These are brilliant, particularly liking the 'Where have they come from' print. Trip to Bristol this weekend....
Hang on a minute. Heh. Love Andy Smith.
I love the way they are presented in the first photo. The strong primary colors really bring the all-white studio apartment to life!
Almost reminds me of the cat in the hat... these are so happy and colourful.
You can see more of his work on a website we just launched.
All kinds of splendid and lovely
more brilliantly creative work from a master
We've extended this exhibition until the end of August due to popular demand!
Now his work is also at The Old Sweet Shop gallery in west London
