|Plus One Gallery focuses on contemporary figurative, trompe l'oeil and hyperrealist oil and acrylic paintings. The gallery also exhibits contemporary decorative bronze sculpture, drawings and mix media works by the most renowned artists in the field of hyperrealism including but not limited to the acclaimed artists Ben Johnson and Pedro Campos, as well as New York based Cesar Santander and Ben Schonzeit. We are also proud to represent three winners of the prestigious BP Portrait Award; Craig Wylie, Andrew Tift and Philip Harris.
Plus One Gallery is dedicated to the development and promotion of British and
international contemporary hyperrealist art, having published three books on
the topic. April 2009 saw the launch of our book ‘Exactitude, Hyperrealist Art
Today’ published by Thames and Hudson and Plus One Publishing. Written by John Russell Taylor and edited by Plus One Gallery director Maggie Bollaert the book celebrates the variety of subject and perspective in photorealist art today. The previous two books focused on the hyperrealist art by architect-turned-artist Carl Laubin and British painter John Salt respectively.
Holding around six contemporary exhibitions each year in the main gallery we run an innovative and eclectic exhibition programme featuring hyperrealism art from all major themes in both traditional and modern variations: portrait/human, urban/landscape and still life – the result of which is a wide selection of motifs to suit the most discerning of art collectors.
Whether you are looking for a colourful vibrant culinary still life, a beach scene, the London skyline, a nude study or a perfect rendition of a vintage car or even that of a retro toy, you will find it with us, amongst our diverse range of contemporary hyperrealist art.
Representing over fifty leading realist painters and sculptors, the gallery exhibits established names from the foundation days of hyperrealism including John Salt and Ralph Goings as well as talented emerging artists of the modern generation such as Tom Martin.
Plus One Gallery opened in 2001 in Seymour Place in Marylebone. In 2005 the gallery moved to its present premises on Pimlico Road in the SW1 area of London. The founding owners and gallery directors are Maggie Bollaert (above) and Colin Pettit.
