Latest News: Introducing Peter Vaillant: he is one of our customers and has made a giant leap in personalising his DS3. One thing for sure he doesn’t have a problem finding his car in a car park! Peter is a British Abstract Artist working from studios in London and Devon. His car was exhibited in 2013 at some big Citroen events not only in the UK, but also in Paris, Cannes, Nice, Monaco and Milan over the festival periods. Peter has been recognised as an abstract artist phenomenon, obtaining notoriety, through private and corporate commissions, acquirement and favourable reviews to endorse his artwork. Peter's artwork is modern and unique, completely distinguishable to his peers, it is intrepid, playful and totally enjoyable to gaze upon. He's got sounding approval from Nigel Hurst CEO of Saatchi Gallery, Turner Prize nominee Ian Davenport and Sir David Hockney being fans of his work. Peter's artwork is adorning public and private collections, thus confirming his international success. Examples include Liverpool Cathedral which acquired ‘Praise’ a painting which hangs alongside artwork of Tracey Emin and Dame Elisabeth Frink. Other notable examples include Peter Vaillant’s BBC commission for Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Pageant and joining Sir David Hockney in showcasing the painting at London.

To start at the very beginning we must step back in time... to 1947. The year when the mobile phone was first sketched out when the government decided to nationalise the coal industry and the year of yet another royal wedding (this time for Queen Elizabeth). A time when a gallon of petrol or a pint of beer set you back 3-4 shillings, with there being 20 shillings in a £1! The picture of Bellamys in 1947 gives a good idea of just how far we have come.
