Good Karma Kills Bad. Always.
"Perhaps the passion and commitment with which I create leaves an indelible aura embedded in my work affording a heartbeat to something that is otherwise still." Teddy M
Teddy M's energetic and dominant works possess a somewhat 'retro' quality while maintaining a contemporary narrative on popular culture and society.
Themes including sexual attraction, personal well-being and popular culture are illustrated in a bold and playfully disruptive and pleasureable manner offering a hedonistic escapism from the reality of what is often a less colourful, honest and safe world.
In an age where ones 'Unique Selling Point' can be as important as the visual and emotional impact of their work, Teddy M has created art guitars played and commissioned by Ed Sheeran on both his X and Divide world tours, he is the only artist to collaborate with members of the British Royal family and earlier in 2017, Teddy M revealed the Range Rover Autobiography art car.
In 2016, GQ magazine described Teddy M as 'The Artist to Watch" and his work has attracted the attention of design icons and art collectors including Tommy Hilfiger, Lapo Elkann and Flavio Manzoni.
If an artist is allowed to be proud of his achievements, Teddy M is most pleased to see his original works in private collections along side original works by Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, KAWS, Paolo Scheggi and Agostino Bonalumi.
The artist was influenced from a young age by the work of David Hockney and is particularly drawn to contemporary American works from the 60's and 70's, Italian Futurism of the early 1900's and later the 1980's street art movement in New York.
To date, a number of global brands have offered Teddy M design projects including Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London and TAG Heuer. The artist's work has been shown in London, New York and LA.
Teddy M is currently self-represented and welcomes interest from international galleries.
Blues skies, warm sunshine, vibrant colours, fun and laughter, passion and desire.
I seek to capture all of these natural and human elements creating a commanding and dignified celebration an energetic and contented life, a healthy distraction from the less honest and safe world we find ourselves in today.
Boundaries do not exist in my work, where perhaps some may feel the spoken word would have to be a little more reserved, I am a very direct individual and my work speaks freely at all times. My work also arises from a sense of urgency and confidence, an image or idea will appear in my head and I am restless until it is delivered in physical form.
Music is vital in my creative process and I have an eclectic taste pumping through my studio.
The eyes of a child often reward with innocence and honesty, to which a child once paid my work the greatest compliment by saying,
"You Create Happy Art"
