Bringing Your Brand To Life Through Art



Even though I was out of town for the launch night, the exhibition was a huge success and it was nice to be up there with the likes of D*Face, Eine, Evan Hecox, and Gerald Laing. We are in talks for a further exhibition in October. But in the meantime here are some photos of the show. If you would like to be kept up to date on any future shows please email

Beautifully British – Press Release

‘Beautifully British’ is an exclusive collection of art by established and emerging British artists. The exhibition will be showcased at the iconic Playboy Club London between August 6th and September 5th 2013 and has been curated by London-based art consultancy Wade Contemporary in collaboration with London’s Stolen Space Gallery.

This show represents the latest in a number of successful art exhibitions hosted by Playboy Club London. Members of the club and visitors to the exhibition have the opportunity to view and purchase the works exhibited by Joanna Gilbert, Charlotte Hopkins-Hall, The London Police, Charlie Anderson, D*Face, Eine, Evan Hecox, and Gerald Laing.

The artists and works featured represent a broad range of artistic backgrounds, which have informed a multitude of different styles and approaches to Fine Art in the 21st century. All of artists exhibited are British with the exception of Evan Hecox, an American, whose unorthodox treatment of the London skyline and artistic endorsement of nonstandard British motifs offer an interesting comparison to the work of the homegrown talent.

Each of the works manifest their own profound and unique ties with Britain in their own profound and unique ways, and each work on show has been produced as a result of a prolonged interaction with the idiosyncrasies of British culture. Where the work of D*Face offers a challenging socio-political assessment of life in the UK, the vibrant and visually complex work of Joanna Gilbert offers a celebratory nod to the cultural phenomena of everyday artefacts as iconic symbols. Likewise Gerald Laing’s inclusion in the show is based on his status as being one of the most important proponents of British art in the last 50 years whose pop-prints, here of Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss, smartly explore a very British fascination with fame.

A private view of the exhibition will take place on Tuesday 6th August. Prices for the artworks on view range from £500 to £18,000.

Please contact for enquiries on commissions and artworks.

Following on form the Battersea work I completed recently I am really happy with this piece. I am not sure what it is I love about it so much but I feel it is balanced both in composition and in colour.

The use of a gold background really sets of the contrast of the cadmium red.

The angles, shape and form are very in tune with where my art is at the moment and this piece would look good in any commercial space or lounge which is where this one currently is!

I came across this amazing blog by Jon and Tina Reid who’s ambition is to photograph London in a year and write a photographers dream guide book containing inside tips and tricks of the best way of photographing London in 2013.

Having been completely bowled over by his awesome photos of battersea I contacted him directly to see if he would be happy to collaborate with me on something very exciting that was ticking over in my mind.

The speed of making things happen was instant thanks to the technology of what we have at our fingertips and it is for this reason know what art I am creating next.

Without wanting to give to much away just yet I will leave you with a link to jons blog which I urge you to follow and to his flicker account of battersea power station which forms the basis of my composition.

More to follow soon…

Following from from the huge impact of branded art in the Harringay branch of Anthony Pepe & Co, Charlie Perdios commissioned commercial artist, Joanna Gilbert to another set of works that would represent the brand in their Palmers Green Office.

The North London Premier Estate Agent have recently won Gold for the Best Small London Estate Agency of the Year. Their great vision extends to an understanding of the benefits of branded art in their offices and the added impact it has on the office environment and they way it boosts client perception of the brand.

Charlie commented, ‘The Branded Art we commissioned for our office has exceeded our expectations; The use of corporate identity mixed with the essence of our business really compliments the environment our customers see and the feedback we have had has been really positive. The artwork has actually formed the inspiration of our printed communication too! I would recommended Joanna completely as her interpretation of the brief really added value to our offices and how we communicate our message to our clients.’

When interpreting this brief, Joanna took a birds eye view and saw the pattern of the roads as the framework to her art. ‘I presented a few ideas but knew that I wanted to depict the character of the town with the local amenities. We had certain colours to work with, to keep in tune with the brand and the art simply evolved from there.’

Following on from the abstract architecture theme I am working on I am excited to show you this painting as it developed.

It is amazing how a painting can change each week. That is the beauty of underpainting and over painting. Oils are so rich and versatile.

Here are a series of snaps showing you how a couple of my paintings have progressed. They are now nearly finished and will update soon.



At the moment I am exploring using architecture as inspiration for my art. I am building up a body of work that will be on show in February / March next year.

Buildings and Commercial spaces are so inspiring. The use of colour, texture, angles all combine to create something special and unique and I enjoy extracting this personality and turning it into art.

I have already created a number of works which I will show you here. But watch this space for details of the collection.
