BRP - Street Art Contemporary Prints

BRP had their first opening since their successful Brian Adam Douglas show which aimed to show a range of contemporary street art prints.

According to the gallery:

Since 2007 BRP has been marking our artists’ developments in drawing, painting, printing and collage with the editions that we publish.  Yet printmaking holds a unique status for those artists who work on the street: it serves not only to mark progress but it is also integral to the art making itself.  It is through large-scale printing, etching, screen-printing and stenciling that artists who choose to work in the urban environment have been so prolific over the last couple of years.

As street art and the artists who use the city walls as their canvas become increasingly recognized as contemporary artists by the mainstream museum infrastructure, many of our prints have found themselves in the archives of national arts institutions, namely the Tate and the V&A in the UK, who also want to understand and mark the story.

BRP also was selling a limited edition book of the event, which game with a D*Face print which was out of 150 and priced at £125.  Those sold out at the show.

The show may not have been the best example of what BRP has to offer (for example, some of the other shep HPMs and stencils they've shown recently are incredible) but this collection may have been soley V&As work.

Regardless, always fun to go down there and have a couple beers while looking at art!
