The Chairman of Peel Holdings, John Whittaker, first commissioned four paintings to celebrate the opening of the Trafford Centre. These paintings now hang in the Chairman’s Suite at the Centre.
UK Artist Philip Horrocks was chosen for these prestigious commissions because of his technical virtuosity and his knowledge of the local area.
Mr Whittaker has continued to be a very good client of ARTZU and has commissioned other paintings including a special oil portrait of his mother and father and a commission in memory of his mother.
” I first met Nick Betney in 1998 shortly after he opened his first ARTZU Gallery. Since then ARTZU has grown to be one of the leading suppliers of contemporary art outside London.
Peel Holdings first commissioned four paintings of the then newly constructed Trafford Centre. These paintings now hang in the Chairman’s Suite at the Centre. I then decided to commission a special oil portrait of my mother and father followed by a further commision in memory of my mother. I have been very pleased with the work and level of service from ARTZU and wish them every success in the future. ”
