I love this one.

I haven't seen that one before. I like that. I don't like anything too instantly recognisable. I've heard of DH obviously and seen plenty of his stuff but not that one... maybe that's just me.

It's quite a recent one - it was in the exhibition that was on at the RA a couple of years ago. Huge IRL. Fantastic exhibition all together.

I am a big fan of Bridget Riley, but she doesn't seem to licence many posters. Hmm.

Anything here appeal?

There are quite a lot of local art fairs at this time of year - perhaps you could find an original artwork instead of a poster? I'm planning a trip to this one.

I like the picture in your second link more.

I prefer semi abstract naive art, and industrial art. Will have to pop back with links

Thanks, what's industrial art? like lowry?

I love local fairs. I have an awful lot of white wall at the moment!

I picked up 3 lovely large framed prints in a charity shop last week for under a tenner for the 3shock. They look brand new. They are up and look great. I've got about a dozen pieces of wall art, prints, canvasses etc which I switch around.

This sort of thing would be more my cup of tea,in warmer colours.

thatbloodywoman I know it's personal but I don't like photographs. That looks like a fallopian tube or something.
