We Never Close

Another memoir narrative from Mike. After working as a young illustrator in Soho, Mike uses original photos taken from the area to create a composition capturing the evening, traveling through time. Ham Yard, The Lyric Theatre and the Windmill on Great Windmill Street are the backdrop to a young woman passing some of Mike’s most vivid character memories. A painting that captures the original 24 hour café society.

About Our Prints

We use the finest Hahnemühle Art Canvas for our canvas prints.

The Art Canvas Smooth is a natural white, poly-cotton canvas and guarantees archival standards.

With Mike’s images using a vivid, rich and bright colour palette the Hahnemühle Art Canvas Smooth meets the highest industry standards regarding density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness.

Printing Process

We use UV-stable inks to minimise print fading. Additionally, each canvas print we provide is coated with a UV and water-resistant top coat. This coating seals the ink and canvas, offering protection not only against sun damage and moisture but also against airborne contaminants.

All of our prints are carried out using UV stable pigment inks. These inks typically last much longer and are more resistant to fading than non-UV stable inks. This helps to preserve the quality of your art for decades to come.
