About the Edition

Translating personal experience into broader political statements, Pruitt's work is eclectic and ironic, often striving to achieve a spectacle while retaining a sense of social, cultural, or artistic critique. Perhaps best known for his Panda paintings, he creates large-scale canvases featuring pandas rendered in black-and-white glitter. Describing his own work as populist, Pruitt has said that his pieces are “basically blown-up versions of dining table craft projects.” He continues, “I’ve really enjoyed letting the world know that not everything is so mystified or so regulated to expertise—that you can make something really beautiful with a little ingenuity and some supplies from Michael’s.” Spanning the disciplines of painting, sculpture, photography, and performance, Pruitt's practice often bridges the gap between art and life, and has been met with both critical and commercial success.

ONE HUNDRED YEARS is a fundraising set of fine art prints that celebrates 100 years of Save the Children. A third of the profits from the sale of this print will be donated to Save the Children. The Save the Children Fund is a charity registered in England and Wales (213890) and Scotland (SC039570).

Work began on the 100 Years project in 2018 when we were asked by Greg Nugent (of Inc London) if we could get involved in help raise funds for, and awareness of, the Save the Children’s centenary celebrations. We had worked with Greg before to make the London 2012 official prints.

Together with Sir Nicholas Serota and Tracey Emin we invited 10 international artists to make a print which reflected broadly on the theme of childhood. As always, it’s a fascinating and exciting process developing a series of prints and seeing how different artists respond to the brief.

There has also been the added pleasure of producing the majority of the prints in our new print studio in Margate which has allowed us to give extra time and attention to creating them. The outcome of this is that we have been able to produce a truly exceptional portfolio of work.

We are proud to be involved with Save the Children. We will be donating 1/3 of the profits from sale of the prints to the charity which provide vital support for the incredibly important work that they carry our with vulnerable children around the world.
