Room with a View


At times like these we could all do with a garden and if not, a room with a view and if good fortune hasn’t provided one, maybe with our mind’s eye we can imagine something else altogether to make a drawing of, or a painting from.

Toby Mott / New Work Available

Artist, collector and founder of Cultural Traffic, Toby Mott is something of an art world maverick. Kicked out of various schools for various misdemeanours this rather bumptious public school boy had to settle at Pimlico Comprehensive a school that he would later describe as being the making of him. With a disinclination for conventional work he found himself living in a squat with a Dickensian like crowd of punks, queens, drug addicts and petty criminals amongst whom he found friendship with Marilyn, Princess Julia and Boy George.
