About

Using True Brit London nail varnish, neon and lacquering techniques, SYRETT creates otherworldly abstract landscapes. A culmination of years of experience in the art and fashion industries. This style of work is the first of its kind, combining something cosmetic to create artwork.

Since beginning the work, SYRETT has since been appointed True Brit Brand Ambassador and will be showing a brand new, never seen before body of original artworks, together with prints from his Magazine collection.

 SYRETT will be showing a brand new, never seen before body of original artworks, together with prints from his Magazine collection.

Out of a fascination and love for the high fashion and Haute Couture industry, SYRETT began to note the similarities and the differences to the art world. Exploring the basic ideas behind art and brand, he examined why this idea of brand which the fashion industry repeatedly emphasises, yet the art world has not. Through this exploration SYRETT has looked at the relationship between the buyer and the art work.

Taking his lead from beauty and accessory brands, as well as fashion advertising. Syrett looks at the what is luxury and what is defined as beauty. Utilising high end textures and techniques of the fashion industry, he uses these elements to create exquisite artworks with hints of exotic animal skins, rarely occurring nature materials such real gold and pearls together with glossy finishes and hardware more akin to handbags. Working in several processes, mixing traditional craftsmanship with modern industrial techniques. Syrett is developing a highly polished art process, creating twice yearly collections with ever changing styles.

SYRETT’s latest collection of works is called Magazine and each piece is named after a publications that SYRETT reads. This collection is created using True Brit London, nail varnish as his medium.
