Turner Barnes Gallery artists, The Connor Brothers, now take pride of place in Mary Portas’ London home. Portas bought the large artwork, “I Tried to Drown My Sorrows,” for a record price at an auction in aid of Stonewall UK.
Mary Portas is an English retail and brand guru, best known for her television shows such as “Mary, Queen of Shops,” and her fabulous sense of style. Drapers, the fashion industry journal, named her the sixth most influential person in fashion. Portas likes to spend her money on “art, wine, theatre and chocolate.”
Stonewall is a charity which fights for “acceptance without exception” for the LGBT community, in the UK and overseas.
Of her new artwork, Mary Portas said: “So happy to have “drowned my sorrows” by the #connorbrothers installed at the house yesterday. Picked it up @stonewalluk equality dinner and what a stroke of fortune it is to meet such clever wonderful guys. Making art and making lives better. Thank you James, Mike and Felix. @ConnorBrothers ???”
Another happy owner of a work by these artists that people just can’t seem to get enough of at the moment! You can see more of The Connor Brothers’ work here.
