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

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.

Jack Vettriano Limited Edition Giclee Prints from Photogold. Jack Vettriano was the subject of some debate last month when Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond chose one of his images, Let’s Twist Again , for his Christmas card. Despite this accolade a Scottish parliament group decided not to include any of Vettriano’s work in their art collection. MSP Ted Brocklebank said he hoped the First Minister’s use of the specially-commissioned Let’s Twist Again, which shows a glamorous couple dancing at a Christmas party, might prompt a change of heart.
Mr Brocklebank said: “If a man can sell as many paintings as he has, he must have something. Our parliament should be a place which represents the best of contemporary Scotland.”
Jack Vettriano has appeared on the BBC Breakfast time in an interview about his career and his new London exhibition which opens on Thursday. He speaks rather quietly and nervously about his work . He chats about the Singing Butler and his inspiration for the new images on show in London this week. ‘Days of Wine and Roses ‘ exhibition ran in Scotland for 6 weeks and it was very successful . The images are from Monaco , trams in Milan and his classic images including Dance me to the End of Love . You can also chat with Photogold about Vettriano on Twitter

His Singing Butler image has sold in millions since it was first published . Reaction to the move has been mixed . Some gallery owners have labelled the project “a shameless act of vanity” and an “undignified stunt”.
The Singing Butler creator has revealed that he is looking to create a group for his fans. It states: “We will soon be launching an online Private Members’ Club. Membership to the Club will include a number of benefits.”
Those joining the organisation will receive Â£100 in gift vouchers, exclusive chances to buy paintings, and priority booking for events where Vettriano will appear.”

Vettriano’s spokeswoman Isobel Delacroix said: “Unfortunately, we are not yet ready to release further information.”
A unique collaboration has taken place between Jack Vettriano and Sir Jackie Stewart . It took place when Sir Jackie, who is an art collector and a fan of Mr Vettriano’s work, contacted Vettriano last year .
They met up and eventually Mr Vettriano came up with an idea for three paintings after watching the Roman Polanski film about the 1971 Grand Prix called Weekend of a Champion and studying other photographs of the era.
Mr Vettriano, who divides his time between home in Nice, London and Scotland, said: “There’s a sense of romance in risk and danger, which is very compelling, and researching idea for my painting made me realise just how different Formula 1 was in Jackie’s era.
“I was astonished to be reminded that the cars were, as Jackie puts it, ‘petrol tanks on wheels’ and it really touched me to see just how involved the wives and girlfriends were in the whole process of the race.
