Originally a chocolate biscuit factory, Butler's Wharf was built between 1865-73 as a shipping wharf and warehouse complex, accommodating goods unloaded from ships using the port of London. It contained what was reputedly the largest tea warehouse in the world. During the 20th century, Butler's Wharf and other warehouses in the area fell into disuse.
From 1975–78, the artists' space at 2B Butler's Wharf was a key venue for early UK video art and performance art, used among others by Derek Jarman and the artists and dancers of X6 Dance Collective who published a magazine called New Dance for a number of years. Some of these people subsequently founded Chisenhale Studios and Chisenhale Dance Space, including Philip Jeck.
Since the 1980s, Butler's Wharf has been transformed from a derelict site into luxury flats, with restaurants and shops on the ground floor. D&D London owns several of the restaurants, which include Butler's Wharf Chop House, Le Pont de la Tour,Cantina del Ponte and Blue print cafe.
All prints are available in three difference formats: Luster on Supra Kodak paper, 2" Gallery Wrapped Canvas, & dye-infused high gloss aluminum.
All prints are produced on premium-quality Kodak Supra Endura paper. We chose this because it has an increased colour range for stronger, brighter, more vibrant colours, cleaner whites and bold, rich blacks.
Prints are produced on Kodak Endura silver-based paper, which is then laminated with a satin finish, stripped away from its paper base and, under high pressure, bonded to museum quality artist’s canvas.
High Gloss Metallic
These coated aluminum panels with a High Gloss white base provides the brilliance of photographic paper with the added impact only a metal substrate can provide. This option gives you vibrant vibrant colours, great detail, high resolution and durability without the need for frame or glass. This print is hard and scratch resistant, and can be cleaned with regular glass cleaner - but be sure to avoid placing it in direct sunlight.
Please note: Metal Prints are produced on aluminum that has a special coating applied. This coating can sometimes contain small surface imperfections such as minor 'craters' or 'bumps'. Images are placed in a way that does not affect the final image as much as possible.
