Ever seeking smaller independent art and design creatives, we came across Oak Gallery and fell in love with their simple, organic limited edition prints (originals coming soon)

They are still trading and with just a 10 day turn around, it won’t be long to wait to get your hands on one of their beautiful prints.

Find something in their collection to adorn your wall. Currently with a sale running there is many beautiful pieces at very affordable pricing.

They say;

Oak Gallery is a french studio of art prints in limited edition founded by Marine Echavidre.
The visuals are born from graphic and plastic experiments created thanks to a combination of mediums such as ink, watercolor, acrylic, collage or monotype process.
Each collection is mainly defined at first place by a natural color palette (as terracota, ochres, clay, quartz…)
The next part is dedicated to the exploration of textures and transparencies through colors and shapes.

Beyond the subject, the interest of her work is primarily focused on the composition, the unexpected associations that can appear between forms, colors and textures revealing a kind of abstact, lunar, sometimes unworldly landscapes without a specific attachment with space or time.
