Got a question about National Portrait Gallery?

  • ian meyer – “I entered the summer exhibition at the royal academy once, and felt the same thing. When I went to pick up my painting I saw everything else I realised how "normal" my painting was. They are looking for things that stand out when they hang them on the wall. If your painting is technically good, but otherwise pretty normal, then forget it. They will not give it a second look. What you need to paint is something that is different to everything else. The technique isn't the most important thing. You need to have an obvious style that is unique to you. I like to think of it as being the same as the x-factor. If all you are is a Decent singer, then you've got no chance. But if you chuck in a weird haircut and a geeky attitude that makes you stand out, then your odds go up remarkably.”
