Want to know how KY Jelly and cold coffee can help you produce a work of art that looks like it's set you back a few hundred thousand pounds? Then John Myatt is your man...
John Myatt started out as an art school graduate who, having discovered an aptitude for mimicking the styles of other artists, found his friends were requesting his works, and were prepared to pay for them. He followed this up with an advert in Private Eye which read "Genuine fakes. Nineteen and twentieth century paintings from ?150", through which he met art dealer and master provenance-faker John Drewe. Drewe originally gave Myatt a few private commissions, but having sold one of the paintings at auction as an original, he let Myatt in on the game and together they sold over 200 paintings, anything from Monets and Renoirs to Hockneys and Chagalls, over 120 of which - it is thought - are still in circulation.
