Nick Monro was born 1936 in London and studied at Chelsea School of Art (1958-1961).  He exhibited with the Treadwell Gallery during 1973 and 1974.  Unquestionably, a major British Pop artist, but sadly neglected throughout the eighties and nineties and until quite recently, when there has been a revival of interest in British Pop Art. In the latter part of the sixties, he had some success with London`s Robert Fraser Gallery, where he memorably exhibited a gallery full of fibreglass sheep (40 of them, I think) which were sold to a German collector and have not been heard of since.  In 1972, Commissioned by the Peter Stuyvescent foundation to make a sculpture for the Birmingham Bull Ring, he made a 21 foot high King Kong, which was rejected wholeheartedly by Birmingham, but sold to a Car Company, which changed it`s name to the King Kong Car Co. King Kong was last seen in an Edinburgh Market, having been painted pink.  The Sand Dancers ( the forties Music Hall Act – Wilson, Kepple and Betty) which is part of the Treadwell Collection were originally made for the Sands Hotel, in Edinburgh.
