Sturgeon in stockings & Salmond artwork to go on sale

  • Alfie Baron
The artwork titled "Angels of the North" is due to go on sale in Glasgow later this month. The artwork shows Nicola Sturgeon wearing stockings with Alex Salmond riding in the sidecar. The motorcycle even supports an "SNP" number plate!

The oil painting is the first politically themed portrait by Graham McKean, an artist from Irvine, North Ayrshire.

Graham said: "Angels of the North is the first in a series of paintings featuring some of our best-known politicians and major celebrities."

The work will go on sale at the Scottish contemporary art auction at McTear's on September 18th and is expected to fetch in excess of £4,000.

McTear's managing director Brian Clements said: "Graham's work always attracts a high level of interest at our auctions as he is one of Scotland's most recognisable and loved artists."
