The Auf Wiedersehen, Pet icon was approached by gallery owner Domenic Pontone to produce a presentation after 14 of his paintings were shown at Salford’s Lowry Gallery two years ago.
On his surprise venture, the Harry Potter star told The Guardian: ‘Talk about being a bit stunned. I’ve always liked a challenge but I thought: Jesus, can I do this?
‘Thousands of brilliant artists never get recognised and I’m aware of that as well. That’s not lost on me, that I’ve been given this opportunity when there are brilliant artists who don’t get a look in.
‘I’ve applied myself to this, not as an evening thing or a hobby but as an absolute determined thing. I went through it and did it. I went through the whole process and I’m not an impostor because I’ve done it.’

On a mission: The King’s Speech star recalled painting in between takes and used some of the 16,000 pictures he had stored on his computer to find his style (Timothy’s painting above)
Skilled: In 2019, Timothy portrayed the role of another artist, L. S. Lowry (R in 1965), in Mrs Lowry & Son (L) – a film based on the late drawer’s life
‘He had an interest in art as well – no real training but he was certainly interested in Turner, obsessed by Turner. He was very tenacious. He never cut corners and was very diligent – it was quite impressive to see.’

The occasional presenter was given an ‘intense’ art foundation course to help him portray the professionals to the best of his abilities.
On Pontone Gallery’s site, Timothy’s exhibition is explained as: ‘His thorough preparation for his award-winning role as Mr Turner in the eponymous film, laid the groundwork for this foray into painting.
‘This experience provided the spark and confidence to set himself a rigorous and public challenge. Mounting such an exhibition is not done lightly, and Pontone Gallery is delighted to present Spall’s inaugural solo exhibition in London.’
