Over the past decade Teddy McDonald has been profiled by GQ magazine as the 'Artist to Watch,' his customised guitars have been played by Ed Sheeran on the Multiply and Divide world tours and he is the first artist to create a painting with members of the British royal family, notably HRH Princess Eugenie and HRH Princess Beatrice, raising funds for a childrens charity.
Visually identifiable through a process of flattening the three dimensional world, Teddy McDonald's work is focused on the female form, positive quotation, universally recognised iconography and a palette of uplifting 'sunshine' colours. Whilst his practice principles are eco-design led, employing eco-friendly water-based paints not tested on animals and re-purposed canvas and other sustainable mediums.
Teddy McDonald has attained a cult following with works acquired by global icons including long term supporter and FIAT heir Lapo Elkann, Ed Sheeran, Flavio Manzoni for Ferrari S.p.A, the Lohan family, royalty and a number of private art collectors.
Teddy McDonald has shown his work independently in London, New York and Los Angeles. In addition and in collaboration with GQ magazine he has exhibited a painting at Vogue House, London and exhibited Ferrari-themed works for a VIP event at an official Ferrari dealership. Commercial commissions include projects for an official Ferrari dealership, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars London and the Royal Agricultural University.
Teddy McDonald's artistic influences primarily include Matisse, David Hockney, Alexander Calder, Ashley Bickerton, Alex Katz, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring.
