Selected works by Michael Fullerton

Michael Fullerton
David Milligan (Surveillance specialist, Glasgow City Council, Housing Benefit Anti-Fraud Unit)


Oil on linen

90 x 70 cm

This portrait is of Glaswegian David Milligan - known amongst the artists community as the ‘dole spy’ for his undercover work for the Social Services.

Michael Fullerton
Vidal Sasoon's Mother


Oil on canvas

47.5 x 47.2 cm

Fullerton is a young Scottish painter, whose portrait has very little to do with Vidal Sassoon’s mother. His interest is in hair and Sassoon’s role at the forefront of “styling” in the seventies, and his emergence as a world brand. Fullerton is a political artist whose work indicates an off-kilter affection for his subjects.
