Lot 1: Tower View

2019 (12.5 x 17.3cm)

2020 (12.5 x 17.3cm)

Reserve – £50

The Elizabeth Tower (renamed to mark the Diamond Jubilee in 2012) is known across the world as the home of ‘Big Ben’. An amazing piece, well suited to any Londoner’s office wall.

Reserve – £50

A portrait of Bob Dylan, one of the most influential figures in music.

With over 600 classic songs to his name, and numerous awards (including a Nobel Prize), a piece of incredible art worthy of any wall!

2020 (12.5 x 17.3cm)

Reserve – £50

With over 5 million sold, the newest version of the classic Mini is still just as popular as ever. Brilliantly detailed depiction of the front end of a Mini sport – inspired by Dustine’s first viewing of the remade ‘Italian Job’

A side-on view of an American C-53 Skytrooper.  A dedicated troop transporter, this plane amongst others was an integral part of the D-Day invasion of Normandy (as seen in HBO’s Band of Brothers).

Lot 10: ‘Just my type’

2020 (12.5 x 17.3cm)

Reserve – £50

Who doesn’t find a killer rear end to be a thing of beauty?  The back panel and exhaust of a classic Jaguar E-type in all its glory.

Lot 11: ‘Spoke and Chrome’

2020 (12.5 x 17.3cm)

Reserve – £50

British cars don’t come any more classic than the Jaguar E-type and who can resist a bit of chrome!

One of Dustine’s earliest pieces of work post-injury: this item captures a typical evening scene on the underground, synonymous with London.

2016 (12.5 x 17.3cm)

Reserve – £50

A beautiful portrait of a river hippopotamus, emerging from the water.

Africa’s second most deadly animal (behind the Tsetse fly), although for now this loveable-looking giant seems content watching you from a distance.

Lot 15: ‘Out of this World’

2020 (12.5 x 17.3cm)
