Overview

Over the last few years Jack Vettriano has risen to fame meteorically. Emerging from the unlikely background of the Scottish coalfields, unknown and untutored, he has become Scotland's most successful and controversial contemporary artist. Appearing on posters and cards, mugs and umbrellas, prints of his work outsell van Gogh, Dali and Monet and his paintings have been acquired by celebrities around the world. Vettriano himself describes his paintings as akin to pulp fiction novel covers and railway posters of the 1950s. His images have an often mysterious narrative and are a gateway to an alluring yet sinister world. Daylight scenes of heady optimism, painted against backdrops of beaches and racetracks, are counterbalanced by more disquieting canvases of complex night-time liaisons in bars, clubs, bedrooms and ballrooms. Jack Vettriano publishes for the first time over thirty new images, exhibited in his 2004 exhibition, as well as some recently discovered works, plus the best of the paintings previously published in Lovers and Other Strangers and Fallen Angels, also published by Pavilion. Jack Vettriano is entirely self-taught. A Scotsman of Italian descent, he began his career as a mining engineer working down the Fife coalfields. His first solo exhibition in Edinburgh was a sell-out and since then he has had exhibitions in London, South Africa and Hong Kong. In March 2004 Melvyn Bragg's The South Bank Show broadcast a programme dedicated to Jack entitled Jack Vettriano: The People's Painter. Jack Vettriano is represented exclusively by Portland Gallery in London. He lives in both Fife and London
