We’re thrilled to unveil our brand new art print collection, featuring four incredibly talented artists from all across Europe! As our showroom extension progresses, we knew that we had to fill the walls of the new space with something beautiful and interesting. We decided to create a statement gallery wall, and started looking for new prints to fill it with. We wanted positive imagery, bright colours and plenty of botanicals. When we discovered the four illustrators below, we knew that we had hit gold! All of these prints look beautiful when displayed on their own, but we’re very excited to unveil our gallery wall at the end of the month. For now, the prints are available to buy on our online store. Here is a little more information on each of the four artists.
Margo in Margate
Introducing our exclusive print collaboration with Margo in Margate! We’ve been admiring Margo’s prints on Instagram for some time now, so were thrilled when she offered to design nine prints that would be exclusive to Rose & Grey. Born in Ireland, Margo now lives in Ramsgate and produces her work under the ‘Margo in Margate’ moniker. She began uploading her prints onto Instagram as part of an experiment six years ago, when she decided to draw an image a day. She built up a following of people who wanted to buy her prints and began her Etsy shop. Her prints have now been featured in some of Instagram’s most stylish homes, including Lisa Dawson’s.
Spanish artist, Hermano Gato (translates as’brother cat’) produces beautifully simple prints that focus on botanicals. If you prefer a more minimal print or would like to curate a collection of complementary prints, these could be perfect for you! The illustration of the girl in her swimwear clutching a monstera plant has to be our favourite, but we love the idea of displaying the four plant prints together as a set.
If you’re searching for a print that empowers women, look no further than Fotini Tikkou. Born in Greece but living in Copenhagen, Fotini shows strong, independent and inspirational women in her illustrations, including curvy naked women, women with underarm hair and even a beautiful bright illustration of Frida Kahlo. Most of Fotini’s work uses mixed media, as she has said she enjoy both analog and digital drawing in equal measures. Alongside her prints, Fotini also works on illustrating children’s books, patterns and her own handmade ceramics.
Lieke van der Vorst
We love the level of detail in Lieke van der Vorst’s prints! The Dutch artist seeks inspiration from nature, her prints depicting everything from gardens full of vegetables to scenes from beneath the sea. Easily identified, her prints all feature her signature vibrant colours, whimsical themes and careful attention to detail. Naturally, Lieke is very conscious of the environment and her illustrations are all printed on FSC-certified Arctic paper which uses a minimal about of water and energy to produce.
