It's a cold and frosty morning here again in Dorset. but if you're off work or visiting Swanage and Purbeck today it's going to be a cracking day! Get your shoes on and enjoy the glorious sunshine - you might feel like popping in and saying hello and perusing the gorgeous art including this stunner from @nicholashelyh
‘A kiss on the lips’ by Christine Trueman, a vibrant portraying of Marilyn Monroe. Now currently available as a Limited Edition print, with 40% off for just £120.
Trueman is a local Belfast artist inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood. Trueman is as glamorous as the women in her paintings, all fake fur and heels. But when she talks, she's pure Belfast. Trueman isn't interested in modern cinema at all when she pictures herself having tea with a friend, it's not Nicole Kidman sitting opposite, but Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor. This love of glamour and classical Hollywood screen sirens is depicted in her art. Trueman's signature style is the use of multi-coloured acrylic paints applied in impasto style.
