British menswear tailor and Official Licensee to Royal Ascot, Oliver Brown has announced an exciting collaboration with award winning equine artist Freddy Paske.

The collaboration has seen Freddy create two limited edition pieces of art on two Oliver Brown Melusine Top Hats in Freddy’s signature style depicting racehorses at Royal Ascot.

Freddy’s love of horses stems from an early age and he has developed this technique to capture the intricacies of the horse in motion. Freddy is known for his unique approach to light and movement, using bold brush strokes and vivid colours to perfectly convey motion in his subjects.

A former Officer in the British Army, Freddy Paske carried a sketchbook with him throughout his time in Afghanistan and spent rare moments of down time painting his surroundings. Upon his return to the UK in 2012, Freddy went on to sell all of his sketches from his operational tour and realised he could make a career out of his passion.

Freddy has previously worked as the Artist in Residence for the Household Cavalry, Tattersalls Auctioneers and The Jockey Club, and is represented by Europe’s premier sporting art gallery, the Osborne Studio Gallery, Belgravia.
