Jack Vettriano says he paints in a ” raunchy style – which he describes as “a cross between old railway posters and the covers of pulp fiction novels” If you have seen the pictures he published in the past – Game On, Night and the City, and 4 other images – you would know exactly what he means.Even older images like Cocktails and Broken Hearts have a smouldering eroticism albeit a whole lot subtler than his recent images Cocktails and Broken Hearts
Why did Jack Vettriano change his name ?
Vettriano had a breakthrough in 1988, when he had two paintings accepted by the Royal Scottish Academy summer show. Once he found a gallery, he gave up work, moved to Edinburgh and changed his name to Vettriano – his mother’s maiden name – to distance himself from all the copies he had painted as Jack Hoggan.

The art gallery itself is almost full to bursting point . There are queues to see certain pictures and there is a queue at the till in the exhibition shop. The postcard rack is emptying fast and the limited edition prints are being snapped up.
Jack Vettriano has cooperated with other artists and bands in Scotland , most notable the Scottish band St Jude’s Infirmary . He starred in the video of the band’s song ‘Goodbye Jack Vettriano’ which was recorded yesterday on the beach at Edinburgh. The band faithfully recreated the scene of Vettriano’s most famous image of the Singing Butler
They only intended to ask his permission to recreate some of his paintings in the shoot, but they were stunned when the elusive artist volunteered to feature in the video.
He made the offer after the band presented him with a copy of the song during a hastily arranged meeting at Edinburgh Airport last Sunday.
Drummer Mark Francis, 31, said: “He rang us up later to tell us he loved the track and also said that he would appear in the music show video. Mr Vettriano then called us later in the week to tell us that he has talked Ian Rankin into getting involved as well.
“We’re delighted that they are both coming to Porty beach. Jack wants to have ‘love’ tattooed on his knuckles – just like in the lyrics of our song.” Guitarist and cellist Ashley Campbell, 28, added: “It’s all just snowballed from when we met him at the weekend. “He had heard of our collaboration with Ian, and we put them in touch with each other for what will be a rather surreal and exciting day for us. “Jack’s agreed to recreate some of the poses from his paintings and he’s going to get Ian to do the same. “The finished video should look great. “Jack’s annoyed they didn’t take us all to Leven beach, which is the inspiration for the beaches in his paintings. I’m sure the Edinburgh Riviera will do just as nicely though.”

Night-time Rituals II is for sale at a special charity auction and is expected to raise over £100,000.
The proceeds from the auction are going to help Sir Tom Hunter’s international philanthropy group The Hunter Foundation, and Vettriano said he was delighted to be able to help with the Great Scot Awards Charity Auction 2012.
“I was lucky enough to have been given the Great Scot of the Year Award in 2010 and feel hugely honoured that I have somehow ended up in a peer group of recipients that includes Sir Jackie Stewart and Sir Tom Hunter,” he commented.
“I was asked to donate a painting for the charity auction and have chosen Night-time Rituals II, which explores a theme that I like to return to from time to time – it’s about creating an atmosphere of anticipation and indulging in those rare moments where all your senses collide.”
The 61-year-old artist, acclaimed for incredibly popular works such as the £750,000 work The Singing Butler, is just one of the big names involved in the annual event.
