Morty & Bob’s Kensal Rise, the family run all-day restaurant, café and bar in Kensal Rise is working with Art School, an online gallery that champions emerging artists working with printmaking techniques. Together they have commissioned artist Ellie Edwards to create a series of limited-edition linocuts of dishes from its menu.
The six A4 works include the famous M&B’s Grilled Cheese, a Bloody Mary, a breakfast scene of Coffee and Eggs, Steak and Chips, Pickles and a Smoked Salmon Bagel. Each work has been made in an edition of 20 and will be sold exclusively at Kensal Rise and via www.artschool.co.uk for £55 each (or £300 for all six).
The collection is Morty & Bob’s first artistic collaboration, and to mark the occasion, the brand will be hosting a public event at Morty & Bob’s Kensal Rise on 18th May from 6 – 9pm. The event is free to attend following registration and will include a casual and relaxed private view with a drinks reception.

About Art School
Founded by Laine Kay-Lambert in 2021 from her home in London, Art School was born out of a desire to curate an online platform to showcase rising British talent in the printmaking field. The space was created to celebrate the rich history of printmaking and its varied range of techniques and shine a light on the Contemporary artists who are pushing the boundaries of these mediums. We are not about representing artists but championing them and their practices and work alongside them to commission artworks exclusively for Art School in limited editions.
About Ellie Edwards
London-based printmaker Ellie Edwards creates food and drink-inspired linocut prints from her kitchen. Inspired by her background in food journalism, her lino prints focus on pastries she has picked up from her local bakery, cocktails she had sipped, dishes she has eaten at her favourite restaurants and seasonal produce from local markets. Edwards loves how food brings people together and can provide such vivid, positive memories. Being able to capture that moment in print and make it permanent brings her much joy.
