Two ideas clashing at the same time, one is the feel good factor of Star Wars and the other the misery depicted in Dismaland. In a surreal world ruined by wars the Banksy memorial to misery is in ruins but an artwork still outlasts it on the left with the new heroes of the future world R2D2 and 3po still going strong and will the feel good factor outlast the misery of Dismaland.

The original art is oils on board 24 x 24 ins framed and shipped (tracked) to your door by courier and packed in a custom made wooden case.

Quote from "British Artists"

The artist seems to have a unique talent that I envy, to paint people is not easy, to paint people ooze life is nigh on impossible and yet these people ooze life" ~ Quote from the editor of British Artists. Scottish figurative and landscape artist with work in collections in Australia, Hong Kong, Spain, Greece, USA, Ireland, Italy, America, Denmark, France, Spain, UK and Canada.

I am a self taught Scottish contemporary figurative and landscape painter that loves light.

My art is characterized by contrasting shadows and light with the signature figure in a red coat featuring in almost all of my works.

I love to work in oils and acrylics and the subject matter is always changing but I always focused on light and exaggerated shadows to create a mood in the work with serious influences from black and white films such as “Citizen Kane” and directors like Ridley Scott.

I have been working as a professional artist for some years and have never looked back since my first sale in a gallery.

I have exhibited in Malaga, Lorient, London, Birmingham, Manchester, Aberdeen, Glasgow, and art fairs across the country

I have also represented Scottish Art in Lorient at the largest Celtic nations event in the world.
