Tracey Emin. Grayson Perry. Sarah Lucas. Bansky. Invader. Faile. Harland Miller. Shepard Fairey. Mr. Brainwash.

All of the big names in contemporary and street art are heading to Chiswick this September for two jam-packed auctions.

With hundreds of artworks up for grabs from Chiswick Auctions it’s difficult to narrow it down to a mere few, so though we’ve highlighted our favourite pieces here, we recommend you take a look at their entire catalogue to make sure you don’t miss anything.

This 2017 handmade cotton fabric and embroidery appliqué by Grayson Perry (b. 1960) is from an edition of 150 plus 10 artist prints. Its 97 x 148 cm frame is filled with bright colours, fun characters and vivid designs, including two ‘gay black cats’ and a faux-Union Jack in the upper left corner.

Perry is of course well-known for his astute observations of British culture, class and and society – themes which become more and more apparent the longer you let your gaze linger on this audacious quilt.

The design of this 2010 Bansky (b. 1974) work, Choose Your Weapon (Warm ‘Queue Jumper’ Grey), made its first appearance in London Southwark District. The dog, with its all-white silhouette, pays homage to Keith Haring’s iconic Barking Dog, and the dog walker, with his hooded sweatshirt and bandana disguise, represents the disgruntled youth so commonly featured in British pop culture.

The screenprint is signed and numbered from an edition of 58 in pencil, and it measures 87 x 86.5 cm (including frame).

Another street artist, Invader’s (b. 1969) piece, Rubik Ohh...Alright… (2011), immediately evokes the work of tongue-in-cheek pop artists, such as Roy Lichtenstein.

For those that aren’t well acquainted with the work of the French artist, Invader is the pseudonym for an urban artist whose work is modelled on the somewhat crude pixellations of 1970s and ‘80s 8-bit video games. His name is taken from the 1978 arcade game, Space Invaders, and a lot of his work, as with this piece, is composed on square ceramic tiles.

Sarah Lucas’ (b. 1962) NUD sculptures are well known across the world and are held in top collections, such as in the Tate. Each sculpture within this series is made from tan nylon tights stuffed and twisted into an ambiguous, biomorphic form, which sits atop a plinth. The tube shapes are suggestive of fleshy body parts, evoking limbs and orifices.

This black-and-white polymer gravure print on Somerset paper is signed and numbered from an edition of 100.

The two art auctions from Chiswick, Contemporary and Urban, will take place on 21 September.
