Conor Murgatroyd is a Bradford-born artist, known for painting still life pieces and distinctly-British landscapes, inspired by a mix of past events, wistful memories, emotions and pure imagination.
Avin a Butchers is an original painting depicting a cat staring longingly through the window of its local butchers. The piece is one in a line of works by the artist to capture the action inside typical shops, alongside hungry pets wishing they’d remembered to bring their purse.
Murgatroyd explains: ‘I love shopping. For food, clothes, jewellery, fish, you name it. I get a kick out of it. I wanted to create work about my favourite shops and the people in them. I love good characters, they’re what makes the world go round, and the places I paint are full of them.’
Avin A Butchers is an original piece created with enamel on canvas by contemporary artist, Conor Murgatroyd. The painting is signed by the artist in verso.

About the artist
Conor Murgatroyd is a Bradford-born, London-based artist, known for colourful and structured paintings. Distinctively British in appearance and sense of humour, his art evokes a feeling of nostalgia and strives to, ‘make sense of the tangled web of influences, events and emotions that make up the existential human experience.’
Often likened to René Magritte and David Hockney, Murgatroyd’s art is inspired by his working-class roots, multiculturalism and the people and places he has encountered since moving to the capital.
In his paintings, Murgatroyd bring together characters and objects, both real and imagined, to inspire the observer to consider the raw beauty of everyday moments and things.
