2020 has been a challenging year for many working in the arts and we feel grateful to have been able to work with so many talented artists this year.
We are excited for 2021 and we are committed to keep bringing you the freshest contemporary art on the market and showcasing our artists in the best way possible so they can continue to thrive and bring joy to art lovers around the world.
This year we welcomed the following artists to Enter Gallery…
Exploring techniques of geometric abstraction, Geckor’s fun creations draw on his favourite characters from childhood. The 'spiralled eyes' originally used to portray bemusement in the characters, have heightened his warped designs and have now evolved into the signature detail of his work.
One keen collector who snapped up a few of Geckor’s originals from us says,
“As soon as I saw the Taz character when I walked into the gallery, I knew he was the next artist to keep an eye on for me.”
Geckor is currently working on a new exhibition with a local streetwear brand in his hometown of Dundee. The show will include originals, limited edition prints and a collaborative collection of streetwear.
Laced with double meanings that reflect his split personality, Maxim’s artworks ask us to see things from a different perspective with themes of rebellion and the rise of the underdog.
Maxim’s cat sculptures, ‘Rebel with the Paws’ were loved by many visitors to the gallery and have now completely sold out. The good news is he is currently working on new sculptures designed to spread love in 2021.
"I absolutely love what Rebel with the Paws stands for; love and positivity. In a year where so much has been so uncertain, my love of art has been a constant source of joy in my life. I had initially visited the gallery to view another piece of art altogether, but as soon as I saw Rebel my heart sang. I absolutely love what Maxim has created and the place he created Rebel with the Paws from – so creative, fun and joyful and a real talking piece!" Sarah
Brighton-based artist, Sam Bailey graduated from Central St Martins before working as a graphic designer for clients such as Virgin Atlantic, Virgin mobile and Royal Mail.
Her series of interactive artworks, Outside the Box uses colour to create a fantastic guessing games and a talking point for the home.
She is currently working on a new interactive series titled, ‘Outside the Bottle’ featuring 108 of her favourite gin bottles – although she claims she hasn’t tried them all yet!
Originally from Shanghai, Jacky Tsai designed the now iconic floral skull for Alexander McQueen’s 2008 Spring/Summer menswear collection.
Fusing traditional Eastern artistic techniques and imagery with Western Pop Art references, Tsai’s richly-layered pieces take inspiration from Pop Art icons like Lichtenstein and Warhol in a unique style that establishes balance between cultural extremes.
Best known for her provocative portraits of women, Lucie Bennett explores female identity and sexuality using simple, elegantly applied lines and block colour forms to create distinctive, timeless pieces.
Her latest release, Big Blue Bombom is a celebration of the ‘behind’, inspired by oversized works by artists such as Oldenburg and Newton. Speaking about the piece Lucie says, “In countries such as Brazil, the bum is very much an object of admiration; something that’s purposefully drawn attention to especially whilst on the beach in cities such as Rio de Janeiro, and I thought it would be fun to reference this in the title”.
Artist and musician, Ojerum blends classic sculpture, fine art painting and portraiture, with elements of natural wonder such as starry skies, spooky woods and breath-taking valleys, in small collages each with an enchanting narrative.
Having participated in group exhibitions in America, solo exhibitions in Copenhagen and a Visual/Aural Solo show in Rennes, France, 2018, OjeRum is now available for the first time in the UK at Enter Gallery.
Ojerum is currently experimenting with more figurative collages and is working towards two solo shows in 2021: one in Rome and the other in Aarhus.
Familiar yet refreshing, Anthony Freeman captures famous faces in electric hues. Abstracting classic photographs with his trademark streaks of colour, he brings his work firmly into the contemporary art world and we have loved seeing his use of vibrant colour on the walls at Enter Gallery.
