Ideal for bigger surface areas, corridors and alcoves is the option of printing the selected artwork/images on to wallpaper or acrylic. Make effective use of tight and potentially dark corridor space with illuminating artwork on toughened glass covered acrylics images, as shown with the ‘Four seasons’ tree prints as featured in the Jurys hotel Islington.
Using art in glass and mirror combinations can be shown to maximum effect in the rooms at the Renaissance hotel in Heathrow airport, U.K. Printing a half image of landmarks onto toughened glass, and placing on a right angle to a plain mirror in a coffee/kettle recess creates a superb full image effect.

Manor Art…As seen in all the best places.
French artist, Patrice Murciano’s ‘NEW POP’ style hits the international art scene with a wave of excitement.
Far from the classic route of fine arts, self-taught Patrice has come a long way since drawing portraits at the age of six with his mother’s make-up. Patrice thinks of art in motion and muses the emotion of bodies and faces, probing into the human soul, which is then reflected in his portrait pieces. He has experimented with many different styles throughout his career, taking inspiration from great artists such as Picasso, Pollock and Basquiat and, although not always shown in a public forum, he continues to paint in a variety of styles to express his thoughts.

However, Patrice is best known for his new pop style of art. The technique was something Patrice actually fell upon accidentally. In 2012 he was working on a portrait of pop music legend David Bowie in black and white when a spot of colour dripped on the canvas. Patrice said: “I found this an interesting concept and so began to work further on the technique of adding spots and drips of colour on top of canvases that I had already painted in black in white.” His major influence for this style is from portrait photography but he also takes inspiration from artists such as Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol as well as different forms of ‘street art’. With new pop, Patrice’s work represents a primordial energy exploding from the light of the white backgrounds or the chaos of the black backgrounds. The drips of colour are a reflection of the eternal movement of life. The subject for his works are a mixture of celebrity portraits, for example Marilyn Monroe, Bob Marley and Mick Jagger, combined with iconic pieces of art, such as the Mona Lisa, the girl with a pearl earring and Van gogh’s self-portrait.
Patrice commented: “The work of which I am most proud is the portrait of Jean-paul Gaultier. I had the honour of meeting him in person to present him with the finished painting. I’m pleased to say he loved it and has shown it in both New York and London. It will also soon be shown in Paris at his exhibition ‘From the streets to the stars, planet gaultier’, which reflects his 30-year career as a designer.” Patrice’s work has been exhibited in both French and international galleries and he will be showing a further 30 pieces at the Mikael Murciano gallery in paris this spring.
Over recent months we have noticed an increase in the requests for strong coloured frames and mounts, particulary red and black, which give an oriental feel. And those with a high lustre lacquered finish have a very definate Japanese influence.
The LJ Komodo Range from Arqadia, is on trend with its red and black colours and lacquared finish. The contemporary profiles are hand rubbed to reveal accents of black or brown giving it an aged look. They are ideal for all types of artwork but particularly photograpy and oriental styles.
