MARTIN GROVER is an established painter and screen printer. His inspirations are simple: childhood recollections, minor street scenes, small news items, poetry, popular songs, advertising, lost or abandoned ephemera, old 45’s, sheds and bus stops. His style can range from straight ahead realism to pop art parody through to whimsical illustration; all produced with wry humour and an occasional hint of melancholy. www.martingrover.com

DAVID TAYLOR is a professional contemporary landscape artist specialising in mood and atmosphere rather than the figurative.
Working in oils, he manipulates the paint using bushes and palette knife, building up layers of paint and glazes that depict the dramatic weather conditions he loves to paint. His recent exhibitions have stretched as far afield as Singapore and Canada, as well as here in London. His paintings hang in private collections in Europe, Far East and the USA. www.davidtaylorcontemporaryartist.com
