Florence you are a beauty! Here’s a small selection of one of our favourite street artists: Clet Abraham! ⛔️
We are particularly fans of Clet’s artwork because of his ability to engage with an already existing design and then go ahead and create something completely new and original from it. Often ‘simple concepts’ that make you think “ah I could have done that” (then why didn’t you?) are the most ingenious; because we really couldn’t have, that’s why they’re the artists. Clet’s street signs also demonstrate the fun that exists in a world that often takes itself far too seriously and they can’t help but make you smile when you come across them. Enjoy!
In the season to be jolly, Camberley certainly didn’t disappoint and played its part in embracing the festive cheer with the charismatic and dynamic duo Stavros Flatley putting in an energised performance before turning on the Christmas lights and kicking off an incredible fire work display. For the uninitiated, this memorable topless dancing Cypriot family posse were celebrated and highly entertaining contestants from a bygone era of Britain’s Got Talent.
Following on from our recent trip to Miami at the start of the month (read about it here) , we returned to the highly popular venue ‘After Glo’ @ Glo Hair Salon for our Christmas exhibition. As usual, it was very merry with bubbles, cocktails and our signature eclectic mix of artists on show. A special thanks to those that made the evening and another thanks to those who purchased.
In the build up to Christmas we joined the Mayor Dan Adams in dressing up as Santa for a really enjoyable time fundraising for the Surrey Heath Mayor's charities: the Meath Epilepsy charity, the Frimley Health charity and Health Amplifier! Thank you Camberley for all the support you showed us across the town and your generosity that day and evening was exceptional.
Christmas came early for Reem Gallery as we ventured off to sunny Miami for the world renowned Art Basel Miami.
Over the course of the week we spent time with gallery artists Thirsty Bstrd, Pure Evil and the Connor Brothers and met artists from other spectrums of the contemporary art scene such as Irish painter Vincent Devine and Italian sculptor Lorenzo Quinn. We were also invited to meet for the first time American street artist Kai, known for creating the universally recognised “IF” character.
Having explored every notable art fair in Miami from Art Basel, Context Miami & Art Miami, PULSE, the Untitled Art Fair to Scope Art Fair; we have left absolutely buzzing from the outstanding strength and diversity of the contemporary art market. We look forward to returning in 2019!
