Head Gardener -Metal Wall Sign (3 sizes), British Countryside Memorabilia
The 'Head Gardner', taking a well earned snooze with his trusted terrier! Created by artist Kevin Walsh, this vintage styled advertising sign is for Newcastle Brown Ale (there's a glass tucked just under his chair!) and has been given a distressed effect for an authentic vibe. An ideal gift for gardeners and those that love retro advertising signs. A great decorator's piece for the summerhouse, shed, office/ study, man-cave or bar!
Born in Yorkshire in 1950, he studied illustration at Wakefield College of Art. Kevin developed an early reputation for accurate technical paintings, historical detail combined with an ability to capture the warmth and atmosphere of his subjects, these are the hallmarks of this remarkably accomplished artist. He travels many miles to research his paintings and spends countless hours sketching before committing the final composition to canvas.
