The UK’s most popular living artist: Doug Hyde visits Northampton Art Gallery 29 March 2019
On Friday 29 March 6.30-8.30pm Doug Hyde, dubbed ‘the UK’s most popular living artist’ by the BBC’s art correspondent will be visiting The Rose Gallery (within Bell Showroom) in Kingsthorpe, Northampton.
The event is free to attend and anyone interested in Doug’s art and in meeting the man himself, are very warmly invited to attend.
The multi award-winning star of the art world will be in The Rose Gallery celebrating the launch of an uplifting new series of original paintings and collectable editions.
This celebrated artist holds a unique position in the international art world. His heart-warming figurative images and engaging sculptures have captivated a generation of art lovers and won him an impressive range of awards, media coverage and celebrity collectors. As his reputation has grown, his original work has become increasingly sought after, and his status as one of the UK’s most collectable artists has been undeniable for over a decade.
Doug’s wonderfully warm personality and fund of anecdotes about the inspiration behind his work have won him huge popularity in the collector’s community, and he is always delighted to pose for photographs or to personalise artwork for his many admirers. His latest collection is stylish, engaging, and brimming with personality, and features a delightful cast of characters, including both familiar faces and some new friends
Gallery Owner, Deborah Davey commented: “Doug’s fresh, immediate style sits comfortably within the genre of so called “naïve art”, yet there is something about his work that sets it apart from that of his contemporaries. That special spark is difficult to pinpoint but impossible to resist! I hope our friends in the area will all be coming along to meet him and to enjoy this unique occasion.”
