Brendan Hansbro

We were introduced to local artist Brendan Hansbro by his partner (and good friend of Map Gift Shop) Lisa. We were intrigued by his surreal and slightly spooky collection of animal wood engravings which he has translated onto china.

The monochrome mugs and plates are available exclusively from Map Gift Shop.  

Brendan is best known as a printmaker.  He is represented by the Curwen Gallery in London who commissioned the double Unicorn image they use as their gallery logo and impressive swinging sign.

Brendan's next exhibition with Curwen Gallery titled Panoply runs from the 5th-26th May in the upper gallery space.
"Instantly recognisable, and yet, as they have never been seen before, famous architectural landmarks from many different parts of the world have been re-interpreted in this exhibition of paintings by artist Brendan Hansbro."
