Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Felicity Gill

"It was a privilege and a glorified ego massage!"
Boris Johnson, Mayor of London, on being painted by Felicity Gill.
"It captures the man's quizzical expression exactly... she has done him proud."
Lucy Hodges, THE INDEPENDENT on Boris Johnson
``We're starting to see a lot of younger artists and they really are bringing in new, edgier work'' said Leiper``People like to see how other people perceive them. '' Highlighting the move toward less conventional portraits, Leiper said, is the Johnson piece, which portrays the mayor seated in a deck chair holding a coffee cup, an image she described as ``angelic.''
