Michael's edition is the first artist print to be released for Turner Contemporary Editions and produced in collaboration with Counter Editions, Margate. Turner Contemporary Editions will offer limited editions by leading contemporary artists, raising funds to support the gallerys charitable work. Enabling us to continue offering free access to art and culture, promote wellbeing, encourage debate, inspire new ways of thinking by offering creative learning to our communities.

Michael Armitage is known for his powerful and lyrical oil paintings on Lubugo, a traditional bark cloth from Uganda. He weaves narratives drawn from Western art history, historic and cultural events, personal memories and aspects of East African culture and folklore into his paintings.

This new limited edition print, Vision II is based on the painting Vision (2013), which was included in his exhibition 'Peace Coma' at Turner Contemporary in 2017, Armitage’s first show in a UK public gallery. Since then, Armitage has gone on to be considered one of the leading painters of his generation, with exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2019); Haus der Kunst, Munich (2020); The Royal Academy, London (2021) and Kunsthalle Basel (2022). And in 2020 he founded the Nairobi Contemporary Art Institute, a non-profit visual arts space in Kenya to promote art by practitioners in East Africa. 

Michael Armitage says: “I am thrilled to be the first artist to make a print for Turner Contemporary Editions, and to have worked with Counter Editions in their Margate print studio to create Vision II. Turner Contemporary supports artists at pivotal moments in their careers and works with thousands of children and young people each year through their learning programme. The sales from Turner Contemporary Editions will help to support this work with communities in Margate and across Kent in the years ahead.”
