It is with great sadness that I have to announce that on 9 June a very special man and a brilliant artist passed away. My Gallery has been associated with Ken Paine PS SPF for well over 30 years. During that time, apart from working together, Ken became a very good friend and a positive influence in my Art World career. One of the highlights of our time together was my organising and presenting his 80th Birthday Party at the Arts Club in Dover Street, London. Many dignitaries attended this memorable occasion.
Ken’s soulful portraits will live on, and his sharp whit and forthright thinking will never be forgotten. Be at rest my dear friend. Our deepest sympathy goes out to his partner and artist Penelope Lee.
There are two books available covering the life and works of Ken Paine: “Ken Paine – His Life and Work” by Michael Simonow and “Nowhere to Hide” by Penelope Lee 2014
Stay safe and stay well!!!
Best wishes Linda
