We look forward to seeing more work from this lady.

Litho printing with Matisse, Picasso, Miro and other legends of painting, Mourlot studios still holds a wonderful history in it’s 15,000 sq ft studio which is over two floors with a gleaming glass roof. Somebody please, please, please take me!
I get the feeling with Tom Edwards he’s taking the piss a bit, but I think a lot of great artists do that. His work is really funny and I love it and it’s great to see that it’s really popular in Beach. A really old woman brought one of his prints, which has a guy on a magic carpet on it. It’s nice that everyone can appreciate it.
Yannick and Chloe have redesigned their website. It’s a lovely, clean design that is easy to navigate through a world of the most amazing screen printed work and installations. We love Seripop.

Bonjour Jean-Jacques are two cool kids from Paris. They’re really young graphic designers and are doing some really interesting stuff. Their work is very trendy I guess – a lot of internet art but they seem very grounded in art history, which I think stands them out from a lot of the Tumblr internet art types and marks them out as ones to watch…
This coming week we have Charlie from Beach London contributing to our site. He has a lot of awesome things lined up for your viewing pleasure. He clearly has an eye for all things that are awesome because he directs what is on display in his store. We are very fond of this guy and he likes to make a strong punch at his private views.
I have just been introduced to the amazing work of Richard Lohse, who started off creating systematic oil paintings and later went on to produce some killer prints. I love how his work looks like the dither on a low resolution digital image yet it is created by manually placing blocks of colour with perfect registration.
Wow, these guys got in touch with us in regards to the new Jiro Bevis t-shirt they have printed, but it doesn’t end there…just go take a look for yourself. Rad.

Hannah is an old classmate of mine and probably one of the best drawers that I know. Then she started translating her drawings into huge lino cuts and other large scale prints. Totally mind blowing.
One of the biggest trends in graphic design at the moment is the use of bold, overlaying colours and lots of warped / scanned typography. Pretty much everything that I love. This post is the work of Amsterdam-based design studio Drawswords, which was founded by Rob van den Nieuwenhuizen (NL). The studio’s work is characterised by visually strong, clear and refreshing content-based typographic solutions. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Please keep sending your wonderful printed matter to us via mail and we will create a feature page for all things posted.

Yoshi Sodeoka is a multidisciplinary artist and musician from Yokohama, Japan, who’s lived and worked in New York for more than two decades. “Sodeoka’s psychedelic video art—informed by his background as a painter, punk rocker, and electronic musician—is a dystopian clash of noise and beatitude.”

I just stumbled across this article about print taking a long time to die. It was written almost 2 years ago but still seems to be the case. Long live print!
Emily has a great sensitivity to colour, layout and cleanliness with her work. Crisp clean lines and gradients are a pleasure to the eye. We really love her style. Go and buy some of her prints.

Jim the Illustrator is bloody brilliant. He does a bit of everything, including playing music in a dinosaur suit and stand up comedy.
Bob London does a hell of a lot of drawing. Lots of which are applied to t-shirts, sweatshirts, art prints or pants. Very fun illustrations to browse through.

Patrick describes himself as an “inter-planetary bounty hunter” and his work reflects that statement. He has just updated his site and we’re blown away with the trippy imagery, grainy textures alongside the wizard-like colours and bitmaps. We definitely want one of these prints on our wall.

The London based artist Marie Err summarises her work as illustrations, screen prints, comics and stupidity… And indeed, she doesn’t make the usual ‘soft girlie drawings’ ; her work has obviously some playful graffiti influences. Besides her nice drawings, she also makes great illustrative typography.
