More about Jack Vettriano And His Art
The popularity of Britain’s self-taught Jack Vettriano earned him the nickname “The People’s Painter.” Originally from a Scottish town where he planned to work as an engineer, Vettriano fell in love with art. In creating his art, he listens to music that makes him feel uncomfortable to create a mood that fuels his edgy, mysterious creations. Vettriano’s sales broke a record at Sotheby’s, and he has outsold Dali, Van Gogh and Monet.
