We are delighted to be able to offer Sean Durkin individual commissions once again to our customers. After stocking his work for many years, we are very pleased to announce that we will be one of Sean’s chosen galleries, since leaving his agent this Autumn. We are looking forward to continue to show Sean’s work in the gallery; plus assisting our customer’s with their requirements.
The industrial theme which is synonymous to his artwork; the cop and robber which has become his well known trademark. The well loved story of the Man from Marsh Road. The trademark is a little reminder for Sean of his father’s past activities. (See below) Furthermore it played a part in his own inspiration to become a painter himself.
Nevertheless, John Durkin, his father infamously stole a painting by LS Lowry, little did he think he would become an acclaimed artist himself. His father stole a painting depicting St Hilda’s Church from a public art gallery. Subsequently, he was arrested by police after the theft and what’s more had a ransom letter with three demands –
1. The gallery should have a better alarm system,
2. The gallery should be opened on Sundays,
3. The Mayor should raffle his underpants for charity!
It is certainly exciting to be dealing directly with Sean and to stock one of our favourites for the gallery and for our customer’s alike.
