Agathe Sorlet - New Releases
We're down to the last few in our editions of amazing optical illusion prints by Milan based artistic duo Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla (a.k.a Carnovsky). Using red, green and blue filters and a special RGB printing technique Carnovsky have created a series of prints that reveal secret images; when viewed through the opposing colour filter, layers of illustration in the prints come to the foreground, with the rest of the imagery becoming almost invisible, MAGIC!
Carnovsky, La Selva, Limited Edition of 20, RGB Print, 75 x 110 cm, £870 unframed, £1250 framed
As well as being beautiful stand alone pieces, the 'La Selva' series of prints have three hidden images. When viewed through a red filter you will see all the creatures of the daytime such as monkeys, a pelican, a toucan and hares, use the green filter and you will see the plants and foliage of the animals' habitat, the blue filter reveals all the nocturnal creepy crawlies and underwater creatures including spiders, alligators, bats and lizards. Available in two colourways, the paler 'La Selva' and the darker 'La Selva Notturno', we're down to the last few in the edition of each of these prints, so please do get in touch if you'd like one!

The book includes a special set of red, green and blue filters that you can use for both the prints and the illustrations in the book and takes a trip around the world exploring the creatures, habitats and nocturnal life of locations all over the globe using the RGB technique.

Inspired by colour afficionados Pantone's predictions for 2017, Blue Monday seemed the ideal time to introduce a bit of colour to our blog and brighten up a rainy day in East London. We've got a huge range of beautiful and bright artwork - below we've picked out some of our favourite shades for 2017
Lucille Clerc's latest collection of prints are the perfect antidote to grey january days in the city, filled with fresh foliage, exotic blooms and abundant growth, Lucille's amazing prints bring spring time to your walls whatever the weather's doing outside. You'll also be bang on trend; Pantone have picked 'Greenery' as 2017's hottest colour, pairing it with lush palm shade 'Kale'.
Anthony Burrill's cheerful Every Day Beautiful is the perfect 'rise and shine' print, radiating positive vibes that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face. It's also a stylish choice, with 'Primrose Yellow' also being one of Pantone's picks for 2017
If you're feeling a little colour shy don't worry, there's plenty of opportunity to add highlights and vibrant flashes with prints like Hey Studio's Peak - composed mainly of muted greys, the artists have used bright pops of colour in small details to lift the piece. They've also perfectly tuned in to another key Pantone colour trend for 2017 - 'Pink Yarrow' combined with 'Flame' orange.
Feast your eyes on the full Pantone 2017 trend prediction swatch below and brighten up your day with some new artwork from the online store
