Fabian and Lucy

Fabian Perez is one of the worlds leading figurative artists who lived an unusual childhood which in turn became subject for his award winning artworks.

Born in 1967 in Argentina. Fabian Perez’s talent was quite obvious from a young age of 9, when he would draw portraits of family and friends. His father led an unsusual life, owning a number of brothels and illegal nightclubs in Campana, Argentina. Therefore, during his younger years, Fabian was exposed to many different and interesting characters which caught his eye, many being elegant and glamorous tango dancers, flamenco guitarists and gypsy musicians. This is where he drew much of his inspiration for his work and produced paintings with a seductive and intoxicating tone.

Tango En San Telmo - fabian Perez

Fabian Perez lost his mother when he was only 16, and his father when he was 19, this left him wandering aimlessly through a confused life until he found an anchor, Japanese karate master Sensei Oscar Higa, who guided him as a teacher and friend. Fabian travelled with Oscar to Italy where his artist career began.

Between 1987 and the present date, Fabian Perez has been on a journey of inspiration around the globe, collecting creative influences. His real success came in 2001 when two art publishers visited an exhibition of Fabian’s art, and formed a partnership to promote his art and progress his career.

Fabian Perez prints and originals capture a mix of emotions and moods, conveying an idea or a hint rather than providing every detail. Fabian sees his paintings as a way invite people in, to communicate with them. In a similar way to flamenco music, his work has complex rhythms throughout the compositions, the figures, the colours and the techniques.

The five images are an excellent example of the great talent which Jack has taught himself over the many years since being bought a set of watercolours for his 21st birthday. His carrer in art began in 1989 when Vettriano submitted two canvases for the Royal Scottish Academy annual show where both paintings sold on the first day and Vettriano was approached by several galleries following.

The controversial artist has since broken records and seen his most famous original works sold for hundreds of thousands with The Singing Butler being sold in auction for £744,500 which was actually rejected in 1992 by the Royal Academy summer exhibition.

New abstract unique editions by Kerry Darlington

Peacock_Framed-600x1030

Influenced by art and design of the late 19th and 20th century while using modern materials to create her unique style for which has become so well known for.

A Welsh artist, born 1974 in Rhyl, North Wales. Kerry Darlington was heavily inspired by magical fairy tale picture books and stories during her childhood, and had a particular love for Arthur Rackham’s intricate pen and ink work. This influenced her to take a degree in Illustration, with intentions of becoming a children’s book Illustrator. Following this she discovered ‘Art Nouveau’ and the Pre-Raphaelite artists’. She found this work so hauntingly beautiful that it absorbed her and it still has a profound effect on her own art.

For the last seven years Kerry has built a reputation for her original, decorative designs which became hugely popular, focusing primarily on trees and nature.The_Fall_Framed-903x903

She recently took the decision to release her book Illustrations as Unique Edition prints. Her first being the ‘Midnight Garden’ which sold out within a month and her second release ‘Mad Hatters Tea Party’ was so popular that it sold-out rapidly before obtaining high values on the secondary market. Her book illustration work recently included imaginative illustrations adapted from ‘Peter Pan’ by J.M. Barrie and ‘The Magic Faraway Tree’ by Enid Blyton.

In May 2012 she was awarded ‘Best-Selling Published Artist’ at a ceremony by the Fine Art Trade Guild and again recently in 2014.

Closeup_04-300x265On her original pieces, Kerry Darlington works with texture, acrylics and resin. She works in layers to build up depth and create more light. She uses resin as a medium rather than a varnish on the original paintings which lets light penetrate the layers and illuminate them as if they were at the forefront.

With her ‘Unique Editions’, whilst in essence they are prints, each one is some way unique. She creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embellished, and all the work has resin hand-applied, making each print look like an original painting. The effect is so good it is often mistaken for original work.Ophelia-920x716

Building on her success she is releasing an ongoing varied selection of her figurative, abstract and illustrative pieces as ‘Unique Editions’ to fulfil demand. This work is of a more personal nature which she has been working on privately over the last 7 years and which will form much of her work today and in the future.

Her work has also recently been featured on Channel 4’s television series Posh Pawn – Paul and Jackie Ellingworth offered the 7ft x 4ft portrait by the Welsh artist. The piece hung in the couples staircase of their home for the past two years and was bought with the help of a small family inheritance and redundancy money Jackie received when she lost her job three years ago.

Mauna_Kea_Framed-903x726In early 2012 they became proud owners of a painting titled ‘Sakura’ (Japanese for cherry blossom) which came from Darlington’s private collection at a total cost of £25,000. Although the couple never wished to part with Sakura, an unfortunate run of bad luck inevitably forced them to contemplate pawning their precious painting to ease their financial difficulties.

The couple were informed that artist Kerry Darlington wanted to do a unique limited edition print of ‘Sukura’. When artists produce limited edition prints of their work, the increased exposure can cause the value of the original to gain significantly. The outcome could not have been better for the couple as their beloved painting could fetch around £90,000+ in the next few months.

Kerry Darlington has had an unbelievable journey over the last 5-6 years. Like any artist she started at the bottom selling works on eBay for a very small sum and moving forward with her imagination and abilities to creating a series of stunning paintings and unique limited editions.Beezyjet-920x918

Carl Payne – A little bit about this amazing figurative sculptor

Carl Payne’s extraordinary figurative sculpture is based on traditional tenets but has a bold contemporary style which has won him collectors from all over the world.20130503-225359.jpg

He creates his stunning bronze sculpture in the UK with an amazing mastery of technique. His complex and hugely rewarding process demands patience, accuracy, commitment and artistry.

New signed limited edition artwork from Iain Faulkner

20120613-015857.jpgAstounding new artwork from Iain Faulkner. A series of new editions have been released this year the latest are pictured here. With compositions developed in the course of his 15year career, Iain Faulkner has paved the way for a re-discovery of the almost-forgotten Romantic Movement, allowing a younger generation of artists, painters, sculptors and photographers to follow into the richness the artistic period.

His recurring theme of reflection is a simple yet extraordinary effect which has a profound meaning in the artist’s mind. He studies the optical effects of colour, light and refraction in a body of water, whether that is a humble puddle or a grand loch at home in Scotland. His talents are simply amazing and it is not surprising when his limited edition prints sell out in weeks of release.

Iain Faulkner was born in Glasgow. Since graduating from Glasgow School of Art in 1996 with a BA in Fine Art, he has established himself as a skilled draughtsman with the integrity to embrace the difficult path of contemporary figurative painting. Still only in his 30s, he has already had numerous successful solo shows in the UK, USA, Spain and Italy. Iain was commissioned to paint the European 2010 Ryder Cup Team member portraits.

Tragic Death of One of the Country’s Greatest Contemporary Artists

It is with great sadness that we announce the tragic death of one of the country’s greatest contemporary artists – Govinder Nazran. Govinder died on Tuesday 30th December after an accident on Christmas Day which left him with severe head injuries.

Govinders art training began in Bradford in the North of England, where he studied Graphic Design from 1980-1983. After that he then went on to study for a Higher Diploma in Graphic Design, specialising in illustration, at Lincoln Art College.

After completing all his formal training he decided to move to London, approaching all of the major city publishers with his portfolio. It was there that he worked on illustrations for children’s books, and after 6 months moved to Cambridge where and continued working as a freelance illustrator.

Upon moving back to his home town of Saltaire in West Yorkshire, Govinder took up the position of designer for a greetings card company, which involved all aspects of product design and development. Following that he became a photographic art director, directing fashion shoots all over the world. He did this for the next year or so until 1993, when he decided to swap his hectic photographic job and lifestyle, for a quieter life back in Saltaire. He spent the next five years here in the UK, working freelance on card designs with major publishing companies.

It wasn’t until 1999 that he decided to enter the fine art market and approached Washington Green with his portfolio. Since joining them they have published over 40 of his designs and many into sculptures.
2009 would have been the tenth anniversary of Washington Green working with Govinder, a decade of the most amazing and creative art from one of the most talented, gentle and innovative artists they have ever had the pleasure of working with.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

‘It is often the brightest star that burns for the shortest time’.

As a mark of respect, we have withdrawn all Govinder artwork from sale until further notice.
