Selling Charles Saatchi

In 2014 Saatchi was pictured grabbing Nigella Lawson by the throat. Photos appeared across the press.

I ‘reproduced’ the incident as a small oil painting and uploaded it to my page on saatchiart.com putting it up for sale at $30,000, Saatchi commission would have been 7%.

Within a month the press found out & The Mail on Sunday called.

My work was then splashed all over the Sundays up and down the country. And abroad via online.

Saatchi was asked to comment which he did allowing the art to remain on his site but obviously not amused. Interesting to see how many papers got the story wrong.

Other versions of the incident were painted on chopping boards as Nigella is a cook.
