dutch artist Jacob van Ruisdael’s study of cloudscapes, and the vastness of Thomas Cole’s canvases, Joanna endeavours to capture the intricacy of light spilling from clouds in her own work. Her canvases utilise a 70:30 ratio, magnifying the moment the landscape meets the horizon, and offering an atmospheric perspective on the vastness of nature and the insignificance of self. Paint is expressively layered and blended to create depth and texture, whilst her natural ability to use colour floods her canvases with light and life, fusing serenity and drama to stunning effect.

Outer Edges

By Keith McBride

Keith McBride has achieved an international reputation for his amusing and quirky iconic images of London, which are inspired by its people, architecture, and transport system! His inspiration stems from the period he spent working in the capital. Keith would visit rooftops in the heart of London and watch the city wake up, sketching people walking to and from work and travelling around. His artwork perfectly captures the hustle and bustle of the capital and features iconic landmarks such as the statue of Eos, red phone boxes, and black cabs.

Keith enjoys working with acrylics and canvas, although he starts every new composition with an ink drawing in a loose style. He then incorporates cartoon style art and silkscreen printing to achieve his final vibrant artwork. He refers to his collages as “a massive jigsaw puzzle in reverse.”

Much of Keith’s latest work fuses Urban Art and Pop Art with a touch of surrealism. He comments on culture trends and hot topics of the day through his art, using themes such as money and power, alongside cultural icons in fashion and lifestyle to reflect on life in the first part of the 21st century.

His contemporary and unique collages are eye-catching and there is always something new to find in them. They are great conversation pieces and give vitality and energy to the space in which they hang. Keith has achieved an international reputation for his collages and has been commissioned to produce work all over the UK and indeed worldwide.

Timeless Icons - Edition Release

By Scott Tetlow

Following on from the success of ‘Legends’, we are delighted to present a range of new limited editions featuring iconic musical figures of the 20th & 21st century. Completely modern and original in their inception, there is an unreserved elegance to his stylist interpretations of these very different stars of radio and screen.

Distinctive of the urban pop movement, Scott’s style is innovative and instantly recognisable, regardless of the subject matter. Scott lived in Taiwan for a time and his studies of calligraphy have greatly influenced his work. Chinese calligraphy is valued as ‘high art’, both for the beauty of its aesthetic form and its ability to express the inner beauty of the soul and spirit. Often, Chinese painters will say they are “writing a painting” and this is a concept that continues to shape Scott’s work to this day.

Through his love of calligraphy, Scott has developed a form of painting that is linear and yet absent of the constraints of calligraphy. Instead, it is imbued with a sense of freedom of movement, that is balanced and contained in considered composition. This movement adds to the illusion of life and spirit. There is a confidence of line, a strength in the flow of creation that adds to the energy of the artwork. Quite clearly there is an abstraction to the work, but there is a realism too that gives his chosen icons personality and character that is unsurpassed.
