Christmas gifts for art lovers

It’s safe to say Christmas 2020 will be rather different to the norm thanks to Covid-19. That’s why we’re all coming up with creative ways to make sure this year’s festive season is still magical and filled with memories.

And if you won’t be able to see as many of your family and friends as you usually would, you can still let them know they’re loved by treating them to an extra special present.

To help you out, we’ve come up with a few ideas for beautiful art gifts to suit a range of budgets. What’s more, they’re all available online from our Raul Speek Gallery store. So, make a cuppa, put your feet up and have a browse…

Eye-catching greeting card sets

Our greeting cards feature Raul Speek’s stunning artwork and are signed by the artist. They would be well received by anyone who loves art, and who still enjoys putting pen to paper when sending messages to their friends and family.

Each set of four is based on one of the following five themes: women, religious, abstract, landscape, and Che.

The cards are Giclee printed and handmade, and are produced using high-class photographic inks. Plus, they’re built to last, so you can frame them and give them as a gift in that way.

Price: £20 for a set of four cards.

Limited-edition art prints

A Raul Speek limited-edition art print would make an extra special Christmas gift for the art fan in your life. Our range of striking prints feature Raul’s artwork, and are signed and numbered by Raul.

Choose from statement pieces such as ‘Provider III’, ‘Winter in Pembrokeshire’ or ‘Guantanamo Che’.

The prints are available up to A2 in size, and are mounted before sending out, usually within four days of receipt of your order. We use acid-free archive paper, and the photographic inks are guaranteed to last 75 years.

Prices start from £110 for an A4 print.

Art books

Books always make personal, thoughtful gifts at any time of the year, especially Christmas. They’re ideal for stocking fillers or as ‘Secret Santa’ presents.

Child of the Revolution’, put together by Raul and his wife Heather, would be a joy to unwrap on Christmas Day. It would suit not only people who love art, but those who are fascinated by personal stories.

This colourful book contains the beginnings of Raul’s biography, followed by a more pictorial exploration of Raul’s journey over the first part of his life in Cuba and in Wales.

Price: £14.99 for ‘Child of the Revolution’ book

3D artworks

If you want something extra different, how about one of Raul’s fabulous 3D fish sculptures?

Raul started creating his fish about 12 years ago for an exhibition in South West Wales, where he now lives and works.

The fish are cut out from pieces of wood, and Raul designs each one to fit the grain and size of the wood. He then paints them with various colours. The sculptures are varnished and can be used either indoors or outdoors.

Prices start from £70.
