Neil Buchanan

Neil Buchanan is an internationally acclaimed artist and multi-award-winning television presenter and producer. He was the creator of Art Attack - one of the most decorated programs in TV history with over thirty awards worldwide. Neil says ​"My proudest moment was when Art Attack won the first two BAFTAS. For an ordinary lad from Liverpool, it doesn't get much better than that!"  Art Attack became an international TV phenomenon and for almost twenty years Neil presented and produced the show for ITV and Disney, becoming affectionately known as 'The Art Attack Man'.

Born in Liverpool and like many other young lads, Neil dreamed of being a professional footballer and spent most of his time on the local football pitch - his back street. Little did he know then that decades later, those same streets would provide the inspiration for his first full art collection HOPE STREET - a beautiful and nostalgic body of work based on memories of his own childhood.  Back then, Neil loved cartoons and says he "lived inside the Beano". He was so inspired by these cartoons and comics that he even used to tape his own drawings onto the glass on the front of his parent's TV so that they were lit up and seemingly brought to life by the flickering screen - just like a real cartoon.

Throughout Neil's career, his work has received many awards, accolades, and endorsements including those from Yoko Ono and Norman Rockwell's niece Jessica - herself an acclaimed American artist.  Perhaps most notably though Her Majesty The Queen - whose portrait he created out half a million pounds of real money - described his work as 'ingenious'.

Neil is an ambassador for the Prince's Trust for Children and the Arts and we are delighted to represent this irrepressible and multi-talented artist.
