A TALENTED Vale artist says he’s not really a man for commissions, but he may be willing to make an exception after a member of one of the world’s most famous bands got in touch.

Liam Howlett, co-founder of The Prodigy messaged Ross Muir on Instagram to say he was “loving his work” and to ask if one of his original paintings was still for sale.

The musician was keen to snap up Ross’ Green Lady, which is a modern re-make of Vladimir Tretchikoff’s 1952 Chinese Girl painting, often known as the Green Lady.

In his trademark style, Ross’ version of the iconic image has been updated with the addition of an Adidas tracksuit.

Unfortunately for Liam, however, the piece was sold a few months ago, leading Ross to offer an XL print on the house or to do another take on the Green Lady.

The offer was appreciated by the 47-year-old who replied: “Cheers geezer. Yeah it’s a great piece. I’d love one of your originals really. What kind of money to do another Green Lady?”

Such high praise, however, is nothing new for former drug addict Ross, who has received acclaim for his work after seeing his take on a Van Gogh self portrait go viral and turning his life around to become an artist.
