Castle Gallery welcomes renowned artist Paul Horton this weekend, to launch a new collection of his work, For Your Good Heart.

Paul has spent more than a decade colouring up canvasses with his contemporary pieces.

And this new body of creativity has optimism for life, and love of the family at its heart.

His fans will be rewarded with homely scenes – showing the house as a symbol of love and the family, a protector and sanctuary from the world outside; the road as a metaphor for the journey of life; andScruff the dog makes an appearance too.

Horton fans will be familiar with the cute canine already – he regularly crops up in his portfolio.

The new exhibition will feature original pieces, signed limited edition prints and an exclusive showpiece, available only for the duration of his visit – between 12.30pm and 3.30pm on Saturday.

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

“With my artwork, I aim 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.”

Pete Viet Lu, manager of Castle gallery in Milton Keynes, is thrilled to be welcoming Paul this weekend.

“Paul’s work is instantly recognisable and the fun and colourful nature of the pieces can be appreciated by all ages,” he said.

“His work has been a long-standing best-seller 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.

“The ‘meet the artist’ event is an ideal opportunity to talk to Paul and hear first-hand about the stories behind his pieces.”

For Your Good Heart will be on display at thecentre:mk retailer until August 9.
