The chap surrounded by paintings is called Bryn McDonald, a former Chatterley Whitfield miner, who is now a self-taught artist selling his oil paintings in Newcastle market. He has sold over 120 original paintings in the last 12 months, and I admire his work and how he connects with his public. In preparing for this french themed exhibition I thought Bryn had the appearance of a Parisian street artist selling infront of Notre Dame or the Montmatre.
