Online Shopping: closed now, back soon

The safety of our visitors, friends and all who work with us at the RA is our highest priority. In line with the advice from Public Health England, the RA is closed temporarily; we have now taken the further decision to close our online shop in the short term, and to minimise non-essential activity.

We will be in touch once online shopping is available again, and are using the opportunity to improve the site and online experience we offer: we promise it will be better than ever! Meanwhile, if you have a query about an existing order, please contact us.

Whilst the front doors of the RA are closed, and for the time being the online shop, we will continue to offer creative inspiration to enjoy from home, and new ways of connecting. Visit us at Royal Academy of Arts, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

Sign up to receive RA emails and find out once the online shop is open.

Thank you for your continued support. We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the online shop and in person again soon.

Wishing you all the very best,
The Royal Academy of Arts Team

RA Edition Sebastian Bergne Sun Burst, 2020

This new RA Edition by Sebastian Bergne explores the single sheet of paper as an object more than just a surface. Both sides of the page have been explored and the boundaries pushed to the extreme; piercing and extending beyond the edge of the print. Working with the RA Schools, one side of this multi-faceted work has been screen printed with glowing, ombre colour. On the other, a series of digitally cut incisions pierce the surface of the paper to allow parts of the work to be folded forward to form a powerful multi-dimensional piece that references the Sun.
