We don’t tend to sell much art. Not because we don’t want to, we’ve tried in the past, but nothing has really worked in the context of our shops. There has been work we have liked but it’s been more suited to a gallery type environment. Then we discovered James Brown….We’ve been selling James Brown’s wonderful screen-prints for a while now. We love his use of bold graphic designs, coupled with vintage styling. Right up our street!
Here’s a bit about him (taken from his website)………..
“James Brown is an illustrator and printmaker, living and working in London. Trained as a textile and surface print designer, James worked in the clothing industry for 10 years producing print designs for numerous fashion brands from Levis to Louis Vuitton. James has been commissioned to produce work by publishing houses, magazines and newspapers and advertising and design agencies. Recent clients include GQ, Random House, The Guardian and The Poetry Society. Alongside his commercial practice (www.generalpattern.net) James produces limited edition screen prints and linocuts. James’ prints reflects his interest in the printed and typographic ephemera of pop culture. The traditional processes that go into the production of James’ prints are very important.”
