We ❤ Warhol will feature screen-prints and paintings all for sale by artists influenced by the iconic American artist, Andy Warhol responsible for 1966 film Chelsea Girls, and leader in the visual art movement ‘Pop Art’. He famously used multi-media techniques such as silk screening and printmaking to produce his masterpieces and has inspired artists all over the world to explore computer generated art.

Art in the Heart will showcase the works of local silkscreen printer Jérôme Hunt and pop artist Diane Nowell. Jérôme is known for his impressionistic oil paintings but is also a top class screen printer transforming everyday life and landscape into a pop art frenzy. Diane, who quotes Warhol on her website, started painting for budget Christmas presents. Now she has a huge following and commissions by the day.

Art in the Heart has been a big supporter of their work over the last three years and is excited to celebrate Andy Warhol with them.

The gallery is open Monday to Saturday.
