This just released portrait of Jack O’Connell was taken for the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery by Tereza Cervenova, the 2015 John Kobal New Work Award winner. It will be hung in the gallery in late 2017.

Our HOLLYWOOD ICONS touring exhibition has opened at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome (after a successful stay at the Espaco Cultural Porto Seguro, Sao Paulo, Brazil and the Villa Manin, Italy) and can be visited there through to September 17th 2017.

Go visit if you are in Rome. The Palazzo is a beautiful building and the exhibition looks sensational there!
