Latest update June 2023:
Welcome to our latest update, and the final update of what is known as 'RetroSixty'. We are rebranding the website under the name of 'Nick Waters Affordable Art' to sit alongside our sister website and business Nick Waters Art.
RetroSixty was originally founded in 2006 predominately to host our stock of mid century design and art and the current business name doesn't reflect what we are offering now. The website will continue to be an affordable way into the acquisition of predominately Modern British Art at prices between £100-750. All customer purchases within the UK mainland will continue to benefit from free packaging and delivery to a high standard.
This update to the website contains nine new works by John Loker (b1938), five works by Mary Malenoir (b1940), an abstract oil painting by Bruce Hurn (b1926), a watercolour by the marine artist Donald Greig (1916-2009) and finally an etching by member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours, Aimee Birnbaum.
Thank you very much for your past custom and continued interest. Please drop me a line or give me a call if you have any special collecting interests as some stock is not on the website.
