How it all started
In the beginning of 2000 a group of Entrepreneurs had a fabulous idea… Open a restaurant for artists to showcase their artwork! Customers could browse the artworks, have dinner, enjoy a cocktail or two whilst deciding on their purchase.
With our roots in commercial art, Ainslie was invited to create the brand, and oversea the the project. He was searching for a concept to promote the bar, and pop art portraits proved the perfect fit. Creating supersized portraits for the owners was just the beginning, and “The Art Bar” grew to be a huge success.
Ainslie’s growing reputation has lead to commissions from many celebrities. His art work resonates with a great sense of provenance and attracts a raft of people from all walks of life, including the worlds of art, fashion, music, advertising and commerce.
