Our regular readers will probably know by now that Noel Fielding‘s new exhibition of watercolour paintings He Wore Dreams Around Unkind Faces, is currently showing at the Royal Albert Hall in London. What you may not be aware of, however, is that they are available to buy.
A collection of forty nine paintings are for sale through Noel’s art dealer, Tania Wade (Hooligan Art Dealer), via her website. Some saving up may be required, but the paintings are truly stunning, and they provide a fascinating new perspective on the unique world of Noel’s imagination. For those of you who are hungry to see more, a few extra pieces have been featured on the site which aren’t in the exhibition or for sale.
Noel himself has described the show as, “A kind of pop-art version of paintings you see in dusty old mansions and castles in Scooby Doo,” adding, “I’d never used watercolours before in my life, it was a gamble, but I kept thinking…it’s only the Royal Albert Hall, so if it all goes wrong it’s only thousands of people who would see it.”
Don’t forget that the show is open to the public again this weekend, 10am-1pm on Saturday and Sunday – it’s your last chance to see the paintings at the Albert Hall before the exhibition finishes on 17th March. All the details can be found here.
