William 'Billy The Brush' Mumford
The worlds most prolific reformed art forger
A uniquely gifted artist
William 'Billy The Brush’ Mumford first rose to prominence in the 1990s when he painted near-exact versions of the works of L.S Lowry, Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso among others and passed them off as originals.
He was eventually jailed for two years after putting more than £6 million in fake works through some of the art world’s best-known auction houses.
This incredibly talented artist's works have now become masterpieces in their own right
