Aileen’s greatest ambition is to master the fine art of introduction. Whether introducing a TV audience to the latest in arts & culture, the right luxury product to the appropriate deluxe branding, or introducing astute philanthropists to worthwhile charitable causes, Aileen easily adapts her marketing and communications skills to the task in hand. Her experience spans the fields of PR & marketing for deluxe hotels, broadcast journalism, and the administration of a charitable trust dedicated to arts & culture and community development in Ireland and the UK. Although currently London based, Aileen hopes to split her time and share the Helium ‘point de vue’ with Ireland and France.
ScrabbleScrabble the beagle has a powerful nose for art and he himself is an avid fan of the deconstruction technique twinned with meticulous collage. It was scrabble who first had the idea of teaming Damien Hirst with Banksy long before the artists themselves did. Taking prints by both artists he will careful dissect the paper which is reborn into one uber image spread over the full interior of an urban loft. His ‘floor-art’ masterpieces are incredibly rare but are met with overwhelming emotional responses and are so unique that insurance houses find it hard to place a value on them.
We are currently on the look-out for original works by Banksy to expand our existing stock.
Please contact us at Helium if you have an original Banksy which you would like to sell or if you would like advice on authentication or value.
