This holiday season, we’re taking a closer look at popular prints that have made their way into our customers’ wishlists. From Frida Kahlo inspired works by award-winning artist Hormazd Narielwalla, to abstract seascapes by Hastings-based painter Louise Body, there’s a fine art print to suit everyone on your Christmas list.
Hormazd Narielwalla became mesmerised by Frida Kahlo’s work after seeing a retrospective at the Tate.
Intricately collaged from vintage and bespoke tailoring patterns, Narielwalla’s artwork is reminiscent of his fashion roots. His latest collection of six limited edition prints, titled ‘Queens’, depict the Mexican artist in various cultural references, each suggesting she transcends her own culture into becoming universally accepted as an international icon.
The 1966 surf documentary film ‘The Endless Summer’ follows Californian surfers Mike Hynson and Robert August as they travel around the world chasing warm currents and big waves. Directed, produced, edited and narrated by Bruce Brown, the film was celebrated for its casual and high-spirited approach to documentary filmmaking.
This now iconic poster design was created by John Van Hamersveld, a fellow surfer and art director of ‘Surfing Illustrated’ magazine. The warm neon tones evoke the notion of an everlasting summer which is further reinforced by the refreshing line that, ‘On any day of the year it’s summer somewhere in the world.’
Presenting the man with the most famous blue eyes in movie history: Mr. Paul Newman. Pictured here aboard a water taxi, the Hollywood star makes a splash wearing a tuxedo and bow tie on his way to the 24th Venice International Film Festival in 1963.
Newman was at the festival for the premiere of his latest film, ‘Hud’ (1963). A revisionist-western, he played the unscrupulous Hud, who contends with his virtuous Rancher father Homer, and nephew Lennie. The film received much acclaim, and won the festival’s OCIC award.
In 2003, Fine Art graduate Louise Body took a slight detour from her painting roots as she set up her own company, designing and producing wallpaper and fabric. Body’s wallpapers were sold worldwide and led to some exciting collaborations with brands such as Paul Smith, Dr Martens and Osborne & Little. In March 2020, Louise made the decision to leave the world of wallpapers and textiles to paint full-time.
Based in Hastings, she is naturally drawn to her local seascapes for inspiration. ‘Safe Journey’ is inspired by the fishing boats that come into her local beach, which has the largest beach-launched fishing fleet in Europe. After building up layers of paint in her favoured palette of plaster pinks and mineral greens, Body scrapes the paint back to reveal pleasing textures and a great sense of movement.
