Buy art for Christmas and help Postgrad Art students.

Max Heinlein ‘Diamond See’ 
Max Heinlein ‘Diamond See’  Digital Print  @max_heinlein  “The work, generated by an artificial-intelligence algorithm, is named Diamond Sea. It shows a robot gazing at horizon. How does artificial intelligence see its own subjects? How do humans want the AI to see its own subject? The work is inspired by Anthony Gormley’s ANOTHER PLACE.” 

Buy art for Christmas and help Postgrad Art students – You deserve art in your life and we are committed to making it accessible. The joy of living with art should be something we can all experience.

Welcome to MERCH, where you can buy affordable work – online and in-person – by final year postgraduate students from across Central Saint Martin‘s Art programme. Whether it’s unique works or A3 limited edition prints at £50, bring art to life and support emerging artists this November.  

Nora Gem, ‘Moments’ 
Nora Gem, ‘Moments’  Archival giclee print @nora.gem  “In larger cities the number of people living alone is growing. This drawing represents the small actions that can provide strength and hope in during our daily hurdles. There is a tendency of isolation growing amongst people in today’s digital age. The couple on this drawing represents the need for small moments spent with loved ones in order to reduce stress during our everyday struggles.”

Iga Koncka, ‘You Know It’  Risograph 
Iga Koncka, ‘You Know It’  Risograph @igakoncka  “The collage can be seen as a lucky charm.

The image itself is a handmade collage transferred into 4-layered risograph.

Joseph Ijoyemi ‘We Go Carry Am’ 
Joseph Ijoyemi ‘We Go Carry Am’ Digital print  @mrj_artclub “”We go carry am” means ‘we have the means to carry’ in pidgin language. The essence of this work is to create new positive outlook of the black experience. To reimagine the new black experience as superpowers and royals.”
