Mallett’s Palette – An Exhibition of Work from the TV Personality 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. Not 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’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.
