Meanwhile, two of Griffiths' portraits depicting the royal wedding between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, are currently on show at the Albany Gallery's summer exhibition, which runs until Saturday 3 September.
Griffiths' two paintings depict the Horse Guards Parade and William and Kate's famous kiss.

The artist explains why he was inspired to capture the moment on canvas: "While we were all being bombarded with images of the Royal Wedding, here are my own snapshots in oil paint of a memorable event.
"Television, magazines, newspapers and the internet provided us with so many wonderful pictures, it was difficult to decide which images, pieced together, to paint.
"Unlike commissioned portraits which seem to take forever, these are speedily produced impressionist studies attempting to capture that fleeting moment."
