Introducing British Artist Guy Gee and The Art of the Stamp...
We are delighted to introduce you to the London based artist, Guy Gee. Through his work, he explores the merging boundaries between graphic design and contemporary art. He successfully melds the world of postage stamps with that of printing to create groundbreaking, innovative and fresh compositions that are aesthetically charming. Each artwork reminds us of places we've been or would like to visit. We love the beautiful detailing and intricacy of each of Guy’s postage inspired artworks in his latest series of works, The Terence Stamp project.
The Terence Stamp project is Guy's curated selection of postage stamps from around the world, most notably from Asia. The postage stamp, invented in England in 1840, revolutionised global communication. All nations quickly adopted the concept making it their own. As the first form of mass media graphic design, each stamp tells its own cultural narrative, celebrating everything from commerce and innovation to art and agriculture. These miniature hand engraved artworks are digitally revised by Gee and printed on 400gsm G. F. Smith card.
