Cultural Ties

David Shrigley, Louise Bourgeois and Peter Blake tie-up Fitzrovia's newest boutique gallery.

Cultural Ties

Back in 2000, 80 of the world's leading artists were commissioned to produce bespoke artwork for an exclusive range of neckties for a charity project. The ties were to be presented in a Perspex case, numbered and sealed with an anti-copying hologram. Each tie had the artist's signature embroidered on the reverse. Only 300 silk ties from each artist were created. Then it went quiet.

Eleven years later American art dealer discovered the horde in an Essex garage. Some of the original signed artworks accompanied the work.

"It's such a fantastic opportunity for our little gallery to show work by artists of this level in such an unusual form. Who wouldn't want a David Shrigley or a Peter Blake tie?" ~ Nancy Victor
