Georgie Wheeler brings her madcap, nostalgia-laden, funky, graphic show to Hastings
See Spray Gallery, with a massive hit of colour and cheekiness.
Working in a range of media including acrylics, watercolour, biro and spray paint, all brought together in a part chaotic, part realistic lasagne of jolliness.
Wheeler was the head of Art at Watford Grammar School for Girls, specialising in Graphics, Fine Art and Photography. Now residing on Hastings as a full time artists. she is part of the South Coast art capital.
Graduating with a Fine Art Degree at Nottingham Trent University exposed Wheeler to the wonderful world of social deviants and shock art narrative.
Pick 'n' Mix brings together her Mixtape 80s series, which summarises popular culture, smash hits and an iconic 80's design style in ten oversized cassette tapes. Alongside these, are a series of 'borrowed forgotten' pieces, where she has humourosly embellished kitsch landscapes and figurative paintings from the 70's and 80's with slightly misfitting characters.
