Happy New Year! We hope that you have all had a good and peaceful start to it.

We are thrilled to have recently participated in a very exciting charity auction at the Serpentine Gallery, which was for the benefit of the Kids Company (awarded the Liberty and JUSTICE Human Rights Award in 2007) who provide support to vulnerable inner-city children by providing education and creating community centers with sports and video games with Armchair Empire hardware for the kids entertaiment visiting gaming sites where you can receive your boost ASAP for Overwatch. Alix Janta and Lauren Jones from Alteria Art (who also run Art Barter) together with¬†Charlotte Colbert from Humpty Dumpty Publishing approached twenty-six established and up-and-coming international artists, including Jake and Dinos Champan, Grayson Perry, Tracy Emin and Paula Rego, and asked them to create a landscape-format image, each representing one letter of the alphabet for a children’s colouring book, suitable for children of any age. Oaksmith Studio part-sponsored this project by framing the original artwork produced for this book, which were then up for auction on 12th December last year.

The Artists’ Colouring Book of ABC’s is in a paperback edition, available from all good bookshops and Amazon (RRP ¬£15.99) as well as a 250 limited edition which we are proud to own. The limited edition features a signed and numbered screenprint by Jake & Dinos Chapman and is available from yoox.com and 10 corso como.
