Stephen Wiltshire appoints Midas PR / Arts division

As reported by Gorkana.com:

Midas Public Relations’ arts division has won the brief to publicise the work of artist Stephen Wiltshire MBE, best known for his detailed pen and ink cityscapes.

Stephen, has developed a global following for his accurate sketches of cities, sometimes produced after only brief observation.

Midas will introduce Stephen’s art to a new, younger and wider audience, promoting his international commissions and working on a new licensing programme.

The Midas account team will be led by executive managing director Penny Clifton, reporting to Zoltan Szipola, managing director of the Stephen Wiltshire Gallery in London’s Pall Mall.

Zoltan said: “Stephen is already well recognised as a world-class artist, but we have chosen to partner with Midas to give a fresh perspective to Stephen, the man and his work.

“This will lay the foundations for our planned gallery openings in the USA, as well as a major product licensing campaign.”

Three other artists have joined Midas’ expanding arts client list in recent weeks: Alessandro Botto, Andrea Batorfi, and Pierre Cordier, all of whom have forthcoming London exhibitions.
