|We love Blue!!|
This weekend we are sharing some fun facts about the colour Blue alongside sharing with you some inspirational and delicious “blue creations” from the stock room.
Blue is often described as a favourite colour by many and it is the most preferred colour for men! Whilst often seen as a non-threatening colour, it is the colour of both the sky and the sea it may be connected to calmness and serenity. On the other hand, It may also evoke sadness as seen in Picasso’s Blue Period.
Individuals have been found to be more productive in “Blue Rooms”, so this could be the perfect time to decorate your workspace in blue and interestingly it is the least appetising colour, blue will rarely occur naturally in food! It has been mooted that serving food on a blue plate can even tempt you to eat less!!
Whatever your thoughts are about this cool colour, we hope that you will love the works below…

Now that all three editions of Art Basel have been canceled in 2020—in Hong Kong, Basel, and Miami Beach—organisers are looking ahead to 2021 and trying to balance the optimism of a vaccine with the uncertainty of what lies ahead.
Organisers of the international circuit of fairs announced today that dates for the next edition of Art Basel Hong Kong, typically held in March, will now take place in May, due to “the ongoing impact of the global pandemic including travel restrictions,” according to a statement. The new dates will be May 21—23, with preview days slated for May 19—20. It will still be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The decision was taken “in close consultation with gallerists, collectors, partners, and external experts, with the goal of ensuring that the fair will be attended by the largest possible number of collectors, curators, and arts professionals from Art Basel’s global network, while protecting the health and safety of everyone concerned,” according to the statement.

Christie’s is offering outer-space enthusiasts a chance to own a piece of history with its new online sale “Voyage to Another World,” which features more than 2,000 photographs from the collection of collector Victor Martin-Malburet. The 700 lots on offer document NASA’s golden age, dating from the late 1940s to the 1970s, and the landmark accomplishments of the American space program.
Martin-Malburet first caught the space bug as a teenager, when he accompanied his father, a collector and painting specialist, to an astronautical sale. The otherworldly images of lunar topography and astronauts floating in the milky way enchanted the boy and, years later, he went on to amass a trove of photos for himself.
Among the works on offer is the sole photograph of Neil Armstrong on the moon, which NASA itself didn’t even realize existed, for an estimated £30,000–50,000 ($37,800–63,000). There are also official photographs of the astronauts, of President Kennedy watching the space launch, a snapshot of Laika the dog, who the USSR sent as the first animal to orbit the Earth in 1957, and a selfie by Buzz Aldrin.
