"I like painting the heart throb sweet for Art on a Postcard, I use it as a symbol of life and living. I often paint sweets, they are a vehicle for me to paint many different forms, shapes, textures and colours. Sweet love oil painting, explores cultural imagery and is a reaction to our current circumstances. When the threat of loss is so close, love for the important people in our lives is intensified.
Bum Shot and Pink Bum Shot Mini limited edition prints explore themes of empowerment, having faith, strength and courage in the face of adversity. A nod to this unprecedented pandemic and the challenges we have all faced during lockdown and a celebration of my curatorial debut ‘The Most Powerful Woman In The Universe’ which was held at Gallery 46 in Whitechapel last year."
A young British artist, painter and feminist, Kelly-Anne Davitt was selected by the National Portrait Gallery to exhibit in the BP Portrait Awards, immediately after graduating from London Guildhall University with a degree in Fine Art.
Kelly has had solo shows: Beach Balls & Melons at Dadiani Fine Art, Cork Street and Feel Good at Blacks, Soho. She has also exhibited her work at Faggionato Fine Arts, Colony Room Club, Gallery 46, The Laurence Stern Trust, Art Car Boot Fair, Zoo Art Fair, Trolley Gallery, Outside World Gallery and Lights of Soho.
Through her oil paintings exploring the hyper-sexual images of women found online and within media, rendered realistically and with playful pop tones, Kelly achieves a contemporary approach and attitude to the time-honoured female nude. She also uses light text sculpture to re-enforce the ideas within her paintings. Taking text that amuses and outrages her from tabloids and magazines and re-appropriating them to illuminate the ridiculous, absurd and humorous. These themes remain dominant in Kelly’s work. She currently lives and works in London.
