With the theme of nature as a backdrop, Maria converts the gallery into a fantastical jungle environment, complete with astro turf and tumbling flora and fauna, transporting us physically into her surreal world in which to explore her humorous and bizarre 3D collages. Mind your head! Using an array of sourced vintage ephemera Maria has made all new work from small exquisite pieces providing a glimpse into a magical world, to huge 3D boxed collages where you feel you can literally step right into a place of wonderment and beauty. Maria will also be releasing two brand new limited edition prints that will take your breath away. Inspired by a pair of 1960’s vista vision glasses given to her as a child, Maria tries to capture the evocative feeling of magical surprise she experienced whilst viewing the photos of animals and landscapes in 3 dimensions. Her time as a jeweller has naturally transposed into her artwork, which is meticulous, time-consuming and highly intricate.

Ian Hodgson is known for his skills with graphite on paper. For his show at ink_d Ian has produced a set of new work based on boundaries and territories. Stunning large framed originals, smaller works on board and the release of his first ever limited edition print which he debuts exclusively with ink_d for the show. Engaged with issues of identity, the work for this show explores the territories, both interior and exterior, that he inhabits. His sense of self and the physical spaces he moves through, frame and define each other, and it is this relationship that he seeks to represent. Ians skill in his figurative work is set off by both landscape as well as architectural images. Ian has recently become poster boy for Derwent pencils who asked him to test their new graphite blocks. His work can now be seen on their tins and packaging for the graphite blocks!

Ink_d Gallery announce their long awaited and much anticipated show with Stanley Donwood from 2 November to 2 December. Following on from their hugely successful exhibition with Donwood in 2009, ink_d welcome back the enigmatic artist most famous for creating the artwork for Radiohead’s album ¬covers. The exhibition ‘Occupational Hazard’ will contain in Donwood’s words ‘mild peril’ amidst original paintings and prints. On show there will be currently available work alongside rare and sold out editions such as ‘Twisted Woods’ from Donwood’s archive. What he means by 'mild peril' is, as usual, unclear. There will be an EXCLUSIVE new series of signed giclée prints from artwork such as Love Story, Rainbow Intergalactic Raiders and Scuffed Ink. These will only be available from Ink_d for the duration of the show. The first 100 people through the door at the private view will also receive a FREE SHOW POSTER (and some lovely cider). Although Stanley Donwood is best known for his artwork for Radiohead album covers, he has also exhibited worldwide, written books (including a terrible pulp detective novel), was (briefly) the CEO of a record company and is a relatively accomplished printmaker.

ink_d gallery is proud to present a solo show with Carne Griffiths Fragments – Drawings in Tea and Ink. Having first trained as an illustrator Griffiths undertook an apprenticeship as a gold wire embroidery designer which led to a 12 year career producing elaborate hand drawn embroidery designs for a range of prestigious clients and many of London's Savile Row tailors. ink_d has been showing Carne’s work since he rediscovered his passion for drawing in 2009. His unique style has attracted much attention and the artist already has many sold out prints and originals under his belt. His images explore human, geometric and floral forms, working primarily with calligraphy inks, graphite and liquids, such as tea, brandy and vodka. The work in this new show displays his unique style and skill and the gallery will be hung with many of the artists largest originals to date along side some of his smallest originals. We are excited to be launching 3 new limited edition prints Comfort, Guilt and a new triptych alongside a selection of some now sold out prints! If you have seen this artists work you will understand why we are so excited to be filling our space with his wonderful work. Carne Griffiths Fragments private view is on the 6th September from 6:30 – 8:30. The show runs from 7th September to 6th October.
17 AUGUST 2012 — 30 AUGUST 2012
Ink_d welcome back one of the UK’s leading tattoo artists, Alex Binnie. This time we celebrate the launch of his new book for which he has produced an extended and equally impressive collection of new prints. For several years Alex has used screen printing as one of his main choices of expression. However, most recently he has embraced woodcut printing as a way of exploring new techniques. This has allowed him to delve into the infinite possibilities that relief printing can offer. Woodcut has a close relationship with the history of tattooing, and so it provides a natural progression for the artist into furthering his printing disquisition. We have the pleasure to showcase Alex’s latest creation for which his inspiring friends and colleagues in the tattooing industry have served as impromptu models. Alex has been able to use a vast array of examples of woodcut art to define their shape, forms, tone, and personalities. This collection of portraits is now available in a newly released limited edition book. He will be signing copies of this book at the Private View on Thursday 16 August from 6.30-8.30pm. Please RSVp to firstname.lastname@example.org

Missum is one half of the artist collective Miss Bugs. This unique artistic partnership, founded in 2007, has produced a body of work that has achieved international acclaim and developed a passionate home-grown following. In early 2011, Missum began to explore her own individual aesthetic. Departing from the kinetic, graphically led collage style that had become synonymous with the work of Miss Bugs, Missum’s focus addresses a more traditional method of printing. This new approach, which incorporates the use of watercolours, collograph and drypoint etching, has given the artist’s work a darker edge that yet imparts a more feminine, softer tone. In these pieces, the artist can be seen to be developing her mark-making, whilst also addressing new themes and preoccupations. The work resonating feelings of isolation and loss whilst the delicately dark, sombre palette draws the viewer in to an unforgiving landscape.
16 SEPTEMBER 2011 — 9 OCTOBER 2011

For this exhibition Ink-d Gallery have specially commissioned a small series of new jam jar pieces and an exclusive range of reverse engineered collages. Also on show will be some larger pieces known as Industrial Scale Small World Re-Enactments and various editions including a new full colour book.

RYCA is back at Ink_d for a major solo show of new work this summer, but this time sees the first exhibition of his work under the name Ryan Callanan, establishing the difference between his work as his alias ‘RYCA’ and Ryan. Ryan’s background in sign manufacture and model making has helped him to develop an aesthetic that is becoming distinctly his own. The olde world traditional style of his work is core to everything he does while using a range of materials that he feels suits best each component. Ryan infuses new and old, not only in the subject matter but in the manufacturing process. The symbols selected for this show aim to connect with you; jog a memory, provoke a thought or spark a question. Shape recognition is a fundamental part of the way we communicate. Humans have developed millions of symbols for every kind of use. The associated meanings of symbols are something that varies, has changed over the centuries and is open to interpretation. When a symbol is taken out of its standard/ordinary context, it can mean something else. Does its environment play a significant part in meaning? Or what it is applied to? Or are some things to symbolic? At Ryan’s show at Ink_d titled ‘The Symbols Won’t Save Us’ you can expect to see a selection of hand-made works including; limited edition glass pieces, unique works, silkscreen prints, woodblock prints, micro canvas, key rings, scratch cards and more.
29 APRIL 2011 — 29 MAY 2011

11 MARCH 2011 — 10 APRIL 2011
UK renegade potter and leading anarchist Carrie Reichardt will be bringing an eccentric twist to all things British at Ink_d Gallery. As we built up towards the media mania of The Royal Wedding Reichardt has decided she just can’t take it anymore – and this show represents the Great British Empire as ‘Cruel Britannia’ through her unique anarchic vision. Subverting many of the British Establishment icons; Union Jacks, Royalty and Quaint English Tea Sets and customs, Reichardt sets out to smash the system but in rather genteel way…… As always, her work will be some of the most radical, politically charged (and really quite weird) ceramic and mosaic work you are ever likely to see in the UK.
21 JANUARY 2011 — 20 FEBRUARY 2011

29 OCTOBER 2010 — 21 NOVEMBER 2010
For the first time in his highly successful career, Dan Baldwin has created a show entirely devoted to work on paper. The idea for the show came from a response by artist and gallery to produce a line of affordable originals and wanting to offer something attainable between limited edition prints and canvas. Whilst the work incorporates many elements and subject matter that you would expect to see from Baldwin's paintings there is a new element that Baldwin describes as free and spontaneous. Working with oils, silkscreen and 3D extras on beautiful Italian hand-made, heavyweight 640gsm paper, Baldwin describes them as 'paintings on paper'. This exciting new show will consist of 12 originals on paper presented in simple wooden box frames, some new ceramic vases and a very small and very exclusive edition of hand-made prints. Also available will be a selection of limited edition silkscreen prints and very some rare and much sought after editions.
10 SEPTEMBER 2010 — 10 OCTOBER 2010

18 JUNE 2010 — 11 JULY 2010
We are pleased to announce Req's second solo show here at Ink-d Gallery. Req is an artist and musician whose roots are very much embedded in the early eighties graffiti and hip hop scene. Throughout Req’s long and varied career, the spraycan has never left his side and he has become a master of ‘painting’ with an aerosol. As an artist Req has worked alongside letterist SheOne, stage painting at Fat Boy Slim concerts, designing record sleeves for Mo Wax and painting billboards for Swifty’s Fosters Ice Street Art Jam. Musically, Req has had several record releases on Skint Records and Warp Records, produced albums for fellow painter and rapper Kid Acne and played some gigs in France with Steve Arguelles and Benoit Delbecq’s band Ambitronix. Along the way, Req noticed how spraypaint was a perfect medium for representing skin tones and his preference of the Pre-Raphalite ideals, as opposed to those of Modernism, led him to choose the female form as a reference for his work. His show at Ink_d Gallery entitled ‘Spraypaint Realism’ shows how Req has successfully married two forms of art that aren’t usually seen together – the traditional subject matter of the female nude with a medium only associated with Graffiti – the spraycan. In mixing together the two he has created something truly unique and beautiful. Alongside his ‘spray paintings’ there will be also be on show monoprints and pastel drawings. UPSTAIRS @ Ink_d - RYCA ryca is best known for his colourful and humerous pop inspired silkscreen prints but for his first show at Ink_d expect to see all original work. Watch this space for more details...........

Ink_d Gallery goes all 3D for our next show and brings you a selection of British artists who work in traditional methods but with a subversive nature and walk the fine line between craft and fine art. These artisans working in ceramics, glassware, mosaic, embroidery and fabrics are not just making beautiful handmade objects but also have something to say. Their messages are political, social and hard hitting. Anarchist ceramicists! Craftivists! Subversive sewing! You get the idea. Working in ceramics are renegade potters Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness, Paul Scott, Matt Smith, Dan Baldwin, War Boutique, Karen Wydler and Nick Reynolds. Creating extreme crafts are Jimmy South, Harriet Hammel, Screaming Lulu, Rosa Martyn, Sarah Corbett and The Craftivist Collective and Lori Bell. All these artists are brought together as their work answers a nagging in all of us: The need for a bit of subversion! In the words of Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness “The Revolution will be ceramicised”
15 JANUARY 2010 — 21 FEBRUARY 2010

For our current show at Ink_d Gallery we bring together two urban art heavyweights; Eine & Zeus. Both are prolific street artists and innovators in typography and both have pushed the boundaries in a way that has redefined how we see graffiti as an art form. Eine is best known for his alphabets and letters on shutters and Zeus for his three dimensional images and sculptures based around his writing style. They come together at Ink_d for ‘Crimes and Punishments’ where their collaboration has produced a heavy hitting alphabet in Pen & Ink. The show will feature beautifully framed original work on paper combining illustrations of crimes and punishments with Eine’s inimitable fonts and drawings of Eine’s hands by Zeus. There will also be our usual affordable screen printed show poster and an exclusive low edition print release available during the show. The rest of ink_d.

23 OCTOBER 2009 — 15 NOVEMBER 2009
Our next show at Ink_d explores the power of the portrait and the status it gives its subject through painting, print and drawings. Featuring new work from Aimee Parrott, Foundry, MissBugs and Sten & Lex ‘The Power of Portrait’ will inspire questions of identity, biography, diversity and fame, which lie at the heart of portraiture and how the artist interprets their subject. The most powerful and recognisable image to the human eye is the human face. A portrait is an artistic representation of a person in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to show a likeness or capture the qualities, personality or mood of the subject. Upstairs @ Ink_d We continue the theme of portraiture with work from Alex Binnie, Zachary Walsh, Simon Dixon, Req and introducing to the gallery Jack Joiner, Jane Sampson and Laurie J Proud.
11 SEPTEMBER 2009 — 9 OCTOBER 2009

All the artists have been set the same brief; 25 items of a certain size at the same very affordable price. You seriously won’t believe what you will be able to pick up! Each artist will also be submitting a piece to go into a very limited edition collectable box set.

Req’s one line figures, originally developed in the 1990s, are reworked in new scenes for his show ‘Apparitions’ alongside his beautiful work on the female nude. Req's figures represent a focal point of the feelings of Harmony and Mystery encountered during the artist’s wanderings around Brighton. These figures were designed primarily as a balance away from depictions of specific people towards a symbol of the feminine principle.
31 JULY 2009 — 23 AUGUST 2009
Ink_d Gallery and Studio announce an exhibition of new paintings by one of today’s most talented and exciting figurative painters Zachary Walsh. For his show at Ink_d titled ‘Greek Street’ Walsh has created a body of work using visual imagery from Greek Mythology to represent characters with which the artist has a relationship turning Gods, Goddesses, Nymphs and Monsters from myth into reality. A figurative painter in the truest sense, Walsh ultimately paints portraits in a traditional style on the one-hand, and then fits those perfectly around carefully chosen graphic imagery and abstract backgrounds to create portraits that are consciously contemporary and edgy. As a result Walsh’s work is full of interesting juxtapositions which strangely compliment each other. ‘Ancient Europe had no gods. The Great Goddess was regarded as immortal, changeless, and omnipotent; and the concept of fatherhood had not been introduced into religious thought. She took lovers, but for pleasure, not to provide her children with a father. Men feared, adored, and obeyed the matriarch’ ‘The Greek Myths, Robert Graves’
19 JUNE 2009 — 12 JULY 2009
Ink_d Gallery and Studio proudly present young, vibrant artist Lidia de Pedro’s first solo show.

Her flamboyant and colourful compositions have proved popular with her series of prints based on her family. She is a natural born traveller and loves to move to new cities and indulge in all the cultural differences and fun she encounters. She has a passion for creating powerful, thought provoking images, trying new techniques and experimenting with materials. Also showing UPSTAIRS @ INK_D is Brighton based graffiti artist IMBUE presenting his first solo show 'A World Gone Mad'; an exhibition highlighting controversial issues surrounding everything that is wrong with modern society but with a good dose of humour . The show will feature an installation, 3-D work, original canvases, paste up work, hand finished screenprints and a film.
