Matt Franks - Commission a portrait
Matt Franks

Matt Franks has always felt portraiture to be an intriguing aspect of art. "Trying to capture a sense of someone's personality on paper is challenging and it is equally hard to draw someone's likeness, when even the slightest fault will mean that the picture may not be a true likeness", he says.

Matt works predominantly in 4b pencil on paper, although he can also produce pop art paintings in acrylic on canvas or use coloured pastels or charcoal. He most enjoys drawing pictures with lots of contrast and shadows.

He requests a series of photographs to work from, which clearly show your face close up with plenty of contrast and shadow. Images can then be emailed directly to him. If you do not have any suitable photographs, Matt can arrange to visit you and take some. Specific details will be discussed with you before undertaking the commission.

Matt's prices start at £430 for an A4 sized pencil on paper portrait and vary according to the commission up to around £1200 for an A2 sized portrait. He charges similar amounts for an acrylic painting in a pop art style.

Portraits take between two to eight weeks to complete depending on the nature of the commission.
