Gifts for Your Valentine

Ditch the flowers and chocolate this year and go for a more meaningful present, carefully picked from our collection of Gifts for Your Valentine. This holiday can be rife with cliché and presents that are lacking in sentiment, so make sure they know you care and choose the gift of art. This collection is a celebration of all things related to love, whether shown through the beauty of nature in flowers, or through the tender embrace of lovers in figurative art. Whether they’re a fan of photography or a lover of collage, you’ll find something to suit a range of taste and style in our collection below. Love can take many forms, and this concept can be observed through a wide range of styles and subjects on offer in this collection. You’ll find some of the more recognisable images of romance such as hearts, flowers and birds here, as well as vibrant abstract works that convey a deep sense of emotion without making use of direct imagery. We’re on hand to guide you as you buy your next artwork. Whether it’s your first time purchasing or you’re already familiar with the process, our curated collection makes it easy to find the perfect present for your lover this Valentine’s Day. Narrow down to find exactly what you’re looking for by using our search filters for size, price and orientation. Karenina Fabrizzi is an Italian artist whose work exudes a sense of romance, with portraits interwoven with floral designs and imagery from the animal kingdom. There’s a sense of delicacy to her paintings, yet she avoids drifting into the clichés and imagery that is so typical of so much floral art. Instead, these canvases are imbued with a slightly dark and mysterious atmosphere that entices the onlooker, inviting deeper contemplation. If you’re looking for something heartwarming to gift this Valentine’s Day, then take a look at Louise McNaught, a British artist who explores the many sides of the animal kingdom. Many of these paintings depict two animals together, such as her charming piece, Soul Mates, making Louise’s work an ideal present for a partner. What makes Louise’s style so special is her unique admiration for the animal kingdom that shines through in every piece, and she uses a palette of bright neon colours and a mixed media approach to communicate this emotion. Fans of dreamy landscapes should check out Yuliya Martynova, a Kazakhstani artist working with watercolours. Her interesting style toes the line between figurative and abstract styles, and what at first appears to be just shapes and forms eventually emerges as clouds or the sea from above. We love the way in which she works with colour, with each hue bleeding beautifully into the next. You’ll also discover prints from leading conceptual artist Tracey Emin, whose work often addresses the theme of love. In particular, she has created a series of neon light sculptures with romantic quotes and expressions, which you can find in the form of prints here. You might recognise her work from St Pancras station in London, where one of her light sculptures states “I want my time with you” in a slanted script.

Works to Warm This Winter

Make your home a cosy sanctuary from the elements with our collection of Works to Warm this Winter. It’s easy to let the longer nights and chilly weather get you down, but art can provide a source of comfort and inspiration throughout the colder months of the year. We’ve worked to bring together some of the most bright and uplifting pieces of art from contemporary artists, with a variety of different mediums and styles on offer. Choose between prints, photography and paintings to brighten your interiors when the weather’s miserable. Our Works to Warm this Winter collection is based on the idea that art can help to lift the spirits during difficult times.

Terming her work ‘dreamscapes’, Trudy Montgomery is a British artist who works with abstract art and landscapes that speak to the soul. Drawing heavy inspiration from the sunny shores of California, a place she’s called home for fourteen years, Trudy uses a warm and uplifting colour palette that will have you dreaming of warmer days during the winter months. We love her simplicity in the composition that has an almost meditative quality, inviting the viewer to sit and contemplate these calming artworks. Fans of photography should explore the work of Nick Miners, a landscape photographer obsessed with the unique beauty of Iceland. While these landscapes may not be particularly warm, they are certainly astounding in their beauty, encouraging us to embrace and celebrate the more positive aspects of winter. Many of his photographs are shot from an altitude of over 6000 feet, which has the effect of abstracting the subject and reducing it to the line, colour and form. What’s more, Nick also shoots photos of brutalist architecture, focusing on the interplay between the severe lines of these buildings and their often colourful surfaces. One of the top five viewed artists on our website, Kristjana S Williams is an Icelandic artist who takes an imaginative approach to her practice. Her animal collages showcase some of the fabulous colours of tropical birds, insects and other beautiful creatures to create an undeniable sense of warmth and charm. These animals are often juxtaposed against the backdrop of an urban landscape, highlighting their beauty and also creating a fantastical, dreamlike world that is easy to lose yourself in. Her artwork is perfect for nature lovers and fans of travel alike, with images of famous landmarks from across the world and some of the animal kingdom’s most interesting specimens.

Her neon words are contrasted against dark backgrounds and poetic text, making them both eye-catching and thought-provoking. Through her work, Mason makes commentaries on increasingly modern society and our responses to this in terms of love, money and our relationships with each other. For those who are looking to get their hands on some photography, we recommend the work of Gina Soden, a British photographer who has gained recognition from prominent awards and institutions including the BBC. She takes an architectural approach to her work, exploring the interiors of derelict and abandoned buildings that are decaying yet beautiful. There’s a sense of melancholy running through these artworks that view the past through a nostalgic lens, placing emphasis on grand and opulent structures that have since lost their sheen.

You can use our handy search filters to narrow down artworks according to size, orientation and price to find artwork that’s perfectly suited to you or your loved ones. Lovers of abstract shouldn’t miss out on Jinsheng You, a contemporary Chinese artist whose pieces are bursting with colour and emotion. Learning from his father at a young age and drawing inspiration from masters of Chinese calligraphy, he creates abstract landscapes with a rich palette of reds, golds and blues. Curators have drawn comparisons with Turner due to the vivid skies and atmospheric quality to his paintings, although this style has certainly been reimagined for the contemporary art scene. More interested in a figurative style? Take a look at Peter Hawkins, a British artist with an unconventional approach to his practice. Rather than using traditional materials such as canvas or paper, Hawkins searches for found surfaces such as old school desks or floorboards to create his paintings. The resulting effect is a beautiful contrast between the smooth oil paints and the rough, weather surfaces that he paints upon. He addresses a range of different subjects in his work, spanning from solitary nudes to images from childhood such as brightly coloured desserts and toys. Get lost in the moody landscapes of Nadege Druzkowski, a French painter whose depictions of wintry environments are perfect for the Christmas season. Showing scenes such as snow-capped mountains and deserted roads in the countryside, Druzkowski creates a solitary and eerie atmosphere that makes her paintings so captivating. Her dark vision of the world are inspired by concepts of memory, time and absence, and she is particularly interested in how the line between past and present can become blurred. Alternatively, brighten up your collection with the work of Kotaro Machiyama, a Japanese artist who creates bold and vibrant abstract pieces. While these paintings are simple in form and composition, Machiyama compensates for this with his daring choice of colour to create pieces that are uniquely interesting. The concept of space is central to his work, and you’ll often find large stretches of one colour that have pushed other colours and shapes towards the edges of the canvas.
