Artmarket in The Pipe and Glass

Michelle of the Artmarket gallery was pleased to work with James and Kate in the supply and installation of an exciting new art collection. Michelle said ‘we selected the pieces that would create interest and a talking point as you enter the Private Dining area. Renowned international artist Louis Sidoli created this series of portraits using vintage mug-shots of the "Most Wanted" iconic figures from contemporary culture, including gangsters, rock legends and Hollywood film stars. 

The original snaps were usually taken with instamatic or Polaroid cameras by unknown cops or clerks who handled the booking photograph at the time of arrest. Many of the original photos are very poor quality, but this gives the portraits a raw and authentic feel. Unlike some mug-shots where the subjects look dishevelled, the subjects of these images look cool, despite the fact they were taken quickly, without a team of lighting, make-up artists and photographers behind them. 

The subjects I have chosen are either my personal favourites or simply because they are great images. Each image has a story behind it. But the real appeal of these images is that "Everybody loves a bad boy".
