Niall Campbell Strachan (b.1986) is a Scottish visual artist that paints imagined beings with intuitive brush strokes, summoning playful creatures from his subconscious for the audience to make sense of. The facial expressions of his unnameable animals, while simple, portray the animals as complex, emotional beings, stumbling through a world much like their human counterparts. In these painterly gestures, Strachan manages to create dreamy characters with subtle narratives, interacting with others inside and outside of the frame. Niall makes with cardboard, spray paint, acrylics, and wood, harnessing the naivety of a boy's adventurous wonder to include the audience in the fantasy. Niall Strachan has exhibited in Shanghai, Madrid, and Paris with group shows in Miami and Brussels. Following a sold out art fair in Madrid and the US, Niall's tribally ornate abstraction has made him one of 2022's most sought after artists.

Framing: In order to ensure the most economical shipping and environmental cost, we send our art to the customer unframed. However, for the best presentation of the bus panels we suggest it is framed upon arrival. We advise that the piece floats in a the middle of a black frame without glass, hung at eye level. 

Popcorn bidding: If a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional five minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.

VAT: Standard rate item. VAT @ 20% added to bid (hammer) price if the winning bidder is based in the UK or Europe. A buyer's invoice will show the hammer price (bid price) of the lots bought and VAT will be charged separately.
