‘We Occupy’ was founded in 2003 by Darren Firth under the name WIWP, and has since cultivated its own place within the art/design scene, earning great acclaim from artists, collectors and the creative press. 13 years on, with 150+ commissions, 6 international exhibitions and 1 book under it’s belt, it’s focus and international appeal has never been stronger.
What started off as a humble badge design site has now evolved into a global platform, actively pushing artist collaboration through various publications and exhibitions, becoming a great source for original art, high quality limited edition prints, original pieces and other related wares.
Working outside the traditional gallery format means that ‘We Occupy’ remains flexible as a concept, not confined to a dedicated gallery space or a favoured roster of artists; this inherent freedom allows us to approach each brief individually and create continually fresh, challenging and ambitious projects for a global audience. We are involved in the production process from start to finish and build personal relationships with the artists we work with.
Our ongoing focus is to continually commission and collaborate with some of the the worlds leading creatives; Hand picking both recognised and emerging talent to create exhibitions and products that transcend a definitive style or genre.

“A constantly invigorating shot of original inspiration; served up within an impeccably designed website, brimming with incredible artwork for your walls, your eyes and your soul.”
“Two Faced thus, is not simply a collection of snapshots, or images to be downloaded and subsequently discarded, but an art project that celebrates the notion of cultural exchange as well as the talents of some of the most in-demand image makers of our time.”
“I’ve been a keen follower of We Occupy since I learnt of Darren’s outstanding eye for curation; It has often introduced me to the work of designers and artists who would have never been on my radar. I’m excited for the future of We Occupy and it’s unsurprisingly stunning new website."
“As meteoric rises go We Occupy’s ascent of the design/art community has been truly stellar.“
“Two Faced provided a brilliant insight of modern portraiture by today's most current image makers.”
“For Darren to have pulled off this project is a massive achievement in itself, but to have done it with such style and finesse only goes to show just how good people should be - an inspiration."

Each print is wrapped in acid free tissue and packed within a specially designed tube that is appropriate to the print size and medium.
Our collection includes various one-off pieces, so we cannot guarantee availability of all our products. During busy periods we may sell out of certain products. If we cannot fulfil your order, we will notify you and refund you within 48 hours or, where feasible, offer an alternative.
Unfortunately not. We also advise that you wait until you have received your order before purchasing a frame, so that you can ensure it will fit correctly.
Remove your print from the tube with clean hands and avoid excessive handling. Don’t hang the print where it will be exposed to direct sunlight, sources of direct heat or damp. If you plan to store your prints for any length of time, you should ideally remove them from their tubes and store flat.
The majority of our prints are limited editions, and where possible they are signed and numbered by the artist. You’ll find information about the size, print making technique, edition and signature status in the accompanying description, so please double check before making your purchase.
Occasionally we publish work as an ‘open’ edition meaning that particular run of prints is unlimited.
We produce high-quality, limited and open editions, using a combination of modern and traditional printing techniques, including Giclee, Screenprints and Risographs.
Print sizes and materials vary, so please check individual products for specific information and bear in mind that there may be a slight variation between the colours depicted on your screen and the actual colours of the final print.
