Funky Monkey’ by Brian Travers.
Archival pigment print – 3 of 10 – signed limited edition.
Brian Travers is best known as the saxophonist of the world’s most popular Reggae band, UB40.  What is less well known is that Brian met the other members of the band at Moseley School of Art in Birmingham.   The School, located in a deprived inner city area, was founded in 1900 and was the first purpose-built art school in the country. The school was part of the ‘arts and crafts’ movement that promoted  a broad general education combined with a focus on creativity and craftsmanship as vital in public sector education.  It was closed as a free public school in 1977.
The school is where Brian met Ali Campbell, Earl Falconer, and Jimmy Brown.  The school can also claim Christine McVie of Fleetwood Mac among its alumni.
Painting was Brian’s first love and his work has been exhibited in galleries worldwide.  His main interests lie in the abstract and ‘Funky Monkey’ is rare in that it is one of his few figurative works.  The print is signed by the artist and dated 2016.
