'Bowie' artwork auction sale raises additional funding for local charities

On Friday 26th April we joined the Mayor and Mayoress of Surrey Heath at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in celebrating all the wonderfully diverse work done by individuals and organisations for the betterment of the community over the past year.

One of our small gestures was to donate an original artwork by Rob Bishop to be auctioned on the night. A huge thank you to everyone that bid on the magnificent Bowie portrait by Rob Bishop, which raised £1,000 at the Mayoral Ball, with proceeds going towards the selected mayoral organisations The Meath Charity and the Frimley Health Charity.

A huge congratulations also to the magnificent contribution Councillor Dan Adams and his wonderful wife Sarah have made to the community this year as the Surrey Heath Borough Council Mayor & Mayoress. Thank you for all you’ve done and will continue to do.

The stage is set: 'REBEL' exhibition launches in London on historic night

All the world’s a stage, and every October all the players make their entrances on the London art scene. From the galleries who launch their newest exhibitions to auction houses hammering down on their latest prized artworks to numerous weekend long art fairs; in this time the capital becomes the undisputed centre of the art world.

The launch night for Reem Gallery’s inaugural London show brought together art admirers, passers-by, collectors and artists into one merry and vibrant evening. Being surrounded by more traditional art dealers, our selection of carefully curated artists has been very well received as a welcome addition to the Mayfair and St. James area. It seems deep down there is a rebel in all of us.

Around the corner at Sotheby’s auction house, Banksy’s ‘Girl with Balloon’ sold for just over £1 million pounds and then was instantly shredded infront of aghast onlookers! An historic event for sure that was broadcast globally across news channels. A timely reminder too that despite its infancy, the street art movement is one of the most talked about genres in the world today and will no doubt have a lasting legacy.

You can catch Reem Gallery’s ‘REBEL’ exhibition until October 30th at Mason’s Yard, St. James’s in London.

Rolls-Royce "Ghost Stories" auction in support of Breast Cancer Care

On Tuesday 30th June, Reem Fine Art had the honour and privilege of being invited to attend a wonderful art collaboration event at The Royal Automobile Club on Pall Mall by Breast Cancer Care.

The charity event's purpose was to raise awareness and further funding for a serious health issue that will effect 1 in 8 people at some point in life. This form of cancer also effects men as well as women and this essential organisation exists to support us all on that journey after diagnosis.

Endorsed by Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, 12 critically acclaimed artists were selected to create their own unique interpretations of the famous Ghost car to be auctioned off in aid of supporting the continuous work of Breast Cancer Care. An eclectic range of artists were selected for the project including established household names such as Richard Wentworth and Angela Palmer, Turner Prize winner Mark Wallinger and film director Sam Taylor-Johnson. The occasion proved to also be a prime opportunity for collectors and philanthropists to acquire a collectable artwork from one of the UK's most versatile, popular and in-demand artists including JJ Adams, Charming Baker and Gavin Turk.

The auction night was a huge success achieving in the region of £100,000 through generous bidding and pledges made to a truly great cause. We're pleased to have played our small part, representing our client's winning bid on the JJ Adams's Back to the Future inspired "Outta Time" creation; shown below with Zaid Alexander Badda (Gallery Director).

Further information on the tremendous work and support Breast Cancer Care offers can be found at www.breastcancercare.org.uk

"Diana" by JJ Adams Sells at Auction Alongside Bansky & Picasso

At the Modern & Contemporary Prints auction at Bloomsbury on March 26th, a rare sole artwork by a rising British artist sat alongside works by some of the greatest artists of the 20th century. With prints on sale from the likes of Henri Matisse, L.S. Lowry, Marc Chagall, Dali and Picasso; the auction read like an art history exam pamphlet.

With a strong presence of Banksy artworks available toward the end, it was left to another phenomenal Brit to carry the baton and lead the bidders into the 21st century where all eyes were focused on lot number 280: A coloured Princess Diana by JJ Adams.

Eventually, once the bidding ceased and the hammer dropped, the Diana sold for £3,500. A hugely respectable figure that outshone the final prices on rival works by Banksy, Picasso and Chagall.

Two days later at midday JJ Adams launched his Spring collection which caused a frenzy in galleries across the country; with collectors and admirers queuing from the early hours for his public appearance in Brighton. By 1pm the entire portfolio was sold out from the studio. The aftermath confirming beyond all doubt to the art establishment that a new star had arrived!

Due to exceptionally high demand, Reem Fine Art currently has a small number of available signed limited edition prints since Saturday's launch. Available artworks include: Full Metal Twiggy (Colour + B/W), The Morning After, Nelson's Column and Dance with the Devil II.

(Please note all our DeLoreon, Tardis and Jolly Holiday pieces are sold out).
