Monkey Modern at the Flying Pony

monkey-modern
There’s a new art show up at my favourite café. Like the show that preceded it, this one is colourful, well executed and light-hearted. Rob Elliott’s monkeys are acrylic originals on canvas… small ones and larger ones.

“I’m not afraid of colour”, proprietor/artist Andrew Horne said to us one day. His own work is similarly bright and you can see the paint job on the café exterior. Andrew brews good coffee, too, and sells fresh-daily baked goods made on the premises.

Getting into the spirit of Diwali, Andrew adapted his place to the Little India strip by erecting a driftwood sculpture, cleverly tied together with big zip ties. You can see how he added colour. There are red and blue bulbs for night time. Festival of Lights, you know.
