Very occasionally in the art world, one is priveleged to witness history in the making, Alexander Millar and his evolution as an artist over the past three years is one such occasion.

Millar, an entirely self taught artist began his career more than twenty years ago, painting watercolours and taking inspiration from landscape artist Ashley Jackson. But it is arguably in the last three years that Alexander Millar has started to become one of the most significant artists of the contemporary art world.

Starting in 2010, Millar was invited to exhibit at The Great North Museum: Hancock in Newcastle; and exhibition that took Millar's work to new heights. His skillful depiction of buildings, cranes, viaducts and docks which dominate the characters walking or cycling past. These elements of "real life" were increasingly present in the scenes, and he expertly began to pull the story away from single figures or couples, the dads with kids and dogs; to create the big picture, the context.

Being hailed as the Lowry of the North-East by respected art critic Sue Steward was just the beginning for Alexander Millar. Following his revered "Working Man" exhibition in Newcastle, Millar went on to exhibit a series of work at the Magna Trust, a museum on the site of Templeborough Steelworks.

Now painting towards another major museum show, thi scollection of London scenes marks a juncture in MIllar's work, as he transitions from "Gadgie Man" to an artist who is drawing comparisions to Lowry, Turner and Monet.

The three new limited edition giclee prints on canvas are available framed as illustrated

Alexander Millar - Time and Tide.

Founder of the Impressionist movement, Claude Monet painted many pictures o fthe River Thames in London - drawn by the reflected light that was diffused in the smog laden air of 19th century London. In this warm picture, Alexander Millar has drawn on Monet's work for inpspiration and produced this beautiful impressionist image of a very well known scene.
