Max Brandrett: The Worlds Greatest Art Forger

Friday 10th February

5:00pm

The Cambridge Union

Max Brandrett is the most notorious art forger in the world, and has forged over 500 paintings of artists from Caravaggio to Banksy. Brandrett was jailed three times for forgery and is banned from every auction house in London as well as eBay. He has now made a legitimate business out of copying paintings, giving thousands to charity. From his time in the circus as an elephant groomer to forging for the Kray twins, Brandrett has a wealth of surreal experiences to share, and will be holding a book signing for his memoirs after the event. Brandrett will also be treating us to a live tutorial in art-forgery techniques, and we hear a lucky audience member might just receive a Banksy to boot.
