Brighton based artist and tv personality Dave Pop! has an exhibition of new work on show at Brush Gallery from July 26th launching Pride season in Brighton.

‘Wonderful Darling’ is a celebration of camp, flamboyancy and all things trashy and no good. Statues of Greek gods become comic book heroes in a mash up of Pop meets Classical art. Effeminate nudes, giant floral and even Kylie Minogue, all compete for attention in the bright, brash world of Dave Pop! There is also a strong Brighton flavour, Dave's home for the last 25 years, with influences from the decadent Brighton pavilion, end of the pier rides and saucy seaside postcards.

The exhibition will open with a Private View on Thursday July 25th at 7pm. If you would like to attend please RSVP to hello | brushbrighton ! co ! uk
The exhibition will run until August 27th. The gallery is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday 11-5 and some Sundays. Please check the website www.brushbrighton.co.uk for more details.

More info:
The art process always starts with drawing, this is fundamental to all of Dave's work. Pencil sketches are then refined into ink drawings, then scanned, digitally manipulated, printed, painted over, creating a combination of hand made brush strokes, splats, spots and perfectly smooth lines.

Dave recently had a Rocky Horror exhibition in the Theatre Royal, and painted a large mural on Brighton’s Palace Pier. This is his first exhibition since the sad demise of Choccywoccydoodah, where Dave was head chocolatier, making extraordinary chocolate sculptures for the rich and famous.

Dave says, "When I was younger, I definitely rejected the idea of camp and the old fashioned gay stereotypes, but as I become more 'mature', I have embraced my love of the outrageous, ostentatious and theatrical. In a world growing steadily more conservative and dour, we need rainbow unicorns more than ever!"
