Well-known British television celebrity Timmy Mallett was back in Broughty Ferry last week showing off his artistic side.
Timmy, who is perhaps better known for children’s show ‘Wacaday’ and more recently ‘I’m A Celebrity Get me Out Of Here’ was at Eduardo Alessandro’s Gallery on Friday night to open an exhibition of his work.
A talented artist, Timmy’s original paintings and limited editions are much sought after by collectors in the UK and beyond.
As part of his degree at Warwick University Timmy studied History of Art and it was here that he discovered his love of art.
He said: “I paint every day, inspiration is everywhere. You won’t be surprised to see that I adore colour!”
This latest collection from Timmy, who also exhibited at the gallery last year, has been inspired by sunshine and shadow, the changing seasons and the magic of the moment.
Sandro Paladini, proprietor of Eduardo Alessandro Studios said: “We are delighted to welcome Timmy to the gallery. He is a famously colourful character and we are looking forward to introducing him to collectors – it’s not every day you get to chat about artwork with a household name! Timmy will be personally dedicating his artwork at this event and I do hope our friends in the area will join us on what will be a very special evening.”
Lorraine Kelly, a long-standing friend of Timmy, was also at the opening night. She said: “His last exhibition was a huge success and gave everyone here the chance to enjoy seeing his paintings as well as having the opportunity to buy one to take home. He’s such a talented man and a real ray of sunshine as well as being a good friend.”
