Very occasionally in the art world, one is privileged to witness history in the making. Alexander Millar and his evolution as an artist over the past three years is one such occasion.
Millar, an entirely self-taught artist began his career more than twenty years ago, painting watercolours and taking inspiration from landscape artist Ashley Jackson. But it is arguably in the last three years that Alexander Millar has started to become one of the most significant artists of the contemporary art world.
Starting in 2010, Millar was invited to exhibit at the Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle; an exhibition which took Millar’s work to new heights. His skilful depiction of buildings, cranes, viaducts and docks which dominate the characters walking or cycling past. These elements of ‘real life’ were increasingly present in the scenes, and he expertly began to pull the story away from single figure or couples, the dads with kids and dogs; to create the big picture, the context.
Being hailed as the Lowry of the north-east by respected art critic Sue Steward was just the beginning for Millar. Following his revered ‘Working Man’ exhibition in Newcastle, Millar went on to exhibit a series of work devoted to the working men and women of Sheffield and its steel industry presenting this work at the Magna Trust, a museum on the site of Templeborough Steelworks.
Now painting towards another major museum show, this collection of London scenes marks a juncture in Millar’s work, as he transitions from ‘gadgie-man’ to an artist who is drawing comparisons to Lowry, Turner and Monet.
The stunning collection of London scenes are available as limited edition prints, signed and numbered by the artist in only 95 edition. If you would like to view the new collection click here to visit our website.

Carl Payne’s extraordinary figurative sculpture is based on traditional tenets but has a bold contemporary style which has won him collectors from all over the world.
He creates his stunning bronze sculpture in the UK with an amazing mastery of technique. His complex and hugely rewarding process demands patience, accuracy, commitment and artistry.
Carl is inspired by music, the female form and a host of artistic figures including Rodin, Alfred Gilbert and Charles Sargant Jagger, as well as many of the Pre-Raphaelites.
Born in Staffordshire in 1969 Carl studied Figurative Sculpture and received his first public sculpture commission in 2000. Since then the list of his completed commissioned work is extensive, including King George and Queen Mary for the ballroom of Cunard’s Queen Mary 2 cruise ship, ‘Ride a Cock Horse to Banbury Cross’ which was unveiled by Princess Anne at Banbury, and George Best, Bobby Moore and Pele for private collectors.
His personal favourite is the Sir Stanley Matthews statue at the Britannia stadium: Technically challenging, dynamic, historical and unique, it was voted the best sporting statue in Europe.
