The Brixton Pound (B£) is money that sticks to Brixton and designed to support local businesses to encourage trade and production. The Brixton Pound cafe was opened in July 2016 and is the first in South London where all food and drink is served on a pay-what-you-feel basis.
TIMOTHY SUTTON specialises in portrait work using traditional oil on canvas techniques to create stunningly realistic pictures. He believes the secret of a good painting is not to just capture the likeness, but also a sense of character, be it flesh or fur.
Portrait painting has once again established itself as an important record for our modern age. The photographic image has become an unsatisfying, disposable item, typified in glossy throw-away magazines or ‘never to be printed’ pictures on a digital cameras. People are now looking for a more permanent record and a commissioned portrait has proved to stand the test of time.
As well as solo and group shows, Timothy has exhibited at the Mall Galleries and the Dulwich Picture Gallery. www.timothysutton.com
