Christmas Closing

gareth-pugh-topshop-christmas-tree-2-340x5401

I am now closed until 10am the 4th January. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your interest and support this year. It has been extremely encouraging during a difficult time for most of us. It sets me the challenge in 2010 to continue to find interesting items at realistic prices. . .

As I head off to Washington DC this Christmas, I wish you all a very happy Christmas and blessed New Year.

If you have queries whilst I am away, then please email me (ebury@mail.com) and I will attempt to respond as quickly as possible.

pb250058

An acrylic on canvas entitled ‘Me Me Me’ by Ian Robinson. . .

c.2009. . .

Measures:72cm high x 58cm wide. . .

Ian Robinson is a Northumbrian artist now living in London. The inspiration for this work was taken from a tube journey, when Ian spotted dozens of London ‘Metro’ free newspapers strewn all over the underground. The typeface reflects the Metro newspaper logo and the interpretation speaks for itself. He previously did one in blue and this commission is in bright shocking pink, the idea behind this was to convey both masculine and feminine selfishness.
