MYLANDS AND FINN STONE
COLLABORATE TO PAINT A MAJESTIC PICTURE
Mylands is proud to announce a collaboration with British artist Finn Stone in which he has recreated the iconic Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, 1985 by Andy Warhol using Mylands Colours of London paints, wood stains and waxes on 3000 cut paintbrushes set on board.
“This collaboration is a celebration of innovation and craftsmanship and represents the very best of British in art, design and colour. We are incredibly excited to be working with Finn, a passionate and talented artist with a unique style and cutting edge approach to contemporary design. Mylands has been painting history for over 130 years with sumptuous rich colours and exceptional formulations that have truly stood the test of time.”
Dominic Myland, CEO
Finn Stone is a London born sculptor represented by Maddox Gallery, one of London’s leading contemporary art galleries. His exuberant energy and joy of life provide an inexhaustible source of inspiration, which embraces the most diverse creative disciplines. Stone’s work shows a love of diverse materials ranging from aluminium and fibreglass to re-purposed everyday household items such as paintbrushes, Lego and toy cars.
Having created a range of world-renowned design products such as The Ball Chair, Finn Stone has taken his love of diverse materials and eccentric creations into the realm of sculpture art. Stone recreates popular masterpieces in this unique style imagining some of history’s most important paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Andy Warhol, Picasso and Vincent van Gogh in a brand new light.
London-born Stone attributes his flamboyant and eccentric style to his eclectic background and his exuberant energy. His style embraces the most diverse creative disciplines. Stone’s artwork can involve materials ranging from aluminium and fibreglass to re-purposed everyday household items such as paintbrushes, Lego and toy cars. Somewhat of a sculptural harlequin, he creates work that is juxtapositioned to challenge the banal as he simultaneously tips his hat to his own dream world. Stone’s one-off sculptural pieces are a by-product of his lateral thinking and are often dripping in absurdity.
