28 April - 3 May
Orla Walsh is famed for the Ketchup Collection, which features the iconic Heinz bottle on a variety of quirky, colourful backgrounds, from Space Invaders, Doughnuts to Flying Toasters. Having tried to sell her first six ketchup paintings on the railings of St. Stephen's Green in Dublin a senior Heinz Executive spotted them, and within a week, Orla got a call from the Corporate Lawyer from Heinz Ireland, Richelle McMarthy, asking if Heinz could buy the stylised ketchup paintings for their World Head Quarters boardroom in Pittsburgh, where they still hang today.
Orla Walsh has gone on to create sought-after painting collections, regularly turning popular brands like Heinz Ketchup, Guinness, Tayto Crisps and Jacobs into iconic art images. Widely acclaimed for her quirky style and creative execution, Orla Walsh's paintings are included in many private Irish Art Collections, and her original work is stars to international sports stars around the globe.
