Artsbeat prediction was spot on

Exactly two years ago artsbeat predicted that canny art collectors would one day be snapping up the work of hyperrealist  artist Darren Reid.

He has come a long way since then and has recently been taken on by the prestigious Plus One Gallery in London where his paintings can command five-figure sums.

“I can’t believe what has happened in these two years but I am really thrilled. I have that first article framed on my wall and still grin when I read it,” he said.
