The first exclusive print release with Selfridges will be Therapy (featured above), by Maxim, part of the famous band The Prodigy, launching on July 1st. A limited-edition print of just 20, in this work Maxim explores the finer details of his characterised Warrior butterflies, invoking not only the beauty of these creatures but also opening your mind to the positive energy of his world.
“In music you are always aiming for perfection, you are never 100% happy. Art is much more liberating than that; even mistakes can be beautiful. People think I am being controversial for the sake of it, but that just isn’t me. I have a dark side to myself; I’m drawn to the dark and that is what I want to explore. I want viewers to experience that darkness and see a side of themselves in it. It’s not just surface, it’s about going deeper, mining something, swirling around in the storm, in the madness.” – Maxim
Maxim’s artwork explores the darker side of humanity, often playing with ideas of beauty, decay and horror. The butterfly has become a reoccurring motif in his work, escaping the darkness. Whether representative of life, death, or reincarnation, Maxim encourages his viewers to explore this concept of darkness with him.
As part of their exclusive Selfridges drops, Tap Galleries are also collaborating with UK artist Joe Webb. Turner has sold his work for several years, watching his popularity grow amongst new generations of art buyers and collectors. Webb’s recent edition releases have sold out in just a few hours.
