  • Lumiere London Festival

    Posted on 19/01/2016 by A Rum Fellow

    The first light festival has just closed and here we share a few highlights. The 4 night exhibition was spread across a few key areas of London, closing off roads so people could roam the streets and enjoy the installations. It was a brilliant event and I look forward to next years!  You can see more on the Lumiere Website here. 

    Here are a few highlights...

  • Runge's Colour Sphere featured in Elle Decoration

    Posted on 16/07/2014 by A Rum Fellow

    We are very pleased that Elle Decoration have given a full page feature on our 'Single Colour Sphere' print in their current issue. As colour addicts ourselves we love the scientific arrangement of colours in his of paintings, and the man behind them is fascinating too (more below).

    ELLE-DECOR-AUG-2014

    Romantic German artist Phillipp Otto Runge accomplished a great deal in a short life. A well respected painter, a poet, and a writer whose stories featured in Grimm's Fairy Tales. Above all this he was the pioneer of his age in the field colour.

    At the beginning of the 1800's Runge began exploring the range of possibilities of mixing yellow, red, and blue along with white and black. His aim was to test the limits of colour combinations and to map out the findings. This work resulted in his 'Farben-krugel' (colour sphere) a series of paintings that scientifically, and very beautifully, present the colour spectrum.

    Runge was struck by an early death just as his paper was published, and sadly never received the full recognition for his work. However we have these two colour sphere prints reproduced from his original paintings, a real treat for any colour addict! In addition to the series we have the beautiful 'Colour Star' print.

  • The Favela Painting Project

    Posted on 02/10/2013 by A Rum Fellow

    The Favela Painting project started in 2005 when dutch artists Haas&Hahn (Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn) had the idea of creating public artworks in favelas in Rio de Janeiro. Not just to beautify, but also to create a dialogue with their surroundings. Now they want to paint an entire favela covering a hillside above the city. They have a kickstarter page and aim to raise $100k to get the project going in 2014. More than just creating the worlds largest artwork, the project will repair and re-plaster buildings, train and engage the community, and ultimately transform one of Rio's poorest neighbourhoods.

    The duo at Santa Marta favela which was painted in 2010 by a team of 25 in just one month. It has rapidly changed from a dangerous area to a popular tourist destination.

    In 2008 the duo teamed with a famous tattooist to make this Japanese inspired design. Sprawling over exposed concrete that protects the hill from landslides, the work took 8 months to achieve.

    Support this amazing project here, and next time you visit Rio de Janeiro you can feel pretty satisfied with yourself as you enjoy the spectacular view. The kickstarter finishes 31st October.

  • Fresh Art

    Posted on 27/02/2013 by A Rum Fellow

    We are very pleased to be stocking the work of Spanish artist Eduardo Barba. On top of designing excellent art, Barba is an architect specialising in the restoration and reinvention of old buildings. He combines his architectural perspective with graphic design to communicate ideas and storys that he can't develop in his buildings. A fascination with simple geometric shapes and different methods of organising information such as charts and maps run through his work.

    Bold and beautiful, just the way we like it. You can buy prints here.
