It’s been another scorching week here at Red Propeller HQ, putting us all well and truly in the holiday mood. Speaking of sunny climates, the immensely talented James Baker is back in the UK after concluding his ‘Artist’s Year in Residence in Australia’. As many of you will know, James wrote a series of blog updates for us while he was away, his work going from strength to strength inspired by Melbourne’s constant stream of visual delights.  
As the popular Australian artist Johnny Romeo says;
“James Baker works in a surrealist pop manner. His works refigure exotic history, mythology and modern times. I have been particularly impressed in the way the conscious and subconscious are always present in his paintings”

BUILDING ON STRONG FOUNDATIONS
As you know here at Red Propeller we love to give you a creative treat to tantalise your cultural taste buds and this week we’re thrilled to announce the grand unveiling of our newest artist David V Johnson.
We’ve all been blown-away by his powerful and expressive semi-abstract collages and after meeting him in person here at the gallery on the weekend, we’ve decided the only way to properly introduce him to you is to host his mini-show ‘SCHIZOPHRENIA’.  Featuring characters/personalities extracted from the original image, developed, mashed up and then exposed - all together in the final pieces  here at Red Propeller HQ.
While we chatted to him in the summer sun, we found out that he’s a rather multi-talented chap and how juggling two roles actually enhances his creativity;
“I work as an architect and I’ve painted for most of my life. I think that the painting - the way I paint is, in many ways, a reaction to the technicalities, procedures, intricacies and bureaucracies that I have to deal with in making buildings. Architecture is great - but the work is full of compromises. My paintings are really (initially) for me and have a lot of me in them.”

*SQUATTING STARLET LIMITED EDITION PRINT*
We can clearly appreciate the strong personal relationship David has with his artwork and by looking closely at the detail, you can start to interpret how he’s cleverly manipulated the original source material such as record covers ranging from Shirley Bassey to The Hammond Sauce Work Band.
To coincide with the launch of his solo show here at the gallery, we’re not only giving you the chance to own your very own David V Johnson original but we’re also releasing the stunning ‘Squatting Starlet’ as a VERY LIMITED EXCLUSIVE Red Propeller Print (60 x 50cm, edition of 25, £60).

David V Johnson Interview Continued…
Which of your peers would you say inspire you creatively? My wife & I have been visiting galleries and meeting artists for years. We spend a lot of time in the far west of Cornwall which has its obvious inspirations and we’ve met loads of decent people there. Artists I respect for various reasons (and who’ve somehow influenced my work) are Chris Anthem, Sam Bassett, Andrew Litten and Michael Rees (all Cornwall based).
How would you describe the process behind creating your collage pieces? I love old books, magazines, records and things that start as interesting objects - with interesting images (often very little to do with the actual content). I love the way they become worn/distressed/repaired over time and eventually become something very different and often more interesting. I think I follow this process in an accelerated way.
So can you tell our reader anything more about the story behind the new piece Squatting Starlet or Satisfaction? These pieces, as with a lot of my recent work, start as an object or graphic that I find to be special in its own right. They evolve by the addition of bits of other characters, images, text, paint, glue, tape etc and then I add my own markings which unify it all.

A SUGARY TREAT!As most of you will know BBC One’s phenomenally successful ‘The Apprentice’ is back, and this time the urban art world has been high on Lord Sugar’s moneymaking agenda; the task to hold an urban art exhibition. Whether you’re a fan of the show or not, as they say ‘there is no such thing as bad publicity’ and all this media coverage has certainly created a buzz here at Red Propeller HQ. With the team representing Artrepublic’s artist winning the day and Lawrence Alkin, Artrepublic’s very own CEO, joining the panel on ‘You’ve Been Fired’ as the street art expert, the announcement that their boutique gallery in Soho is going to be exhibiting some of TRXTR’s original works should be big news to our regular readers.
We are so proud of our very own TRXTR’s phenomenal success. After his recent high-profile London show ‘Pretty Lethal’ picking-up rave reviews and strong sales, a show stateside planned for later this year and now Artrepublic and Opus Art both jumping onboard, we think there is no time like the present to celebrate with an EXCLUSIVE Red Propeller TRXTR week. We have two originals for you 'Digital Mother' and 'Salome’s Sister' at £375.00, collage on wooden panels, 26 x 18 inches.
