New York Art Sales 2015

The year has started with a flourish indeed, with further New York art sales.

In what is becoming something of a most welcome trend I am delighted to be starting a new year once again with sales of my paintings in January.

Last year in very early January my first sold painting went to a WestCountry collector.   This was quickly followed by some work which went to New York and in 2013, also in January, I began the year with several New York art sales.

These latest four paintings to be sold were delivered to my most remarkable patron on Friday, and I am rather humbled that they take my New York art sales to close on 20 in the past five years.

They are all paintings which featured in my 2014 UK exhibition at The Gallery, Liverpool, ‘Punk – The Transatlantic Paintings’ and, interestingly, three of the four works are of bands who hail from the USA.  Two of them being New York bands, Ramones and The Dictators, and the inimitable Iggy Pop who was born and raised in Michigan.

The fourth painting is of  ‘Saints And Sinners’ by Scotland’s Johnny & The Self Abusers.    A band  who upon the release of this, their debut single,  had already gone on to form the excellent Simple Minds.
