"In a dream it's real, and in life it's a dream." - Mackenzie Thorpe
Mackenzie Thorpe is one of the biggest selling and most collectable British artists of the last 30 years. His work is deeply emotive, rooted in authenticity and always carries a message of hope.
His journey from a working class upbringing in Middlesborough, undiagnosed dyslexic shunned by his parents, to International art phenomenon has given Thorpe an inspirational drive to spread joy, positivity and love through his art.
Working almost exclusively in pastel, his iconic style tells stories of families, industrial Britain and working class identities. Father and son relationships feature as important collections and the universal language of football is at the heart of a lot of Thorpe's iconic series.
Notable collectors of his work are Actor Tom Hardy, Author JK Rowling and Queen Elizabeth II to name a few. Mackenzie has also undertaken many prestigious commissions for clients ranging from the Andre Agassi Foundation, the Elton John Aids Foundation, Princess Anne and William Hague.
