minty! fresh! retroville!

I stroll past Per Square Metre quite often, and always stop to peer inside. Today saw me run in and look longingly at each canvas. Why? Retroville has arrived!

Mike Healy’s work is heavily influenced by 50’s and 60’s illustration, ad copy, pop art and comics. Think pastel colours, aproned housewives, and women’s mags, and you’re there. Click on artwork for sale to see some.

Of course, I wanted to buy everything, but by some act of willpower did not. Went back later to show Mr Joffa though…On til September 14, well worth a visit.

About Vetti

I love good coffee, street art, tiki bars and kitsch. Adore roller derby and quiffs and vintage Hawaiian shirts. Enjoy a slice of my northside life!
