We are fast approaching June, with Summer almost visible on the horizon. What a good time to look back at the last few months which have been exceptionally eventful in the life of Imitate Modern!
1. As you are probably aware the biggest news is the move of Imitate Modern from Devonshire Street to our new HQ. Imitate Modern is currently office based with an array of pop up events and surprises planned for the rest of the year.
We are also expanding online and are now represented on the online platform Artsy.
2. Tyler Shields has been causing a stir on Instagram with his photo featuring Liz C. Walker of the LA Ballet Company. This photo became his most liked photo on Instagram with over 20,000 likes and 1000 comments and over 3 million views on Facebook!
4. London street artist Stik completed a new painting of a family portrait – and as always, it’s been hugely popular! If you’re thinking of commissioning a piece by Stik, get in touch via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Imitate Modern is now a proud stockist of Taschen books. These beautiful books make a perfect gift and a wonderful addition to the coffee table.
Check out our book and magazine collection on our online shop.
6. We have a beautiful new collection of Rosie Emerson prints available on the online shop. These new artworks by the World’s Largest Cyanotype record holder are incredible examples of her feminine style, combining techniques with Emerson’s unique eye for colour.
7. Raymond Salvatore Harmon has also embarked into new techniques and forms producing a series of 3D paintings. These artworks reflect an interesting merge between sculpture and painting. The piece above demonstrates RSH’s Collapsing Dimaxion Forms, investigating the potential of expression into 3D space.
8. The Dotmaster is also always up for a new challenge. Having previously designed the interiors of the Louis Vuitton store in Tokyo, he has been invited to design one of the suites at the Exhibitionist Hotel in South Kensington: The Trash City Suite. If you don’t have a night at the Exhibitionist Hotel planned, satisfy your need for The Dotmaster with this Trash ‘n’ Cash piece, available on our online store.
8. Rich Simmons continues broadening his horizons, ad taking urban art to new locations. He recently debuted his work in Geneva, following successful shows in New York, and has produced a new series of Superhero paintings.

10. And of course last but not least, 80’s Kid by Paul Oz is on the way. A few of the images from the exhibition have already been unveiled, stay tuned to see more and prepare yourself for the exhibition at the beginning of June at 90 Piccadilly.
The exhibition will feature paintings and popular hand embellished prints. Red Lego Man and Either Do Or do Not, There Is No Try (Yoda) will be released as limited edition prints, email to get details and reserve yours. (Limited edition of only 50)
