“Wonky Droitwich” Returns!

Rosie Philpott first burst onto the local art scene in 2012 with her ‘Wonky Droitwich’ painting, depicting Droitwich Spa’s High Street in a quirky style. Since then the original and a limited number of 250 prints have completely sold out and fans of Rosie’s work have been requesting another version!

“Wonky Droitwich 1938”

The new painting, “Wonky Droitwich 1938” sets the familiar view of the wobbly High Street in the year 1938, bringing a vintage twist to the original.

Rosie explains “I had great fun using our local library to research the shops and owners along the street in 1938 and was surprised by the number of butchers and grocers that existed. I even discovered what a ‘grindery’ and ‘fancy repository’ are. I knew I had to change the painting from the original but keep the same feel, and, as a lover of all things vintage and retro, this seemed the perfect choice”.

Rosie Philpott at Park’s Café

Rosie Philpott, a local artist known for her ‘wonky’ paintings, has recently donned the walls of a local café with her artwork. The exhibition will be held at Park’s Café in Droitwich throughout the month of February, where Rosie has both prints and originals on display. Her paintings of local views, such as “Wonky Droitwich”, have proven extremely popular with their local characters and quirky style.

Rosie said: “I enjoy working in watercolour and fine line pen, exaggerating the scenes I see around me. It is rare that I get a chance to show my originals as they are usually already spoken for so it’s exciting that I get to show to a wider public.”

The exhibition is a scheme devised by the Droitwich Arts Network, where members can display their work for free at local venues. A different artist is given a chance to display their work each month.
