Our love of Sid Dickens and his amazing Memory Blocks will come as no surprise to those who frequent Attico. We are massive fans and the release of a new collection is always met with much excitement. His newest project – The Harmony Collection – becomes available next month and as you can imagine we simply cannot wait!
Whilst we are already convinced of their brilliance, we appreciate that many people haven’t even heard of Memory Blocks (something we’re doing our very best to rectify!) so here’s a brief explanation for the uninitiated. Sid Dickens is a Canadian artist who has been creating collectable wall plaques called Memory Blocks since 1994. Each Memory Block features an image that represents a certain theme with a short inscription on the back offering a poetic explanation.
We obviously adore them however we are certainly not alone in that feeling. Memory Blocks are in high demand – famous collectors include Elton John, Liv Tyler, Domenico Dolce, Stefano Gabbana & Phil Collins – with many limited edition and retired tiles proving difficult to get your hands on.
At Attico we are so privileged to be one of only three official stockists of Sid Dickens Memory Blocks in the UK. We have been offering Memory Blocks in-store and online for three years and throughout that time they have developed a strong following amongst our customer base in the South of England. It’s truly lovely to see so many people within the local community start their own collection.
We love hearing about the different ways in which our customers choose to display theirs. Each Memory Block is 6×8 inches which allows them to be utilised in so many different, inventive ways. They are small enough to fit where other pieces of art may not and definitely look fantastic on their own. However, if you have multiple tiles they can be combined to create a truly beautiful focal point on any wall.
Whilst a popular purchase for those looking to add to their existing collection, Memory Blocks also make for lovely, thoughtful gifts. The themes and imagery expressed throughout the entire range offers a wide variety of options, presenting an opportunity to find the perfect piece to celebrate a specific occasion or commemorate your relationship with that special someone.
