Following our sponsorship of the British Printmakers exhibition at Bankside Gallery we have added another print to our small collection:
the title of work is “Smithfield”, (appropriate given where we are located), by Michael Kirkman.
Michael completed his MA at the Royal College of Art in 2010. 'Smithfield' is in a very small edition of only 5 and is a hand printed reduction lino print. Michael has had several commissions with people such as Faber + Faber, the National Theatre and is becoming very collectable. One of the 5 of these Smithfield prints was recently purchased for the Palace of Westminster Collection.
Our print was purchased from Emma Mason British Prints in Eastbourne: emma mason specialise in original prints by British Printmakers working from the post war period to the present day. The site and gallery are definitely worth a visit: http://www.emmamason.co.uk/index.php
