Beach is delighted to present an exhibition of new prints by James Jarvis.


‘Fifty Two Spheres' was a project by Jarvis that took place throughout 2011. Each week he created a print that depicted one of his characters coming to terms with the conundrums faced by an artist in his day-to-day life. All 52 works are on display at Beach London. Each is part of an edition of 7, with ready-framed A/Ps priced at just £40. Born in London in 1970 and raised on a diet of Richard Scarry, Herge, Judge Dredd and Albert Camus, Jarvis studied illustration at the University of Brighton and the RCA. Since then he has gone on to establish himself as a graphic artist of international repute. In 1998 Jarvis designed the iconic toy figure ‘Martin', unwittingly helping start the ‘designer' toy phenomenon. In 2003 Jarvis, together with Russell Waterman and Sofia Prantera, established a company, AMOS, to independently promote Jarvis' designs. To date Amos has released nearly 100 character toys, including King Ken and the mysterious and existential YOD. In 2006 Amos published the comic book adventure story Vortigern's Machine and the Great Sage of Wisdom, co-written by Waterman. In 2007 Amos published a collection, ‘James Jarvis Selected Drawings'. In 2009 Jarvis directed his first film, ‘Onwards', in collaboration with Richard Kenworthy.
