Artist Kaya Mar and his satirical paintings of David Cameron, George Osborne and other politicians have become a regular fixture at major political and legal events such as the budget announcement and the Leveson Inquiry.

Originally a landscape and portrait painter, Mar was encouraged to produce satirical paintings during a portrait session with the late Labour politician Tony Benn. He has been producing and displaying his political paintings since the Conservative-Liberal Democrat coalition was formed in May 2010.

Born to Spanish parents, he grew up in Turkey and came to Britain nearly 40 years ago. He describes himself as "as left wing but not a militant". Mar's website features more of his paintings, many of which are for sale.
