British Artist to The Stars and Applauded by GQ Meets Luxury News Online

Teddy M is a British artist described by GQ in 2016 as the “Artist to Watch”.

His collections include works inspired by the female form, fashion, love and Italian automobiles.  Teddy M paints and designs with an iPad producing large-scale reverse perspex mounts and also with acrylics, spray paints and paint markers.

Introduced to Teddy M through fellow Ferrari owner ‘Dr13ven’ I am delighted to present this exceptional artist, who not only produces contemporary and popular artwork to the stars around the globe but is also a really cool guy!

Teddy M’s artwork is bright, bold and colourful and naturally appealing – who wouldn’t want one of his artworks on their wall? Or even on their favourite guitar. Well as it turns out, some of the most well known stars of our time as well as private collectors and best of all, Teddy has an online shop – check out the link at the bottom of this feature.

Teddy M’s client base is a diverse mix of new and established art collectors, investors and international celebrities, many of whom have discovered his work on Instagram and in GQ magazine rather than in art galleries. Teddy M’s work hangs proudly in a private collection beside original works by Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat and can be seen publicly in the largest official Ferrari showroom in Europe.

While creative from childhood, Teddy M graduated with a BSc unrelated to art or design and intially pursued a professional career in Mayfair, London.  5 years later, hungry to explore his creativity he designed a fragrance brand selected by Coldplay for their dressing rooms on the X&Y world tour. The brand was an official supplier to the BRIT Awards and retailed in Selfridges, London and Oasis stores nationwide in the UK.

 

A few years later, an unexpected event led Teddy M to put brush to canvas for the first time since childhood and six months later, in 2012, an art dealer in Belgravia, London offered his work for sale.

 

In 2013, the British national press reported Monaco royalty’s attempt to ban Teddy M’s digital media artwork of Charlotte Casiraghi and described him as a “Rising British Artist”.  He also held his first solo show, “Auto Italia” at the largest official Ferrari showroom in Europe.
