  • What is Abstract Art?

    The practice of abstraction in art refers to the use of 'gestures' to suggest the subject rather than creating accurate depictions of imagery. It can apply to different components of a piece, including colour, shape, line and composition.

    The origins of abstract art began very early in the 1900s, during the Modern Art movement, when rapid technological advancements in the West meant that artists needed to find new ways to represent the world around them and its hastily changing ideas and possibilities.


  • World Animal Day – Our Love of Animals and their Impact on Art
    October 4th is World Animal Day. It dates as far back as 1925 when Heinrich Zimmermann organised the first celebration in Berlin, the mission of which is to unite the animal welfare movement and raise standards around the globe, giving a voice to those who can't speak for themselves....The date was specifically chosen as it is the feast day of Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals, beloved among Catholics and recognised for his remarkable way with animals and all living things....All around the world, animals have a strong impact on culture, and this is especially so in art. The treatment of the animal kingdom has long been raised through the arts.

  • Father's Day - Art, Accessories and Gift Ideas

    With Father's Day (Sunday 20th June) just around the corner, now is the ideal time to start looking for that perfect present for Dad. 

    It wasn't until the early 1900s that Father's Day became an official holiday – with the US leading the way as one of the first nations to do so. However, it is possible that the annual celebration of fatherhood could have begun even earlier. Evidence can be traced back to 1508 and a Saint Joseph's Day marked in Catholic Europe.
