Timmy won Best Up and Coming Artist at the Fine Art Trade Guild Awards 2012.
Starting his career in radio, Timmy Mallett is probably best-known as the ‘Utterly Brilliant’ presenter on 80s kids TV show Wacaday where his Mallett’s Mallet word association game is the stuff of legends for anyone in their 30s today! In more recent years, he has gained a reputation for being just as versatile and colourful in his artistic endeavours.
Timmy loves painting (mainly in acrylics), and will reach for his ‘Mallett’s Palette’ at the drop of a brush. He is a really talented artist who takes his inspiration from this country and from trips all over the world. His many and varied paintings glow with colour.
A love of painting came at an early age to Timmy and he studied History of Art as part of his degree at Warwick University and so it is a dream come true for Timmy to be painting for much of his time now.
Rolf Harris says, “He is an enthusiastic and exciting artist...I’m knocked out by his work.”
