The art of the toilet


Scanning the news on the BBC website  we came across a feature about unfashionable British artists long forgotten but who deserve a more exulted place in art history.

One of those artists is John Bratby 1928-1992. His specialty – painting toilets. He also gave us the term ‘kitchen sink’ meaning the depiction of working class life in a realistic gritty way which was popular in the 1950s and 1960s.

Are there any Drain Doctors out there with hidden artistic talents? We’d like to hear from you for a future feature on the blog.
