Sean Durkin

When his father infamously stole a painting by LS Lowry, little did Sean Durkin think he would become an acclaimed artist himself.

In 1972, John Durkin stole a painting depicting St Hilda's Church and old Town Hall from a public art gallery. When he was arrested by police after the theft, he had a ransom letter with three demands. The first demand was that the gallery should have a better alarm system fitted, secondly the gallery should to be opened on Sundays, thirdly, the Mayor should raffle his underpants for charity!

Sean holds regular exhibits in his native North East and has been the subject of numerous BBC TV, Radio and Newspaper articles. He has also been proud to donate paintings and raise thousands of pounds in support of local and national charities.

His growing band of collectors include national companies and well known personalities.

Each picture has an array of whimsical characters including a matchstick illustration of a policeman and a robber in each work as a cheeky nod to his father's exploits.
