Jack Vettriano was born in Scotland in 1951, after leaving school at the age of sixteen he became a mining engineer in the local coalfields. He was given a gift for his twenty-first birthday of a set of watercolour paints, this inspiring him to teach himself to paint. The local art gallery, The Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery was renowned for its collection of 19th and 20th century Scottish paintings, Vettriano found this very inspirational.

It took Vettriano fourteen years before he felt confident enough to publically show his work. In 1989 the Royal Scottish Academy accepted two pieces of work from him, selling both on the first day. The following year he entered another three paintings that the Summer Exhibition at London’s Royal Academy were just as enthusiastic about.

Over the past nine years interest in Vettriano’s work has grown tremendously. In Edinburgh, London, Hong Kong and Johannesburg he has had sell out exhibitions. For the first time, in 1999, Vettriano showed his work in New York, displaying twenty paintings at The International 20th Century arts Fair at The Armory. All twenty paintings were sold out within an hour on the opening night, with fifty collectors flying in from the UK.

In March 2000, a half hour documentary about Vettriano was produced by BBC Scotland for their Arts Series EX-S: it was initially aired in Scotland, but is likely to be aired nationally later this year.

Vettriano’s prints and paintings are now distributed worldwide and have a vast following of fans. Two of his images are this year the two best selling art posters in Britain. Over 500,000 posters of Vettriano’s paintings have, to date, been sold worldwide.

Jack Vettriano paintings can be found in corporate, public and private collections worldwide.
