Jordy Kerwick for The Telegraph UK

Australian artist Jordy Kerwick features in The Telegraph UK article, '£200,000 for a cartoon tiger? How a self-taught artist became a billionaire must-have.' The article coincides with Kerwick's exhibition Vertical Planes with Vigo Gallery Wellington Arch, London, "Like most of his gallery exhibitions, his latest, in the English Heritage setting of Wellington Arch, the grade 1-listed monument on Hyde Park Corner... sold out before it opened".

Among them are the billionaire hedge funder, Steven A Cohen (who famously bought Damien Hirst’s shark in a formaldehyde-filled tank for the Museum of Modern Art in New York), French luxury goods kingpin, Bernard Arnault, Yusaku Maezawa (the Japanese online retailer who paid a record $110.5 million for a painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat in 2017) and Korean rap star, T.O.P. High flying artists who have supported him are the Americans Marc Grotjahn and Richard Prince.
