This new collection from Doug represents everything that is best in the world of contemporary art. Uplifting and accessible, it is also technically accomplished and aesthetically rewarding, a combination that has won this extraordinary artist many awards and many thousands of admirers. Doug’s fresh, immediate style sits comfortably within the genre of so called “naïve art”, yet there is something about his work that sets it apart from that of his contemporaries. That special spark is difficult to pinpoint – the element of uniqueness that has made him one of the UK’s best-loved artists. The love, joy, affection, humour or sympathy reaches out to us from each individual piece in a way that is almost impossible to resist, and has made him one of the most successful artists on the contemporary scene.
