About Laz Emporium

The shop is closed right now till Saturday May 2022 when we reopen with Ewen Spencer's exhibition While You Were Sleeping.

Laz Emporium is very much a reflection of myself - goods from the shattered brain of Steve Lazarides.

We work alongside artists to smuggle more pictures into your home using ingenious methods… Right now we work with Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett, famed portrait artist Jonathan Yeo, the effortlessly contemporary Charming Baker, bona fide NY graffiti legend Stash, and street artist meets high performance military equipment designer War Boutique.

An emporium is ‘a store carrying many different kinds of merchandise’ – an eclectic and intriguing range of stock.

My collection is the product of my bipolar mind, always leaping from one area of fascination to another.

 

These are on sale next to objets d’anarchy from my own archive.

So ‘emporium’ made for a more fitting description than ‘gallery’ (been there, done that) or something trendy, which I could never countenance, like ‘marketplace’.

All our pieces are hand-made from sustainable materials created or sourced in the UK.

Nearly all are printed and assembled in the new Laz Studio out in the Wild West Country.

We work with local expert craftsmen like Steve 'the Wood' here.

Laz Emporium is a family business.

My mum and dad run the warehouse. Many of my old crew are on board, either up in the crow’s nest plotting a path ahead or below decks rowing for their lives.

And it feels like I’ve finally settled on a project that encompasses all my interests. Something that’s doesn’t just involve art, but also photography, design, and publishing and anything else that floats my boat.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the best things in life are un-categorisable – I’ll be picking up weird and wonderful esoteric clutter on this journey to sell here as well. Moreover, I’ll make new work with creatives of this world who can’t be pigeonholed.

But whatever it is, it’ll always have a subcultural element to its character.

It all certainly beats selling art in tents.
