Hypergallery is a print publisher and e-commerce gallery founded in 2005 by local father-daughter team Rob and Emily Smeaton. Last year they moved into their own ground-floor space in Broadgates, now lined wall to wall with plan-chests full of prints, from which their run their e-commerce business Hypergallery.com.
Hypergallery’s prints are high quality, striking and valuable art editions of classic album covers, each personally signed by the artist and/or the musicians. Printed at larger than life size, these works make an impressive statement and give music lovers the chance to display their allegiances in a manner more sophisticated than the blue-tac and posters of their teens. The collection is a mix of little gems and mega stars of design and music: from 1950s jazz covers, through to the heydays of Pink Floyd, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin, right up to the present day.
Pop in and browse their extensive collection of affordable prints, ranging from £120 to £12,000. Prints may also be viewed by appointment at any time. Rob and Emily are always happy to welcome locals into their Broadgates space.
They are hosting unique openings of their Henley print room for anyone who would like to take a peek at their extensive collection of prints over a glass of prosecco as part of the Special Spring Event.
