‘FAKE’ John Myatt – An Exhibition of Works

jmgc25-wedding-flowers-in-the-style-of-marc-chagall-f An exhibition of signed limited editions and original paintings from master forger John Myatt.

He was involved in the biggest art con in the UK and is now one of the country’s fastest selling artists. From talented chart-topping songwriter and art teacher, John Myatt went to Brixton prison for being involved in “the biggest art fraud of the 20th century” – Now his incredible life is to be the subject of a Hollywood movie and his artistic talent is already the focus of several major TV series.Starry Night (Vincent van Gogh) by John Myatt

This is the extraordinary life of artist John Myatt and his even more extraordinary ability to paint in the style of any of history’s greatest artists.
“In prison they called me Picasso”
John Myatt

Today Myatt paints on the right side of the law and his ‘Legitimate Fakes’ command thousands of pounds and are collected by fans across the globe.

The five images are an excellent example of the great talent which Jack has taught himself over the many years since being bought a set of watercolours for his 21st birthday. His carrer in art began in 1989 when Vettriano submitted two canvases for the Royal Scottish Academy annual show where both paintings sold on the first day and Vettriano was approached by several galleries following.

The controversial artist has since broken records and seen his most famous original works sold for hundreds of thousands with The Singing Butler being sold in auction for £744,500 which was actually rejected in 1992 by the Royal Academy summer exhibition.

Stuart McAlpine Miller – Editions of 9 – An Exclusive Release of New Limited Edition Prints

moved by a force from behindFollowing his sell out exhibition of new work, Stuart McAlpine Miller released a stunning reproduction release of 7 limited edition prints. Limited to editions of only 9, these stunning low edition prints are a perfect representation of the original paintings he is now well renowned for.

The exhibition ‘Altered Images’ featured a large number of paintings and limited edition works in various sizes and subject but all containing the main factor of fading one idea to the next – Art critic Estelle Lovatt described it as “The merger of today’s science of technology with the prowess She Creates Terrorof ‘Live’ cartoon action.”

Only a year previously the telegraph was reporting a ‘Little-Known artist chosen as artist-in-residence at The Savoy’, an artist who struggled for 20 years to sell his work. Few art critics had heard of McAlpine Miller a couple of years ago until this break with the Savoy and new deal with leading publisher Washington Green. This extraordinary exposure set his new found style off to a profound start with followings across the world. During his residency he produced eight paintings inspired by celebrities who stayed at the famous London Hotel. Frank Sinatra and Marilyn Munroe were among the chosen featured celebrities.Table Top Deciples of Pose

Stuart McAlpine Miler sold his first work for £24 and until 2011 the highest price paid for one of his paintings was £7,000. In 2012/13 this rose to an incredible £25,000 with one piece at the Altered Images exhibition being sold for £180,000. Estelle Lovatt, art critic for BBC Radio 2’s Art Show has tipped Miller as an artist whose work could be worth a significant amount in years to come, if £180,000 isn’t a significant amount already then where could the artist go, being only 50 years of age and still practically a half life to go it will certainly be an interesting one to watch.Alice Through The Looking Glass

With deals like super silk tees for Lulu & Co and more importantly artist on the ground for Virgin Galactic space flight, New Mexico Desert 2015, Stuart McAlpine Miller will be setting the bar at a new level in years to come.

Stuart McAlpine Miller Biography and News

20120909-022241.jpgStuart McAlpine Miller is the hottest artist this year tipped to be one of the greats and an artist whose work could be worth a significant amount in years to come. His unique style and ideas which he has worked to develop over the last 20 years will be the focus of his current work. 2012 presents McAlpine Miller with an exciting residency at The Savoy Hotel. He will be creating a series of 8 paintings to feature in their iconic foyer. This is alongside other High Profile commissions in both London and Hong Kong. His work continues to develop.

Shortlisted for the Provost Award at Kelvingrove Art Galleries and Museums in 1996 his work has continued to attract the attention of galleries and collectors across the world.

Four low numbered signed limited edition prints are released in both paper and canvas editions.

Artists Statement

“This new series of works celebrates the culmination of ideas based upon the last 20 years. 20120909-024108.jpgThese paintings concentrate and focus on the fading of one idea into another with distorted images and abstracted thoughts. Based on the notion that we live in a throw away world each painting both suggests and questions the importance of certain celebrated things. Celebrity, Fame, Money and Greed feature as important issues for each of us. These are depicted as both fading memories and future hopes. 20120909-024554.jpgThe comic imagery signifies the unimportance of these things and helps to suggest that they have been manufactured for a temporary audience. Looking more closely the paintings illustrate a feeling of shallow existence. Surrounded by a myriad of colour, shapes and abstractions our lives are exactly the opposite. The ‘LIVING FOR THE MOMENT’ society, which actively encourages human singularism, seems almost unsustainable. Perhaps a return to
truer values is the way forward. Certainly with current consumerism and appetite for fame and success, societies will neither progress nor benefit. Take a look…now take a closer look.” McAlpine Miller

Having worked to develop his unique style McAlpine Miller is now concentrating his attentions on an exciting new series of work as premiered at Memories & Futures, Grosvenor Street, Mayfair in 2010.

Mallett’s Palette – An Exhibition of Work from the TV Personality Timmy Mallett

Timmy Mallett

We are delighted to announce a forth coming exhibition of original and limited edition artwork by Timmy Mallett. Timmy will be opening the exhibition on the 23rd of March with a preview evening from 6:30pm – 9pm with the exhibition continuing until the 8th of April 2012.

Born October 1955 in Marple, Cheshire and has a flair for art after being encouraged to draw and paint as a child. Timmy loves painting and reaches for his Mallett’s Palette at the drop of a brush. He works in acrylics and oils as well as watercolour. Much of his inspiration comes from the UK and trips all across the world.

Timmy’s striking visual style was an instant hit early in his career. He achieved cult status on BBC Radio Oxford and Manchester’s Piccadilly Radio and later on TV-am. He is most known for his loud shirts, colourful glasses and the giant pink foam mallett, Mallett’s Mallet and his little one Pinky Punky. Timmy Mallett ArtNot only is he a great TV and Radio personality and artist but a very successful musician. A member of the band Bombalurina, selling over a million copies of his record single "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini". The song entered the charts at number 23 and rose to 13 the next week and finally to number 1 on the 19th August 1990 where it remained for 3 weeks.

It’s not surprising Timmy Mallett decided to pick up a paint brush considering how colourful a personality he is. Timmy studied History of Art as part of his degree at Warwick University and his paintings can be bought from prestigious galleries across the country. In recent years he has enjoyed a keen artistic friendship and interaction with Rolf Harris. Rolf says “He is an enthusiastic and exciting artist…I’m knocked out by his work.”

Timmy Mallett - Still Life Artwork Timmy’s artwork will be available to buy on the evening and throughout the exhibition. Early viewing is recommended to avoid disappointment.

The exhibition will commence with a champagne preview evening on the 23rd of March 6pm – 9:30pm. If you would like to attend please RSVP to the following details.
