Beckenham markets Bookmark Competition closing date 20th November

Beckenham Market always encourages creativity and originality. For our first arts competition we have the honour of working together with the wonderful artist Danny Rolph.



We asked Danny how he got into making art and he said:

I got in to art the usual way. After being thrown out of a physics lesson at school, aged 15, I wandered over to the art room and started a conversation with an inspirational teacher named Iain Rutherford, who gave me a book on Mondrian and some oil paints and told me to think with my hands.
