Tracey Emin unveiling Mother in Oslo

Unveiled in June 2022, the nine-metre-high bronze sculpture overlooking the Inger Munch’s Pier in Oslo is an ode to Emin's mother.

The work is the largest sculpture produced by the AB Fine Art Foundry in London and weighs 18.2 tonnes. The welding process involved crafting 142 pieces of bronze into five sections over 8,000 hours.

Opening at Hang-Up HQ just over a month ago, the private view came to life as the culmination of over ten years of admiring and collecting Shrigley's work.

Banksy in Ukraine

In November, the infamous British graffiti-artist Banksy confirmed the creation of seven murals in Ukraine, spanning several locations, from Kyiv to Irpin, and Borodyanka.

Found in some of the places hardest hit by Russian airstrikes and fighting in the first few weeks of conflict, these new murals are Banksy’s first public works in over a year.
