  • 3. Paul Karslake Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts Self-confessed ‘modern surrealist’, award-winning artist and brother-in-law of Ronnie Wood, Paul Karslake can never be said to conform to the preconception of an artist struggling for inspiration and full of self-doubt, but instead brims with inspiration and enthusiasm. His studio is a realm of colourful works of art from many disciplines, which are indicative of the scope of talent, this one-man exudes. In 1990 Paul had the honour of being elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. From modern surrealism to photo-realism, Paul prides himself on being able to work in any style and any medium. Environmental issues, iconic heroes and human suffering are subjects which often feature in his art. Still life, animals and portraits are frequently interpreted with his own humour. Inspired by famous personalities whose imagery, persona or music has survived, often against the odds, his collection captures the first modern fashion icon of Audrey Hepburn, the dark fascination of the Kray Twins, the enigmatic stare of David’s Eye and the eternal survivor Keith Richards. Paul’s original painting of Keith Richards commissioned by Keith’s wife in 1998, was seen by Johnny Depp at Keith’s home and quoted as the inspiration behind his Pirates of the Caribbean’s character, Captain Jack Sparrow.

  • 5. Steve Kaufman Former Assistant to Andy Warhol Former assistant to renowned Pop Artist Andy Warhol, Steve Kaufman...aka SAK...is considered one of the most important and talked-about Pop artists or our time. He had his first one-man show at the age of 8, received a scholarship to The Parson’s School of Design at age 14, and by age 16, participated in his first group show at the Whitney Museum in New York. Kaufman’s first one-man show was at a bank in the Bronx. The paintings were donated to the Jewish Holocaust Museum of Art in Brooklyn. In 1972, Kaufman was chosen along with nine other students from NYC to participate in a cultural exchange between Japan and the U.S., and was soon awarded a scholarship at Parson’s School of Design for fine art and design. Kaufman later enrolled in the School of Visual Arts in New York and soon met Andy Warhol. Kaufman became Warhol’s assistant at The Factory - Warhol’s famed fine art publishing studio - Warhol was to have a profound influence over the artist’s later work. The impact of celebrity on contemporary culture intrigues Kaufman, thus famed faces of art, music and film are often the subject of his artwork. Kaufman seeks to discover society’s common denominators in his artwork - the elements and individuals who generate an immediate response from the viewer. Kaufman is an artistic journalist commenting on history, both past and present. His dynamic style often combines images of the world’s icons with visual tapestries woven out of landmarks or other related references to their celebrity.
