A joyful new body of work showing 'optimism for life and love for the family,' will be revealed at Castle Gallery on Saturday (July 25).

The new collection, For Your Good Heart, comes from the vision and brushes of renowned artist Paul Horton, and he will be stopping by the gallery – at thecentre:mk – for Saturday's launch.

Horton has spent more than a decade as a successful painter, and his work has seen his ranking reach ever higher – he is now one of the most popular contemporary artists in the UK, with his playful signature style widely recognised not just as art, but as a visual collection of memories, values and traditions.

Art is my life. I feel that I am on a journey, a crusade creating new and exciting images, with diverse influences,” Paul said.

With my artwork, I am able to offer the gift of happiness where the spirit of love is imbued in everything and each painting has its own special ambience.

I love meeting people on a one to one basis and am looking forward to talking about my art and sharing my inspiration and experience,” he added.

Paul will be in the store between 12.30pm and 3.30pm.

Speaking of the visit, Castle Galleries manager Pete Viet Lu said: “Paul's work is instantly recognisable and the fun and colourful nature of the pieces can be appreciated by all ages.

His work has been a long-standing bestseller for us, and we are honoured to be able to celebrate his achievements, career and the launch of his new collection here at the gallery,” he added.
