New edition Glitter Glitter Everywhere completed for Blain Southern and the Print and Poem Series at the Royal Academy of Arts
We have worked with some wonderful artists during our ten years at Jealous. Every now and again though it goes beyond this and you work with some of your heroes. The Chapman Brothers are just that and developing our print relationship with the artist duo following the launch of screen print ‘Bunny Dreams’ was a great way to finish off 2017. Master printer Jess Wilson was tasked with finding a way to create their signature smiley face image as a full colour glitter print. After much testing, taking great care to avoid one glitter contaminating the other, the full edition of 100 created with black, red and white glitter was released and almost immediately sold out by gallery Blain Southern, London and Berlin. We have since continued work on the series of Smiley faces for the Chapman Brothers completing a more exclusive larger version as well as proofs for potential multi colour version. The iconic image was developed further and formed the 2018 edition for the prestigious Print and the Poem launch at the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy of Arts in May. Entitled Glitter Glitter Everywhere the edition is available from the Jealous Gallery.
Rokesly Art Week x Jealous x Ben Eine
Jealous were thrilled to be invited back to Rokesly Junior School for our annual Art Week Project with the kids of Year 4.
With previous projects including a protest in the school playground, a giant jigsaw and finally collaborating with Ai Wei Wei.
So who better to call in for our 2018 project, than our long-time collaborator and friend, Mr Ben Eine.
For this project, we created a 1 colour screenprint in Eine’s iconic Circus font which read ‘Imagination’. We then armed the kids with every colour of Sharpie to collaborate with Eine to add handfinished colour.
And best of all? We got to have our annual school dinner! Huge thanks to all the kids and staff at Rokesly for a brilliant day!
