"Max Wildman certainly knows his Wallis. His deceptively simple paintings are indeed true aphorisms of the original works of this unique St Ives artist. Once again, Wallis is affordable!" - JOHN MALTBY
ABOUT ALFRED WALLIS
Alfred was a Cornish fisherman and artist who lived from 1855 to 1942. His paintings are an excellent example of naïve art; perspective is ignored and an object's scale is often based on its relative importance in the scene.
Having little money, Wallis improvised with materials, mostly painting on cardboard ripped from packing boxes and using a limited palette of paint bought from ship chandlers.
ABOUT MAX WILDMAN
Max Wildman first drifted into painting in 2005, at around the same time as early retirement began to beckon. Now, most of his time is taken up with painting. He was born on Merseyside, but from an early age spent much time on the move, living in London’s East End, rural Yorkshire and the West Country.
His Alfred Wallis homage paintings are highly praised and much sought after.
