Alexander Millar takes USA by storm

Recently our very own Alexander Millar was priviledged to attend 'Brit Week', a month-long celebration in Los Angeles of the best of British art and film. Alex was the country's only artist chosen to represent our art scene at this prestigious festival. A starstruck Alex was seen to rub shoulders with celebs including Nigel Lythgoe of Pop Idol fame and Lost's Naveen Andrews.

Alex said: “It was an honour to be chosen to represent Great Britain’s artists at Britweek. My Newcastle Gadgie paintings have come to represent the ‘everyman’ transcending all boundaries, including age, country and class." (cited 'Whatsonne')

Alex donated one of his oils to charity; Malaria No More whilst over at Brit Week which sold for a whopping $10,000.

Stay tuned for more of Alex's American Adventure....
