As a child, Ivan Drago portrayed by Dolph Lundgren in the iconic movie Rocky 4, was my favourite bad guy! He was the guy I loved to hate.
Painting Dolph and presenting my artwork to him was a dream come true, as I hoped to capture the intensity and strength he undoubtedly portrays yet also the warmth and softer side of his personality through his eyes. I wanted to capture the real Dolph and not the character for what he's famously remembered."

Born in Treharris 1978 a mining village in South Wales, Craig James has been painting for as long as he can remember!
From his first commission aged just 14 to the present day where he dedicates his time to working in his art studio, painting for hospitality events, celebrity charity auctions and private commissions.
Craig does not know where his love of art came from, he was just naturally drawn to it at such a young age, so much so, that his dream as a child was to work for Disney as a cartoon animator or an art teacher.
What makes Craig’s work so unique is that he specialises in black and white paintings due to his colour blindness, however Craig has been known to produce breath taking pieces in colour also!
He takes great pride in knowing that many of his clients, including well known celebrities have more than one original piece in their collection, with his original artwork being sold all around the world.
Over the years Craig’s style has changed and evolved and continues to do so, producing the unique and elite pieces that you see today.
Choosing to build a life for himself and his family in the East Midlands, Craig dedicates his time to working in his art studio creating unique paintings for others to enjoy and own.
ART is is objective, its allows YOU to love what YOU choose.
With that in mind my aim is to produce work that “offers you something different”
Something exclusive and special to you.
All commissions are deeply personal creations that require a significant amount of emotion and collaboration with the client.
Composition, Lighting, Colour, Mood, Intensity, Message… these just a few of the elements that help me create the final piece of work.
I want you to be excited to show your friends, and if I can achieve that I am happy.
Finally for your assurance. I only use the finest quality and most robust materials allowing your ART to stay in your family for centuries.
Not everyone can afford an original piece. So with that in mind I knew I needed to find a way to create vibrant authentic and outstanding quality reproductions.
I am happy to say that the quality control in our limited edition pieces is second to none.
