A new collaboration between royal artist Christian Furr and Godfather of Rock Photography Gered Mankowitz featuring signed, original prints such as ‘The Rolling Stones’, ‘Jimi Hendrix and ‘Kate Bush’, bringing Furr’s distinct painting style to some of Gered’s most famous and iconic photographs. The title 45RPM (45 Revolutions per minute) comes from Gered’s background in music – recording the icons of music through his iconic photographs of musicians who made their careers with single sales (’45’s) and the revolutionary power of Art.
Christian Furr has previously exhibited at 45 Park Lane in the summer of 2013 with the late Chris Bracey. His work can also be found in the third floor suite and bedrooms at 45 Park Lane.

This Place by Bonnie & Clyde
Bonnie and Clyde is an artist and printmaker who uses photography, paint, collage and print to construct graphic mixed media pieces and limited edition prints. Inspired by everything from signage and iconography to music, film and the lives of other people, Bonnie and Clyde responds emotionally to socio-political occurrences intertwined with personal circumstances. A keen photographer, she enjoys travelling and capturing images that explore her interests in street photography, architecture, the sea and psycho-geography, which are then appropriated into her artwork. The artist is from Bradford in West Yorkshire, birthplace of David Hockney whose work she draws inspiration from.
In association with Ackerman Studios and Liberty Gallery, works exhibited in The Lobby and BAR 45 at 45 Park Lane

Mappa Mundi by Ewan David Eason
Mappa Mundi – A term deriving from the Medieval Latin words Mappa, meaning chart, and Mundi – of the world. Eason’s Mappa Mundi prints portray a contemporary visualisation of today’s cities in juxtaposition to their medieval namesake. They depict a bird’s eye view of some of the most iconic topographical surfaces on our planet over shimmering precious metals drawing on the egalitarian nature of the cities. The context of these works represents a snapshot of our ever-changing landscape that could potentially be completely re-written in as little as a decade.
This series of Eason’s work has been well received in a number of prestigious international institutions including the Barbican, Christies and The Royal Academy of Arts.
In association with Ackerman Studios, works exhibited in The Lobby at 45 Park Lane. All artworks are available for sale, POA.

Timepiece by Jill Berelowitz
Highly acclaimed sculptor Berelowitz has prepared a stunning sculpture for the H.R. Owen showroom called Timepiece, which depicts the sleek female form in a hourglass style—a shape associated with women for centuries.
Made from white bronze, the stunning sculpture adds to Berelowitz’s presence in the capital and puts her on the map at Mayfair’s ultimate icon – which is celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2017.
Art consultancy Ackerman Studios arranged Berelowitz’s work heading to Jack Barclay Bentley as part of their push to connect talented artists with public points of interest.
Last month, the artist unveiled a contemporary outdoor sculpture at Park Lane opposite the Dorchester Hotel called Moving Forward; plus, further north, she created the Mind’s Eye Tree at Stratford-upon- Avon to mark 400 years since William Shakespeare’s death.
