Banksy. Do we invest?

Last week saw the opening of his latest exhibition. At a hotel nestled against the controversial barrier wall separating Israel from Palestine, Banksy has transformed the building with art and sculpture synonymous with its geographical and historical positon. Although it’s fair to say it will be critically analysed over the coming weeks with both good and bad reviews, one thing for certain is that Banksy is back on top of the art world. The honorary top spot was compounded by the fact that yesterday Sotheby’s sold a piece ‘This is a pipe’ for £285,000. A sum double its estimate.

Its a Pipe

Banksy is certainly hot property so let’s speculate as to why he continues to take the art world by storm. One might suggest his ideas are current and mainstream, incorporating a humorous stance residing within international cultures outlining war, consumerism, social media and politics. Others believe his success to be predominantly based upon a supposedly discreet identity. I personally believe his success is down to sheer skill in delivering the concept and by this I don’t mean his ability to stencil and spray paint onto a wall but to continue to create works that intrigue and inspire the entire globe. The old saying of letting the art do the talking is obviously paramount here and echoes forth with regards to the simply staggering effect Banksy has had upon the art market throughout his career.

So, down to the facts. A lot of people feel that Banksy paints on walls and or occasionally creates murals for A List celebrities, however obtaining a piece of art by Banksy doesn’t have to be that difficult… Here in the gallery we are exhibiting unsigned and signed works by Banksy. Over the past decade Banksy has released much signed work into the market. He created a number of limited editions that have become incredibly collectible, the most sought after being the famous ‘Girl with Balloon’. A piece (in good condition) is worth up to £70,000 on the open market. Not a bad investment considering its initial retail ticket was around £200.

As I mentioned there are a number of pieces in various galleries and adorning the walls of collectors. Some more exciting and deemed more collectable than others. The gallery is pleased to announce a number of signed and unsigned pieces by Banksy are on display. You are welcome to view works below with further more in our studio.

Katy Jade Dobson. A touch of Monochrome?

What is it about monochrome? It never seems to go out of fashion, it never ages and it never fails to capture the imagination.

One of the best exhibitions I ever had the pleasure of visiting was the ‘Picasso Black and White’ held at the Guggenheim in New York back in November 2012.  The work was displayed beautifully and with the building itself a gleaming white edifice, contrasting elegantly alongside Picasso’s creations.

It is perhaps this simplicity and clarity that draws the viewer in, offering an element of creativity to the viewer that may not other wise exist. There is an untapped excitement in the ability to add colours and fill spaces with the mind creating your own subjective meaning to each piece that would otherwise be coloured in for you.

It would not be unfair to say that as a result black and white pieces tend to have a timeless appeal that allow them to adapt to a changing world around them. Fitting into new moulds whilst still resonating with a notion of the moment in which they were created to capture.

It is with this idea in mind we take a look at new work by the talented artist Katy Jade Dobson. A usual trait of this artist is to brush her canvas with colour however on this occasion she has purged her recognizable uses of reds, greens and purples from the art in order to highlight the formal structure and autonomy of form. An extremely difficult task as she works with a few base paints to create movement and life on to a static canvas or board. Although predominately black and white Dobson cannot resist a hue of colour to enhance the monochrome structure. Her ability to allow shadows to flow free is incandescent of her talent as an artist.

 

New works include ‘Harmony’, ‘Composure’ and ‘Dignity’.
