Tiggy fell in love and started painting New York some 15 years ago. He arrived there at the turn of the new century and has been capturing the city's energy and vibrancy with maestro since then.
Positioning himself in the streets Tiggy has managed to reflect in his works the essence of New York, namely, the "busyness, the hustle and bustle, the people, the children with their mothers, the taxis, the cars". That and the omnipresent art scene which he has skillfully transposed onto his canvases with his brush and paints. This has earned him the Title of "Urban Primitive" by a famous NY Art Collector.
"It is quite a crazy place" says the London born artist who for many years stationed himself by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Met is where Tiggy found the inspiration for his latest series, which focuses on contemporary artists, the global art scene, and the lack of understanding it generates amongst a great many visitors of the museum.
"Seeing people coming out saying WTF was that? WTF did I just see?" is how the idea to create canvases that "take the piss and nicely attack" the contemporary art establishment came to Tiggy.
Tiggy does not want to be labelled a political artist, he prefers to think of himself as an artist who makes people laugh. "Most people will stop and look and give me the feeling of joy and fun, they'll like it, they will pass smiling, enjoying what they just saw".
And we can only agree with him, we no longer count the amount of people passing by our boutique and bursting out laughing at seeing Tiggy's work.
The new collection is now available on demand in our boutique.
