Stephen Walters

Stephen Walter’s most recent project is based around a large map of London. Titled The Island and originally a drawing that took the artist over 2 years to produce and requires a magnifying glass to view, an edition of prints have now been published of the piece, along with 33 accompanying editions taken from segments of the main piece, which represent each London Borough.

Geographically accurate and highlighting the city’s main landmarks, main roads, railway lines, built up areas and green spaces, The Island is Walter’s selective listing of London’s history, trivia, local knowledge and stereotypes. Informative but humorous - the work often includes trivia on celebrities done on purely capricious and impulsive grounds – this spoof of an historical map of the capital is an intriguing and spectacular piece that can be viewed for hours. If you would like a map of a specific London borough, please contact us and we can tell you what we have available.

Stephen Walter creates landscapes where objects are slowly taken over by their symbolic representations, creating forests of geographical map symbols and places where every inch is mapped and quantified for human purpose.

The ‘awe’, so revered by Walter, is presented by the sheer volume of symbols, paired down and separated from their real state. Tackling the notions of our increasing distance from the land and the outlook of a deeply troubling long-term future, Walter decides to use mundane elements of contemporary and municipal culture to hark back to a sublime space.

Here, technology and information provides a new wilderness, unavoidable within the realms of a contemporary sublime. The tight drawing process mimics the growing environmental concerns for the need to ‘cut back’.

Similands has now sold out due to it’s presence at 2007’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition where over 30 copies of the print were sold.

Allan Warren

Allan Warren began his photographic career at the age of seventeen, when a friend asked him to cover his wedding to Judy Garland... soon such celebrities as Liberace, Sir John Geilgud and Earl Mountbatten of Burma were beating a path to his studio. Since then he has photographed more legends than most, from Mae West, Gloria Swanson, Sophie Loren to Sammy Davis Junior, Cary Grant and Bob Hope. Sir Noel Coward commisioned him to do his portrait for his last Christmas card.

Allan has published four books to date: Nobs & Nosh, a colour picture book which included portraits of such diverse characters as Lilian Gish, Roger Moore, Danny Kaye, Nureyev, Dali, HRH The Prince of Wales, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and Henry Moore. Peter Ustinov wrote the introduction in which he said "and yet there is a third art in the world ...the art of Allan Warren".

He wrote the first part of his autobiography at the age of twenty four entitled 'Confessions of a Society Photographer'. Somerset's nephew Viscount Maugham wrote this in the introduction: "His success is being able to beguile, spellbind and fascinate and in doing so give confidence to his sitters".

He went on to photograph every living British Duke and produced a tome entitled 'The Dukes Of Britain' which has become an historical document in its own right. His latest book entitled 'Dukes, Queens and Other Stories' is the second instalment of his hysterically funny autobiography.

Allan now resides between his studio in London England and Los Angeles.

Drew Walker

Drew is working on a collection of graphite Portraits of Internationally known Filmstars, Rockstars, Sporting Heroes and Icons.

The Portraits tell the story of the subjects life through symbols and imagery and are an injection of Drew's own personality and the subconscious thoughts, emotions and feelings in his mind at the time he creates each Portrait.

Two simultaneous relationships within the Portraits exist: from a distance the viewer sees only the Celebrity; but when closer to the Portrait the “symagery” within the large scale faces comes to the fore.

Marilyn Monroe conjures love in equal portions with an ethereal ‘lotus’ hummingbirds and butterflies evolving within her face … The solidly contented spirit in the Dalai Lama is depicted as flying uncharted on the wing of a giant bald eagle … Angelina Jolie’s wild side is evoked by the gorilla in her hair and lion on her forehead whilst the swan and her cygnets on her cheek and jaw line remind us of her maternal instincts.

Truly bewitching, you need to see them in their larger form to understand and truly appreciate them. (Available in a Limited Edition of Signed and Numbered Prints).
