Dave Pop! serves up ‘Seaside Sauce’

Jaq Bayles August 17, 2021

Artist Dave Pop! has a new exhibition at the Fishing Quarter Gallery from August 18 – 24.

Seaside Sauce is based on Dave’s love of the fairground art found on Brighton’s pier and seafront.

Dave, who has lived in Brighton for more than 25 years, says: “With swirling Baroque scrolls, fancy lettering, decorative sashes and dynamic colours made to lure customers to spend their money on thrills and spills, pleasures and delights, this is a very early form of Pop art.

“Mix in some risqué humour from saucy seaside postcards and Carry On films, and we have perfect Brighton Pop Art inspiration.”

Entry to Seaside Sauce is free and the gallery on the seafront is open from 9am-5pm.
