'Tretchikoff revolutionised the art world by making his art accessible to the masses.  His philosophy was rooted in the belief that art should not be confined to elite circles or the walls of prestigious galleries, but should be available to everyone.

Vladimir Tretchikoff, born in 1913, was a self-taught artist whose distinctive style captured the hearts of millions. His work, characterized by its vivid colours and dramatic themes, offers a visual feast that continues to captivate audiences worldwide. Despite facing criticism, he remained committed to his vision, creating art for the people.'

It is in this spirit that we created versions of these beautiful Tretchkoff paintings, making it possible for an even wider audience to enjoy his artwork and recreate their own.  His vibrant and bold compositions and his embrace of popular culture align seamlessly with the paint by numbers approach.  Now you can create your own visually striking masterpiece, using his work as inspiration and our canvas as a guideline.

The Chinese Girl was painted in 1952.  Monica Pon-Su-San worked in her uncle's laundromat in Cape Town when the artist asked her to sit for him to paint her portrait.

'The painting gained popularity after renowned artist Vladimir Tretchikoff sold it to a woman in Chicago in 1953. It is distinct for the blue‚ green and copper shades used in the skin tone. So popular was the painting that it featured‚ amongst others‚ in David Bowie’s The Stars Are Out Tonight music video‚ in a Don Paterson poem God’s Gift To Women‚ The White Stripes music video Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground and Alfred’s Hitchcock’s film Frenzy.'

Our 40 x 50cm version of his striking and beautiful painting is fairly challenging and has 30 colours.  Each box contains a stretched, printed and numbered canvas, paint, brushes and a page detailing the numbers for an extra reference.
