L.A Days is the latest show by Norwich-based artist Ruth Knapp who is known for her bright colours, pop art imagery and her signature street art pineapples.

For this new exhibition - which runs until August 23 - she has taken as a starting point her 10-day trip to California earlier this year and mixed in influences from the David Hockney retrospective at Tate Britain which inspired her desire to paint - and to paint big.

'I found Los Angeles such an exciting city and I wanted to share that energy with Norwich, so this exhibition came at a perfect time for me, I was feeling very inspired and ready to take my work in a new direction,' she said.

L.A Days is at Norwich Arts Centre until August 23. Opening times are Monday to Friday 1pm-5pm and Saturday 10am-6pm. Entry is free. For more information, visit www.norwichartscentre.co.uk
