'Holidaying in Blighty' Exhibition

Coastal Creatives are thrilled to be exhibiting an exclusive collection of seaside themed wall art by Norfolk artist Andy Povey, also known as 'Norfolk Boy'.

Living by the sea with his wife, six children and a Ford transit, Andy scours the coast looking for inspiration, collecting driftwood and other natural found objects to re-work into humorous and nostalgic pieces of seaside art. Andy’s design ideas come from handwritten farm, sale and tourist attraction signs and his love for all things retro.

Gallery owner Louise Mitchell says “The collection evokes happy childhood memories of living by or visiting the seaside, eating ice creams, building sandcastles and riding Bette the donkey. Andy Povey's unique style and play on words are a contemporary twist to seaside kitsch!"

The exhibition opens at the gallery on Saturday 2nd May closing Saturday 6th June. All originals and prints will also be available to purchase from the website- http://www.coastalcreatives.co.uk/ click on Picture Perfect link on the toolbar .
