Jamie Gallagher is a painter, as well as husband, dad, entrepreneurial creative director and coffee addict. He also lives down the road from us in Somerset.

Like most of us, he's not JUST a painter. Jamie runs design studio Hello. He founded Werkhouse, a free scheme where creative industry top johnnies help budding young creatives a route into the industry. He also create cycling/coffee brand Paniagua, which is how we connected. Plus, on Fridays he spends the day in his studio, making beautiful things, usually with oils. PHEW.

The first time I (hello, it's Nick) met Jamie, we talked so long and so intensely, we forgot to eat and fried ourselves. I walked out of the bar we were in, a wreck, my mind full of ideas, a mouth aching from jabbering and zero sugar in my blood. 

Which is a great and lovely thing. Exactly what FRAHM is all about.

As we talked about life, loss, creativity and bikes, I found he was painter too. I had to look. It's always scary looking at someone's work in front of them. Art is so subjective. What if I wasn't into it? The old dilemma. I'm a terrible faker. But I really REALLY love what he's doing. I'm a portrait and Francis Bacon obsessive and a huge fan of oils and intense colours. Without wanting to get too pretentious, but I'm going to anyway, looking at these is like a mainline to my soul. So yea, like. Love. 

 

His work is online here: Jamie Gallagher. For a taste, see below...

 

What do you think? Love them as much as we do? Do comment below. You don't have to like it, but you do have to be polite. Obviously.
