Royal portrait painter Christian Furr and legendary rock and roll photographer Gered Mankowitz collaborate in a merging of minds and methods.

Using source images by Gered Mankowitz, who has captured the likes of The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, and singer Marianne Faithfull, the painter Christian Furr – who was the youngest artist ever, at age 28, to be commissioned to paint a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II – applies his unique painting style to make colours express an image’s nuances.

The current exhibition showcases the results of their collaborative work process, and each artwork is made in a limited editions of 5 examples. Every piece in each edition is individually hand-finished (to create, in effect, a completely unique piece), and each is supplied with a certificate of authenticity signed by Gered Mankowitz and Christian Furr. More work by the pair is viewable by appointment in Richmond Atelier. Please call to arrange
