Andrew Tift Wins Most The Most Prestigious Portrait Competition in the World

The BP Portrait Award is the most prestigious portrait competition in the world, promoting the very best in contemporary portrait painting. With a first prize of £25,000 the exhibition has proved the launch pad for the careers of a number of successful portrait artists.

Andrew Tift's winning portrait is a triptych of Lucian Freud's first wife, Kitty Garman, whom Freud painted many times. She used to live just outside Andrew's home town of Walsall, whose New Art Gallery houses her family's works of art, the Garman Ryan Collection. Andrew had been working on portraits of Kitty for a small show at the Gallery and this triptych is part of that series. Its style was inspired by John Freeman's 1960s Face To Face TV interviews.

You can read more about Andrew and the BP Portrait Prize here:

We offered Andrew Tift's portrait service for a year before he won the prize which follows on from our success with Dean Marsh who we sold more works for between 2000 - 2003 than any other gallery and who won the BP award in 2005.

Chris Parks and Oscar Winning Father Make Visuals for Hollywood Blockbuster

Chris Parks and his three times Oscar winning father Peter Parks were commissioned by director Darren Aronofsky to produce their special brand of organic fluid effects for the movie 'The Fountain' starring Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz. In order to make his vision of space timeless, Aronofsky steered clear of traditional computer graphics and instead shot with Chris and Peter over a period of 8 weeks to produce something that was unique and would not age.

You can see the trailer for the movie here:
