St Pauls Gallery is the World’s leading retailer in signed limited edition album cover fine art. Opened in 2002 St Pauls has steadily grown to what is now the largest collection of licensed album cover art in the World. With well over 100 signed prints on permanent show and sale, the gallery is a place not to be missed if music is your passion. Also on show are exclusive collections of signed limited edition musician portrait photographs and fine art prints. St Pauls also actively invests and trades in rare fine art prints and originals by world renowned artists including Andy Warhol, Picasso, Bridget Riley and Salvador Dali.
St Pauls’ range of album cover fine art from bands including Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen, David Bowie & The Beatles is on show in the various white wall gallery spaces, each print signed by the original artist who created the work all those years ago. Album cover artists include Sir Peter Blake (The Beatles, Ian Dury), Storm Thorgerson & Aubrey Powell of Hipgnosis (Pink Floyd, Genesis, Yes, 10cc), Karl Ferris (Jimi Hendrix, Donovan), Terry Pastor (David Bowie), and Jim Fitzpatrick (Thin Lizzy)
Every print is recreated using the finest printing methods including screen and giclee printing onto heavy stock fine art paper. Once printed each print is checked by the artist and then signed. Many of the prints are then presented to the relevant artiste/s to sign and musicians so far who have endorsed by hand signing the prints include David Bowie, Jimmy Page, Brian May, Mark Knopfler, Nick Mason and many more. As the print editions sell out, due to their exclusive and finite nature, the value and price of remaining prints increases so investment potential is a very real facet of collecting these important editions.
Rockface Portraits, fine art signed portraits of famous musicians produced in conjuction with the Nordoff Robbins music charity, are also exclusively on show and available from the gallery. Painted by world renowned portrait artist Melissa Mailer-Yates and with artistes such as Paul Weller, Nick Mason, Katie Meluah and Grace Jones having supported the charity through sitting for portraits, these low edition (20 prints World Wide) signed prints are not only desirable but promise to offer very real financial returns in the future.
