  1. Hi Reza

    I haven’t read the other comments – just wanted to say that I found your artwork powerful, sensitive, very thought provoking – I am a lover of all music and that red – just gorgeous – and I fell straight into the hollows. Thank you. As an artist you have more than done your job!!

  4. Hi,

    There is a picture by Mateus (I don’t think it had a name) in a cafe called Grub in Clerkenwell Green I am interested to learn more about.



    • Hi Daniel,
      Thank you for your comment and interest in Mateus’s art – appreciated. She is a very talented artist and came over from Columbia as a refugee a number of years ago. If you like, we can arrange for her to meet you at the cafe at a mutually convenient date/time for her to explain her work in person, if you wish. We like to encourage the ‘human connection’ where possible. But no pressure whatsoever. If you like, you can reply to us at Many thanks again, Best, Michael

  5. Christopher Kowlowski’s artwork is powerful and moving and I would not change a thing about it. Its raw, honest and it moves me.

    • Hi Bridget,
      Thank you so much for taking the time to write to us – much appreciated. We shall relay your message to Chris! Many thanks again … Best, Michael

  6. I really like the work of Mary Vallerly and would be interested in buying it.

    • Hi Jo,
      Thank you for getting in touch – much appreciated. Mary is a talented artist and her work is loved my many! Would you mind if we pass your email to her and her supporting charity?
      Many thanks again for the interest … Best, Michael

  7. We are a social enterprise called Policy in Practice working with St Mungos, Crisis, Riverside and others on supporting low income families and homelessness prevention. We help local authorities and housing associations to develop strategies to make sure their resources go to those who most need them. We’d love to decorate our new offices with some of this work! Is it possible to purchase it? If you could relay details of the artists/their families so that we can contact some of them that would be fantastic.

    Many thanks!
