Tuesday 17th May: Hattie Stewart at Firstsite

Illustrator / Artist Hattie Stewart hails from the same home-town as me, initially studying art in Colchester in Essex.  She has returned to bring her distinctive style to the local modern art museum as part of the current Andy Warhol exhibition.  With reference to Warhol's cow wallpaper, Hattie has made a repeat pattern of her prints to line a gallery with her own pop-art fly-posters.  Her doodle-bombing is diplayed alongside smaller detailed paintings on shelves to complete her own world within the "Andy Warhol: Artist Rooms" themed show. You can purchase replicas of the posters in the museum's shop!
