Edinburgh graduate Molly Kent has been awarded the Degree Show Purchase Prize this year – for ‘Society Reproduces Doubt’ to join the University of Edinburgh’s Art Collection. This is a notable achievement – congratulations to Molly whose work will now be used in teaching and housed amongst many other talented alumni artists.
We tipped Ella Squirrell as an investable artist in April last year (read tip here) and her career is continuing to flourish – with regular shows, residencies and sales. As demand for and interest in her work increases, her prices will see a 20% increase on Friday (May 29th) this week. It’s another great time to invest!

Now in its twelfth year, this carefully curated exhibition offers a unique opportunity to see some of the best emerging talent in Scotland under one roof. We have some beautiful new work available by Emma-Louise, all work is available to […]
FBA Futures 2020 – selected artists I sent a newsletter out in October sharing my thoughts about Mark Bletcher: “I also have a good feeling about Mark Bletcher – he’s got something very special going on and I personally just acquired his piece ‘Catch Up For You’ – to me he really stands out.” I’m not alone in noticing Mark’s talent, […]

As a result of Moma Wales Prize 2019 and 4 exhibitions in the last […]
Portrait of Britain 2018 winner, Vikram Kushwah is gaining significant recognition, this time with selection for the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2019 – a leading international competition, which celebrates and promotes the very best in contemporary portrait photography from around the world.

He is attracting buyers at the moment and enquiries about his work are increasing – good indicators that his sales (and therefore prices) are likely to see increases. With an extensive exhibition history (since graduating in 2012) […]
