Stall holder for Cheap Affair at Sounds From The Other City festival

Gareth Cairns says, “My work is a celebration of the icons of popular culture, and the way in which they are irreversibly woven into our everyday lives, memories and shared experience of life. I like to create colourful and lively images in order to celebrate and pay homage to these icons.

On the day I'll be selling original paintings (acrylic) in a variety of sizes and price ranges. I'll also be raffling off one piece of artwork, which will go to one lucky winner. I'll be selling small photographs/ prints/ postcards of my work too.”

Nayna Lad has always been interested in the human form, which is clearly depicted in many of her paintings. The work attempts to create movement and emotions through an expressive and abstract technique. Her work has gone through circles of change that has occurred to assist me to develop a particular style that she feels confident and comfortable working with.
