Kitchen Gallery welcomed VIP guests to its luxury Flagship in Mailbox for an evening with the founding member of UB40, Brian Travers.
On December 1st guests were treated to an exclusive glimpse of Brian’s newest compositions whilst sipping on Louis Roederer Champagne and exquisite Canapés cooked and prepared by Chef Scott Whitehouse using Gaggenau Appliances.
Kitchen Gallery and Brian Travers would like to thank all of their guests for joining them for a VIP Evening showcasing Brian’s Art Collection, SieMatic Kitchens from showcasing the Style Collections PURE / URBAN / CLASSIC, the Gaggenau experience and an exclusive showcase of Watches of Switzerland’s latest collection.
We decorate space with art & we decorate time with music.
This was the mission statement from Brian Travers Art Studio as the UB40 Saxman highlighted his beliefs and ambitions for the future with his increasingly popular art career.
Brian also explained that he prefers to independently exhibit and sell his wonderful pieces through chosen brands such as Kitchen Gallery and Watches of Switzerland rather than mainstream art galleries and publishing houses.
A self-taught sax player, Brian is now finally fulfilling his artistic potential after over four decades of keeping his talent under wraps.
He made his art debut last September, with his first exhibition filling the entirety of Harborne’s independent Havill and Travis gallery. Having been described as a versatile painter, Brian is starting creating a real stir in the art world, despite still dedicating six months of his year to touring the globe. Brain said:
Art was my initial platform to express myself; believe it or not I have been painting longer than I have been performing with UB40. It’s wonderful to finally be able to bring my passion for art into the spotlight, and share it with my home city.
Honest, inventive and humorous as always, Brian also touched on his growing involvement with Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice in Coventry, which offers respite and palliative terminal care to babies and support to their parents.
