NOMA BAR PRINTS LAUNCH | Two New Editions for Prescott and Conran's Lutyens
June 6th 2014
Wednesday evening saw the launch of two specially commissioned limited edition screenprints by graphic artist Noma Bar at a private event held at Lutyens wine bar and bistro on Fleet Street, marking the second collaborative venture in an ongoing project between Eyestorm and Prescott & Conran. Angie talks more about project and the wine-inspired works below.

In late 2012/early 2013, Peter Prescott, long-term and ongoing business partner of Sir Terence Conran, approached me through a mutual artist friend with an idea. A wine bar he knew of in France had over the years created their own fine art print collection of works that were made especially for them and either featured the bar’s name or had some sort of relevance to the establishment. He loved this concept and wanted to recreate it at Lutyens, the wine bar and bistro on Fleet Street he owns with Conran, along with a couple of other London establishments that include Boundary hotel and Albion in Shoreditch. So we sat down and within a few months our first project was born; Lucie Bennett created a series of three limited edition prints that were launched in May 2013 at a private event at Lutyens, where they hung for a year, in prime position in the wine bar.

A year on, this Wednesday evening saw the launch of our second set of prints, this time by Noma Bar, who was asked to create two works. Highly regarded in the world of graphic design and illustration (he has illustrated over 200 magazine covers, published over 2000 illustrations and released two books during his 20 year career), Eyestorm started working with Noma to make high-end, signed, limited edition screenprints in 2013, which have proved to be very popular with our clients and so when this opportunity came up, we thought Noma would be ideal.

Noma’s approach to the new works, titled Full Bodied 1 and Full Bodied 2, comes from a combination of the concept of wine and its associations and the lateral thinking he applies to everything he creates. Taking the phrase ‘full bodied’, widely used to describe heavier wines, he takes the word ‘body’ literally and introduces a human presence into both pieces. Full Bodied 2, which features the torso of a naked woman with a cheeky, strategically placed wine glass, relates more so to its title, whereas Full Bodied 1 depicts the social side of wine-drinking as a man and a woman are brought together, their shoulders formed by the shapes that also create the image of the large glass of wine that sits in the foreground.

Although these works have been created for Lutyens, ultimately they will appeal to anyone with an eye for slick and intelligent imagery, an appreciation for high quality printing and perhaps also a love of wine.

Full Bodied 1 and Full Bodied 2 are available to buy online from today. Each in an edition of 50, they can be bought either individually for £595 incl.VAT each, or as a pair for £1,090 incl. VAT.

The two new prints are being exhibited, alongside two of Noma’s acrylic works, at Lutyens wine bar and bistro, 85 Fleet Street, London EC4Y 1AE (open from Monday to Friday, midday to 11.30pm). Feel free to drop by and take a have a look.

Perfecting a visual cultural exchange between East and West, Jacky Tsai is today a flourishing artistic talent. From early aesthetic collages of Western pop and traditional Eastern motifs simulating century-old tapestries, the London-based artist started a transformation seven years ago, creating a series of works informed by East Asian literature. Characters from Eastern novels and tales, in showdowns with Western superheroes were weaved into a colourful comic-style storyline. Two such wonderful works are The Erotic Dream of the Red Chamber and The Affair to the East, both based on the popular novels of almost similar titles from the 16th and 18th century.

It started back in Israel during the first Gulf War when Noma Bar was sitting in a shelter with his family, reading a newspaper. He came upon the international symbol for ‘radioactivity’ (black on a yellow background) and as he was looking at it, he discovered two eyebrows and a mustache, and saw in it the image of former Iraqi Dictator, Saddam Hussein who at the time possessed a threatening nuclear arms stockpile.

DO YOU OWN A DAMIEN HIRST PRINT EDITION YOU WISH TO SELL?
Valium
With two major exhibitions during the Venice Biennale, 2017 was a year which increased the awareness of Damien Hirst. With Hirst still actively releasing new print editions, many collectors focus on his earlier work from 2000 and before, such as Valium, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), Opium, Beautiful, Galactic, Exploding Screenprint (Spin) and Painting-by-Numbers.
