Over the last few years Jack Vettriano has risen to fame meteorically and we are so pleased to be given the opportunity to showcase his work here in the South West.
Jack is entirely self-taught, emerging from the unlikely background of the Scottish coalfields he has become Scotland's most successful and controversial contemporary artist, with prints of his work outselling those by Van Gogh, Dali and Monet and his originals acquired by celebrities around the world.
Vettriano describes his paintings as akin to pulp fiction novel covers of the 1950’s, with images that often have a mysterious narrative opening a gateway to an alluring, yet sinister world. Daylight scenes of heady optimism painted against backdrops of beaches and racetracks are counterbalanced by more disquieting canvas of complex night time liaisons in bars, clubs, bedrooms and ballrooms.
At Kaya Gallery we have a number of signed limited edition prints available for purchase alongside open editions and a range of cards.
