Louis Turpin, Contemporary British Artist

I am a British artist producing contemporary figurative paintings. My subjects include landscape, gardens and portraiture. My work has been shown at The Royal Academy, The National Portrait Gallery and The Royal Society of Portrait Painters. As a rule, I have one solo show a year, and my paintings appear in several group exhibitions. I have paintings in many public and private collections.

I undertake a number of commissioned paintings each year and am happy to take enquiries.
