Tony, you may recall, worked with us at the famous Chelsea Flower show, where Tony has a prodigious reputation including 3 Best in Shows and an astonishing 8 RHS Gold Medals! Tony has since spread his wings into the wider world of conceptual art and he was joined by some big names in British art at the exhibition.

Other artists present were Sinclair Watkins, Daphne Bampanioti and the mysterious Jane Woollatt. Trinity Buoy Wharf is a young arts quarter on the North bank of the Thames opposite the O2 Dome.
