We are honoured to present the latest release from Bob Dylan's iconic fine art portfolio. The Asia Series is the artist's visual reflection on his travels in Japan, China, Vietnam, and Korea. Comprising people, interiors, architecture and landscapes, the series draws upon a variety of source material, from observational sketches to archival film and photography.
Presenting his audience with suggestive, open-ended scenes, Dylan leaves the viewer to continue their own narrative beyond the confines of the artwork. Executed in muted, evocative colours, Dylan’s painting follows the order of natural reality; in the artist’s words, ‘the idea is to keep everything where it should be’.
BOB DYLAN "MONDO SCRIPTO"
We are thrilled to present the early release of Mondo Scripto by Bob Dylan. The second instalment of the limited edition series continues the legendary songwriter’s own selection of his most renowned lyrics, each originally handwritten by him in pen on paper and accompanied by a pencil drawing.
These six hand-signed graphics showcase music released by Dylan between 1963 and 1966, including ‘Subterranean Homesick Blues’ and ‘Girl From The North Country’. Carefully curated and encompassing themes such as absent love, politics and loss, the collection explores the work of a cultural icon who has inspired audiences for the last six decades.
Behind the Seen
BARBARA VAN DEN BERG
In the series, Behind the Seen, girls are presented in exaggerated costume to emphasize femininity.
The name of the series is an appropriation of the theatrical idiom, ‘behind the scene’. For the artist, this references to what is behind the mere visible and behind the façade.
Employing both Pop and contemporary elements, she uses embellishments of puffed sleeves, large collars and crinoline dresses to emphasize the enduring power of female.
Her portrait compositions take from Old Master paintings and put in a dreamy, playful atmosphere.

ART IS LOADED WITH EMOTIONS
Weather it is visual arts, music or poetry, there is no need to explain in detail that all artists have created some of their best works when they were in love!
It is a feeling that moved them and boosted the creative drive, resulting in beautiful and powerful artworks.
So this is our major argument and we think there is no better gift for a each day.
"BACK AND FORTH"
Like most people, we found out about Mr Brainwash through the Banksy-directed documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop.
It tells the beautiful story of Thierry Guetta, a French man obsessed with street art, who made the segue into producing art himself under the pseudonym Mr Brainwash.
