Our Top Artists 2016
Posted on December 28 2016
As another year draws to a close, we wanted to take a moment to highlight our top 5 artists of 2016
David Shillinglaw is definitely one to watch!
"David is a mind adventurer, where the left half of the brain explores the right one. Unanswered, impulsive, instinctive and restless - David doesn’t paint or draw, he creates time. Evident in all his work is that David Shillinglaw is not afraid to humanise his art. He incorporates the perceptual concern of his journey as a man with his own sense of humour. The result is a powerful and fresh interpretation of everyday reality. His art has the appeal of Pop but a friendly, subtle, self effacing Pop that presents the ordinary and delights the viewer when he shows that you have your best conversation with yourself".
Even the celebrities agree - Leonardo Di Caprio, the famous actor and environmental activist, snapped a picture of Shillinglaw's recent mural about climate change in LA. If it's good enough for Leo...
This year David Shrigley was asked to create the infamous fourth plinth commission in Trafalgar Square, London - arguably the most famous public art commission in the world - a real honour!
We can't talk about our top artists of 2016 without mentioning Andy Wilx. Recently awarded 'Best International Artist' by the Global Artist Agency, Andy's unique style has become more widely known... who wouldn't want this on their wall?
Who doesn't love Grayson Perry? His witty designs are infamous and better yet, he's creating more! We cannot wait to see his exhibition of new works at the Serpentine Gallery in 2017!
Yinka Shonibare is a world-renowned artist and with good reason. His stunning work hangs in collections internationally, including the V&A, Tate, MOMA, National Gallery of Canada and many more!
