If I had a couple of hundred pounds to spend on art I would spend it in Jealous and I would spend it on Madga Archer’s work.
I stumbled upon Magda’s designs completely by accident at the end of last year, thanks to the print below. I was watching the documentary about autism with Chris Packham and spotted this huge print in his home, with the Wire Fox Terrier, and immediately had to stop the programme to hunt down the artist. Unfortunately I found the print was £225 (here) which was outside my spending money, but I had found the artist, Magda, and could follow her on Instagram.
Instagram is so great for keeping up with artists you love, so if they do release short runs of prints for special events you can get a chance to own their work when at other times you might not be able to, so I was able to get a chance to get one of Magda’s Feminist designs before Christmas by being a follower on Instagram.
So in December I was able to buy a small print via Jealous Gallery, as well as do a good old fashioned cut out and keep job when Magda’s Brexit Print was featured in a newspaper one week.
If you want to check out Magda’s work and buy a piece for Valentine’s you can do so via London’s Jealous Gallery. I did so before Christmas and was very pleased with their customer service. Browse here.
