Teddy M (b.1974) is an emerging British contemporary artist.  His work is energising and urban with an immediate welcome engaging thoughts of healthy desire and contentment, a positive disconnect from the reality of what is often a less colourful, honest and safe world.

 

Teddy M has been described as "The Artist to Watch" by GQ magazine (2016) and has created art guitars for international icon Ed Sheeran, collaborated with British Royalty and in February 2017 created the Range Rover Autobiography Art Car.

 

The artist has shown his work with galleries in London, New York and LA and exhibited independently at venues including Masterpiece London, official Ferrari dealer Dick Lovett Sporting and the Chelsea Harbour Hotel, London.

 

In 2016, FIAT heir and notable art collector Lapo Elkann commissioned Teddy M to create two paintings to join his extensive private collection alongside original works by contemporary art icons including Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Ed Ruscha.

 

Teddy M has appeared in British and International press and featured in GQ, People and Tatler magazines.  His work is owned by an eclectic client base including international icons from the worlds of music, publishing, movies, sport and fashion.

 

Early on in his career, Teddy M had a brief moment of controversy when Monaco royalty instructed lawyers seeking to ban his artwork featuring the likeness of Charlotte Casiraghi however, he received the personal approval of rock legend Eric Clapton to create a digital media portrait to benefit The Crossroads Centre.

 

The artist works with acrylics, paint markers and spray paints on a variety of media and has also created paintings on an iPad output as large scale works on aluminium and as reverse perspex mounts.
