More New Math

March 30, 2009

I have heard the sentence “I could do that” more times than I care to remember in my artistic career so when I discovered this whilst trawling through ffffound it really made me laugh. You can find more of the same by clicking here.

Peril in the Petunias

March 26, 2009

It’s been very busy here at Elphick’s after the feature in Elle Deco. It’s great to know that more people are becoming aware of Elphick’s (the gallery/shop) and that we are the UK retailer of Charley Harper prints.

‘Upside Downside’ and ‘Gregarious Grosbeaks’ seem to be the firm favourites at the moment but I thought I would post an image of one of the NEW lithographs we have in stock. Surprise surprise I have opted for a print that doesn’t feature a bird, it does however feature my second obsession…flowers. ‘Peril in the Petunias’, Paper Size 38.7cm x 31cm, Image Size 30cm x 23.5cm. £40 + postage.

Order your print here and we will arrange delivery straight to your door.

Town Owl

March 5, 2009

Elphick’s is proud to announce the arrival of these beautiful screen prints by Lisa Jones. Printed by hand (Lisa’s I imagine) and measuring 50cm x 70cm they cleverly fit in an ‘off the peg’ frame. Makes adorning your walls with wonderful art very affordable, especially as these prints are an extremely reasonable £65 each unframed.

Anorak

March 2, 2009

Elphick’s is now stocking the wonderful kids mag ‘Anorak’. It’s made a welcome change in our house from the usual trashy girly mags full of fluffy bunnies and a useless free toy that Martha can’t resist. 

Anorak inspired her to write a story about a flying dog that came to the rescue of a family trapped in a burning high-rise (wow), well worth the £3.50 and no plastic in sight!

You can find out more about Anorak here.
