August has been a busy month for ARTful collaborating with Caiger Contemporary on three of our sites across London.

Caiger contemporary are an online based gallery using the benefits of pop up exhibitions and art fairs to exhibit and promote their gallery and artists. Upon meeting at the Affordable Art Fair earlier this year,   it felt the perfect opportunity for Caiger to collaborate with Artful providing a new window of opportunity to showcase an array of their artists works.

88 Wood Street, EC 2 has been transformed by various works by artist Colin McCallum. Colin lives and works in Barcelona, Spain. Recent works reference hotels, airports, malls and pools and the relationship between the artificiality of man made structures. From satellite dish to objects, these elements of the modern landscape are connected in the mind of the viewer.

Different techniques are used for specific images, the medium must relate to the subject. Rather than illustrate, Colin records a visual equivalent of the emotions and ideas related to each. Although these paintings can be viewed as abstract they are strongly derived from reality.

ARTful have also introduced hanging pieces at 123 Buckingham Palace Road, SW1W by artist Vaughn Horsam. Vaughn is a London based artist and architect. He thinks a lot about the patterns which we create, live inside and leave behind. His artworks are inspired by the systems, memories and patterns of a synthetic world. They begin as experiments, cut into the skin of painted surfaces and raw materials.

And over at Tower 42, intricate works by Jessica Ward are being displayed across the 1st floor lobby area. Jessica has a strong interest and is strongly attracted with the striking architectural nature of trees, focusing in particular to the patterns which are found and formed within tree canopies and wooded areas as the branches crisscross and intersect resulting in abstracted, even disorientating  patterns, forms and different scenarios.

As well as giving visitors and clients to the building something to talk about, Artful also love having the tenants benefit experiencing artwork within their work environment. The provision of art should be recognised as key in helping to create energy and bring colour and life to otherwise sterile environments, whilst not detracting from a commercial and business-like reality. It can help make your building become an inspiring place to work and to visit whilst bringing affordable art to your door.
