I am delighted to announce that Mimi Leung has recently been awarded the Central Australian Art Society's Advocate Award for a painting from her Alice Springs show, entitled 'ASP: Revisiting the Masters from Alice Springs. The painting shown here on the left is by and entitled How Are you? If you'd like to know how Mimi ticks, here is a brilliant interview she did for FRESH Magazine (pgs 12-15). I'm a huge fan of her work myself, if you are too, you can buy How Are You and more of her work HERE

Eighteen Thirty Seven has been with us for 12 weeks now and is off to a great start!
The work we have on there is both excellent and varied but there's so much more to come. In a couple of weeks, more artists will be added, including some outstanding photography, illustration and painting - there really will be something for everyone.


The image above (Lucia) is by John. R. J. Taylor who studied photography at the Royal College of Art in the eighties, his work has been exhibited all over the world ever since, and I'm proud to say that he'll be joining us here on Eighteen Thirty Seven very soon! Along with several new artists, a brand new LIMTED EDITION section will be making an appearance - signed, number editions of 150 will be on sale and will make prints that are already very special, even more so.

I have so much more great Eighteen Thirty Seven news to share with you but I'll keep this short & sweet. Keep checking out the Eighteen Thirty Seven online shop and website for new artists and work... art makes the most brilliant of gifts (just ask my family!)

Bye for now x

The Eighteen Thirty Seven Launch is Nigh

It was quite some time ago when I saved up all my pocket money to buy this beast of a printer, and, whilst it's been great for reproducing my work, it needed more action.

After a couple of RCA buddies asked me about reproducing their work I decided that it would be great to reproduce lots of RCA buddies' work... and sell it... and that's where Eighteen Thirty Seven comes in.

The Royal College of Art is the only wholly post graduate art school on the planet and it's the only one that I had ambitions to attend whilst a small child.

Eighteen Thirty Seven launches on 1st July and is an online store, selling quality prints by RCA graduates at affordable prices.

Here are some brilliant Mimi Leung prints flowing off the press...


Once printed, everything gets ready for their photoshoot, including the all-important Eighteen Thirty Seven plan-chest I bought off ebay!


Each artist will select a charity of which 5% of every sale will be donated to. Forget IKEA! What lovelier way to adorn your walls with art.

Please check in when we launch on the 1st July and tell all your friends! Follow us on twitter and spread the word.

There are currently 1o artists on board and any interested RCA graduates should email for details of how to get involved.
