Our Picture of the Week, sent in by a reader who refers their name be withheld, is of the bow tie wearing, party loving sort David Pun. It was taken at a party held by the jewellery brand Chavín at the Embassy of Peru in London’s Sloane Street.

In the image, Pun is pictured enjoying a canapé and taking a gift bag. So enthusiastic was he to get to the loot that he didn’t even manage to take off his coat and scarf. Life’s hard when you’ve got so many parties to attend – invited or not.

    1. I am not amused to see him taking the gift bag as I did not get one when I left.. there were all gone.. as I guess people sneaking in like him uninvited grabbed them..

    2. Great idea from Angus…I propose a top trump style award scheme for the most sightings, I for one will see him this Thursday for sure – do I win?

    3. yes and they interfere, interrupt and obfuscate genuine work of bona fide journalists – so its not a victimless ‘crime’ either . The organisers lose out with PR etc

    4. This is a fantastic picture and should serve as a deterrent to them all. Matthew Steeples is right to out these gate crashing freeloaders. And they are gatecrashers. People like David Pun and the Julian Assange lookalike (along with his champagne swilling companion) are never invited, and don’t even attempt to feign an RSVP or registration for events, as their responses would never pass muster. Instead, they just turn up, mid event, and either give the name / take the name badge of a genuine guest, or convince the terrified clipboard intern that they in fact should be on the list as a director of Harvey Nichols or Condé Nast whichever company Pun and his posse are purportedly (mis)representing themselves as being from at the time. This is why photographic evidence is so important as is allows organisers and hosts to spot the intruders and have them ejected as they quite frequently are. Good job, Sir, on exposing these fraudsters.

    5. Both Doble and Pun have been seen regularly at London wine trade events. Pun has been kicked out of quite a few of these recently; the more people who recognise him and his friend Denis Doble the better. It’s a lot of work, effort and money to hire a venue, organise logistics and provide sample bottles for trade customers to taste. The last thing we need is freeloaders turning up looking for a drink when we’re trying to do business.

      Thanks very much to Matthew Steeples for exposing these people and publicising their photos.

    6. When I first moved to London I was a struggling artist and I accepted an invitation from Pun to a wine tasting at the Ritz, as he told me he wanted to talk and help promote my carrier. The tasting was for professionals of the industry, I never felt so embarrassed as I clearly had nothing to do there! We obviously never spoke about my practice! Another guy groomed me more severely and I never reported him until now, saying he was a prince etc. He knew the chairman at Sotheby’s and that was enough to impress me. Turned into endless “dates” with this disgusting character, who was basically using me as a free escort. And called me crazy when I called him out in it. His name was Riaz Babar. Another once tried his luck too, Michael Murphy. They’re all friends and prey on young naive girls aspiring artists in openings etc. Beware.
