Alasdair Banks

Performance Polo painting by Alasdair Banks - Otway & Orford

Otway & Orford are proud to collaborate with contemporary Scottish artist Alasdair Banks on our stylish and unique high goal polo silk pocket square, ‘Performance Polo’.

Alasdair has developed a style unique in the genre of equine art. His works are large, colourful and explore ways of conveying dramatic movement with Alasdair’s own individual treatment of expressive line and colour.

Alasdair’s original artwork was created in oil on canvas and inspired by the spectacle of high goal polo with its speed, skill, bravery of player and pony alike, bright colours and soundtrack of thundering hooves and mallet on ball. There are few better examples of expressive line and colour than the dramatic ‘Performance Polo’.
