The New Andy Warhol

A private view of the works of Lincoln Townley at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea

 

Described as “the new Andy Warhol” by the actor Michael Caine, acclaimed artist Lincoln Townley’s works were displayed at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea on Wednesday 19th October. To welcome the exhibition, a party was held to mark the occasion and it was a rare thing – a truly genuine happening.

A select group of readers of The Steeple Times were kindly invited by Laurenzo Mefsut of Trace ART and amongst them were fashion gurus Rocky Mazzilli and his mother Louise Michielsens, art curator Chrissy Cant, financiers Michael Clark and James Moon and newly engaged PR gurus Stuart Leach and Marianne van Pelt.

 

Others present included Townley’s actress wife, Denise Welch, as well as the Britain’s Got Talent contestant Nick Celino, the former WAG Lizzie Cundy and the socialite and event organiser Philip Sallon.

 

Of the works, Mr Mefsut commented:

 

“Townley’s style in oil, acrylic, and gilding is bold and modern, inspired by the psychedelia and grotesquerie of Francis Bacon and the street life of Soho. His satirical canvases send up the misplaced seriousness with which modern life sees itself, exposing the dark underbelly of finance, sex, and the concept of luxury itself”.

 

Works offered are priced from £50,000 for limited edition prints and quickly rise to £250,000 for original paintings.
