The Irish Warhol

Orla Walsh is famed for the Ketchup Collection, which features the iconic Heinz bottle on a variety of quirky, colourful backgrounds, from Space Invaders, Donuts to Flying Toasters. Having tried to sell her first six ketchup paintings on the railings of St Stephens 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 McCarthy, asking if the Heinz could buy the stylised ketchup paintings for their World Head Quarters boardroom in Pittsburgh, where they still hang today.

I invite you to visit her webpage and see her supercool paintings!
