At the Bowie/Collector Auction at Sotheby's in November 2016

Abreviated Version

My name is Andrew Bunce and I love collecting all types of art, but mainly 20th and 21st century British Pictures.

I have always loved pictures but I only began collecting when I was looking to choose my present for my 21st birthday in 1980 or 1981.   Up until then I thought buying paintings was reserved for the very rich, but in visiting galleries and auctions I discovered how affordable and accessible original art really is.   Since then I have bought lots of pictures from many varied sources.

I retired in 2015 and am now able to devote more time to my pictures.   For the whole of my working life I was involved in selling snowploughs, snowblowers, Salt spreaders and sweepers …… if you can sell those in the UK then I guess you can sell pretty much anything!   We sold mainly in the UK but some of my overseas sales include snowploughs to Ghana and Nigeria which pretty well proves my point!?
