  • RHED  (+)

    Biography : Rhed is a young emerging artist whose cultural background is diverse and unconventional. His childhood was spent between New York and London which have given him an eclectic and diverse artistic background. He has embraced a style of art with expressionist style and street energy and it is no surprise that he first dabbled as a graffiti artist. His works are unique and brilliantly chaotic with a playful and performative aspect. Societal conflicts such as the obsession with social media, fixation on celebrities & labels and issues such as drug abuse and depression are subjects that he approaches in a coded fashion; it is almost as if the artist uses the paintings to act as a spokesman for the millennial generation who have overdosed on a toxic society. He has disguised the foreboding subjects with his use of colour which is bold & dominating. The texture in his paintings is deliberately forceful and layered and there are obvious influences from Picasso to Basquiat. What we are witnessing is a genuine desire to create an expressive language of emotion and storytelling which is laid bare on the canvas. Whilst using drawing as the key component in his paintings, the strong figurative Influence is refreshing from an emerging artist whose generation has largely forgotten the art of drawing.

  • Frank Auerbach  (+)

    Biography : Auerbach painted his first view of north London in 1954 and this particular area of the capital would go on to occupy a central position in his oeuvre. After turning his attention to the chaotic hustle and bustle of Morning Crescent station in 1968 it remains to this day his most frequently occurring landscape subject. The spontaneity implied in his quick, thick brushstrokes belies the strong sense of structure and pattern which underpins all of his painting. Auerbach’s London is in a constant state of flux, providing the artist with a complex and ever-changing system of signs. Auerbach draws every morning, often creating hundreds of drawings in his pursuit of a subject and using these to ‘…suggest how the whole painting could be organized.’ Auerbach is one of the most important post-war painters, not just because of his legacy, but because of the huge contribution he made in the form of artistic innovation. The deliberate restrictions he practiced forced him to be creative even with the smallest of things. The talent created a painter, and the passionate restriction created an artist. Frank Auerbach declined knighthood in 2003 and currently is one of the most internationally collected living artists. After a focused retrospective exhibition at the Hayward Gallery in December 1978 he was chosen to represent Britain at the Venice Biennale where he won the Golden Lion for his collection. In November of 2001, BBC 2 broadcasted Frank Auerbach: To the Studio, a film by Hannah Rothschild. He was the subject of a large retrospective at the Tate Galleries in 2015-2016 and his work has sold at auction for over $4 million.

  • Francis Bacon  (+)

    Biography : One of the major British artists of the post-World War II period, Francis Bacon is renowned for his paintings of single subjects represented in isolation, their faces and figures distorted in grotesque style. The artist’s emotionally charged, raw vision of human beings is a testament to his understanding of the suffering and alienation that afflicted mankind during the second half of the 20th century. Born on 28 October 1909, to English parents in Dublin, Ireland, Bacon left home at seventeen and travelled to Berlin, then Paris. Settling in London in 1925, he began working as an interior decorator and later started to paint. His breakthrough came in 1944, with the triptych Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion, whose distorted subjects, rendered in dark colours and rough brushwork, firmly established his style. Starting in the mid-1960s, the artist mostly produced portraits of friends and drinking companions, and following the 1971 suicide of his lover, George Dyer, his art became inward-looking and preoccupied with the passage of time, as evidenced in his Study for a Self-Portrait –Triptych. His works can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington DC, and the Museum of Modern Art, New York. According to Sotheby’s Mei Moses, the average compound annual return for Francis Bacon resold at auction between 2003 and 2017 was 13.9%. 87.1% of 31 such works increased in value.

  • Tracey Emin  (+)

    Biography : British-born artist Tracey Emin is perhaps as well known for her provocative and sometimes outright controversial artistic practice as her tempestuous personality (she has frequently been referenced as the “enfant terrible” or “bad girl” of British art). Emin initially studied at the Medway College of Design beginning in 1980. She dropped out of the College after only two years, but in 1987 she enrolled at the Royal College of Art in London. While in London, Emin became involved with a number of young avant-garde artists, including Damien Hirst and Sarah Lucas, and the group was eventually called the Young British Artists. Although they began exhibiting together independently, it was the gallerist Charles Saatchi (who gave them a group show in 1992) who is credited for discovering and promoting their work. In 1993, Emin had her first solo exhibition at White Cube gallery in London. In 1999, she was shortlisted for the Turner Prize, and she exhibited what is perhaps her most famous work My Bed (1998). Although Emin garnered more than her fair share of notoriety in the 1990s, owing partly to both her radical artwork and a series of scandalizing televised interviews, she has stepped back from the public spotlight in recent years, and, today, continues to live and work in London. Her work has been acquired by a number of significant collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Tate Modern, London; and Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.

  • Adrian Heath  (+)

    Biography : Adrian Heath was born in Burma in 1920. Arriving in England at the age of five, he studied painting in Cornwall before enrolling at Slade School of Art, where he met artists such as William Coldstream, Lawrence Gowing and Victor Pasmore. During World War II he was imprisoned in a Bavarian prison camp, where he started experimenting with abstract forms and shapes whilst in solitary confinement following his attempt to escape. The war years proved crucial in the development of his analytic, abstract approach to form, which he always privileged over realism and figuration. After WWII, Heath returned to the Slade to complete his study. Although he was to retain links with Cornwall throughout his life, the impact that London and Paris exercised on his artistic production shaped the future of his work, which grew out of a cross-fertilisation between the classical abstraction which was typical of London, and the romantic abstraction of St. Ives. Upon his return to England, Heath joined The London Group, and his studio at Fitzroy Street soon became a meeting place for many intellectuals of the time. He was interested in art theory and wrote a manifesto-like text entitled Abstract Art, its Origins and Meaning, which was published at the same time as his first solo show was held at the Redfern Gallery in 1953. Between the 1960s and ‘80s, Heath’s work was often selected for inclusion in important survey shows, such as those organised by the British Council (British Art Today, which toured the USA in 1962), the Tate Gallery (St Ives 1939-64), and the Hayward Gallery (British Drawing, 1983).

  • Damien Hirst  (+)

    Biography : With a flamboyant personality and penchant for self-promotion, Damien Hirst is perhaps the best-known British artist living today. Born in Bristol in 1965, Hirst had a lackluster early career; his work as a student at Goldsmiths School of Art has been described as undistinguished. But in 1988 he made a name for himself by organizing Freeze, an exhibition of student work that would later be considered the origin of the influential Young British Artists or YBA’s, a loosely affiliated group of Hirst and his peers such as Jake and Dinos Chapman, Tracey Emin and Sarah Lucas who would dominate the British art world in the 1990s. Having maintained a preoccupation with the concept of death from an early age, Hirst has utilized preserved, dead animals as the primary material in a number of works, most notably The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living (1991), a tiger shark cadaver suspended in a tank of formaldehyde solution. A work based on similar artistic imperatives, Mother and Child (Divided) (1993), comprising four tanks each containing one half of a severed cow and her calf, won him the prestigious Turner Prize in 1995. Among his widely collected pieces are from his colorful series such as Spot paintings, Butterfly paintings and Spin paintings. The artist’s works belong to numerous museums worldwide, including Tate Modern, London, the Astrup Fearnley Collection, Oslo, and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. In September 2008, Hirst made the unprecedented and historic decision to bypass the traditional art gallery model and sell more than 200 works at Sotheby’s New York, ultimately surpassing the sale’s high estimate of $177.6 million with a total of $200.7 million. According to Sotheby’s Mei Moses, the average annual return for Damien Hirst is 0.6%, with 88.7% of woks increasing in value.

  • David Hockney  (+)

    Biography : One of the most important artists to emerge in Britain in the 1960s, David Hockney first gained attention while he was a student at the Royal College of Art in London. Hockney was featured in the 1961 edition of the annual Young Contemporaries exhibition at Whitechapel Art Gallery, which heralded the arrival of the new Pop aesthetic in the UK. In 1964 he moved to from London to Los Angeles and began painting scenes of Southern California life – rolling hills, swimming pools and modernist architecture – that were often infused with homoerotic themes. He also focused on landscape, in paintings, collages made with Polaroid, mural-scaled horizontal format landscapes and stage sets. Hockney has continued to investigate the relationship between perception and space as well as technology in a series of iPad drawings. A major retrospective of his work organized by the Tate Britain, the Centre Pompidou and the Metropolitan Museum acknowledged the artist’s long career, which continues. Still active at age 80, the artist is represented in major collections around the world including notable holdings by the British Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Hayward Gallery. For those collecting Hockney the market remains positive. According to Sotheby’s Mei Moses, the average compound annual return for Hockney resold at auction between 2003 and 2017 was 10.7% and 80.8% of 52 such works increased in value.

  • Peter Monaghan  (+)

    Biography : Since his first one man show in Dublin in 2002, Irish artist Peter Monaghan’s career has gone from strength to strength. Exhibitions in Dublin, Bristol and London as well as mainland Europe, Asia and the USA have attracted critical acclaim and commercial success. His commissioned work can be seen in prestigious locations such as the V.I.P. Presidential Suite in Dublin Airport, the Gibson Hotel in the Point Village and the Beacon Clinic. His submissions are regularly accepted into the Royal Hibernian Academy’s annual exhibition. Peter’s work won national recognition in 2010 when he was awarded the National Allianz Business to Arts Award for commissioned artists. Collaborating with architectural firms such as Scott Tallon Walker and O.M.S., Peter has produced installations which are both aesthetically beautiful and problem solving. Peter’s pieces work on a variety of levels. They move, they excite, they sing out, they intrigue. They are joyful and what they celebrate is the relationship between the creativity of the painter and the response of the viewer. Peter Fitzgerald in Circa Art magazine talks of the Ôviewer being empowered…the artist offers up a configuration of infinite possibilities. It is a humble thing to do as it puts the final agency back into the eye of the viewer. A humble artist, now there’s a thing! This humility is evident in Peter’s own description of his work, Ômy work is the result of a disciplined research into the experience of looking Ð the experience of pure visual sensation and aesthetic pleasure. However his conceptually rich work goes far beyond this and his exploration of the dynamism between 2d and 3d ask challenging questions about how we see art. Indeed Livia Hurley of the Irish Arts Review said of his award winning, site specific piece for One Grand Parade in Dublin, Monaghan even incorporates a natural element, sunlight, into his exploration of looking. When reviewed in the Irish Times newspaper, Ireland’s pre

  • Marc Quinn  (+)

    Biography : Contemporary British artist Marc Quinn is a notable member of the Young British Artists, an influential group of artists who came to prominence in the art world during the 1990s, including Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. Quinn’s sculptures and installations examine identity, media and perception through corporeal experimentation with bodies, including his own. Many of his works are often challenging and shocking, either due to scale, violence, or avant-garde innovation. Quinn studied the history of art at Robinson College and worked as an assistant to Welsh sculptor Barry Flanagan in the 1980s. He received recognition early in his career, and was the first artist to be represented by art dealer Jay Jopling, founder of White Cube. Among Quinn’s best known works is his 2004 commission for the first edition of the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square, a monumental marble sculpture showcasing the pregnant body of Alison Lapper. Quinn is one of the most commercially successful artists in the United Kingdom, and has consistently donated much of his fortune from art sales to charities helping refugees, the homeless, cancer and environmental protection, and accepts many commissions or auction projects in the name of charity. He has held solo exhibitions at prestigious institutions in more than twenty countries including the Fondazione Prada, Milan; the Tate Modern, London; Royal Academy, London; the National Portrait Gallery, Washington D.C.; and the Museum of Modern Art, Dublin.

    Biography : Bridget Riley is an abstract painter who came to prominence in the American Op Art movement of the 1960s, after her inclusion in the 1965 exhibition “The Responsive Eye” at The Museum of Modern Art. There, her black-and-white paintings—which created illusions of movement—were shown alongside works by Victor Vasarely, Richard Anuszkiewicz, Frank Stella, and Ellsworth Kelly, among others. In the late '60s, she introduced colour into her work and went on to win the Prize for Painting at the 1968 Venice Biennale. Since then her work has unfolded through numerous groups and series that engage the viewers' perception to induce simultaneously shifting patterns of forms and changing, optical mixtures of colours. Over the past decade, she has also made large, black-and-white murals that shape and articulate the environments they occupy. Her work is ultimately inspired by nature—“although in completely different terms,” she says, adding, “For me nature is not landscape, but the dynamism of visual forces—an event rather than an appearance.” Riley is exhibited internationally at top galleries and museums including the Serpentine Galleries, New Museum, Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Whitechapel Gallery, Tate Britain, MoMA and the National Gallery of Victoria amongst others. Her current market is very strong and continues to grow, with top auction result of over £4m at Christie’s.

    Biography : Natasha has a life-long passion for art that was fully realised when she began to sculpt 7 years ago. As a life drawing student she fell in love with the intricacies of the human form but also felt hindered by two dimensional paper and canvas. The clay, rendered from the earth, offers the full circle of the human experience... our connection to the earth, its ability to nourish our bodies and souls, and provide the essence of our creativity - the natural world. Sculpture gives Sedaghat the means to express the beauty, strength and integrity of the female form. Her bronze sculptures embody the power of women, not only physically but also psychologically. Sedaghat has lived in Los Angeles for most of her life and completed her BA at UCLA and her Masters at CSULA.
