"Very talented" TOMMY HILFIGER
Teddy M is a contemporary artist. His work is unashamedly direct with a fearless use of colour and bold, naive symbolism expressing female forms, the Teddy M Heart, skulls, stars, lightning bolts and other striking iconography.
The artist has attracted many globally recognised art collectors including FIAT heir Lapo Elkann, fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger, Ferrari's head of design Flavio Manzoni and British GQ editor Dylan Jones OBE. Luxury brands have also sought Teddy M for commercial commissions including Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London, TAG Heuer and an official Ferrari dealership. In 2018, one of the world's most recognised luxury brands acquired an original artwork for their private collection.
In 2016, GQ magazine described Teddy M as "The Artist to Watch," months later he became the first contemporary artist to create a painting with members of the British Royal family.
Ed Sheeran chose Teddy M's 'Green T' Stratocaster for his X world tour and later commissioned another as a collaboration with New York street art pioneer John Matos aka Crash. The 'Crash x Teddy M' Stratocaster has featured extensively on the 2017/2018 Divide world tour.
A number of significant private collections feature works by Teddy M alongside original paintings by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Ed Ruscha, Roy Lichtenstein, Agostino Bonalumi, Paolo Scheggi and many other masters of contemporary and modern art.
To date, Teddy M has appeared in international media including GQ, Tatler, People, News.com Australia and BBC Radio. His work has been shown at Masterpiece London, and at purposely eclectic venues including the Chelsea Harbour Hotel London and the largest official Ferrari showroom in Europe. Further afield, the artist's work has appeared in New York City and West Hollywood.
Teddy M is currently in the Cotswolds, UK but, would rather be painting high up on the Italian coast overlooking the Mediterranean.
