The ‘Frwyth y Môr’ ‘Fruits de Mer’ or ‘Fruits of the Sea’ poster features 31 different species found at the varying depth that they inhabit in the North Wales sea. The original was created using acrylic paint and pen and measured (roughly) 17.50 x 25inches the labels were added afterwards by Mr Tom Pollock of Excellent Creative Design.
The poster completed it was unveiled as a 7 foot (at a guess) tall display at this year’s Menai Seafood Festival an annual event that celebrates North Wales' coastal heritage. Coinciding with Anglesey Marine Week 2015 that promotes the rich wildlife and heritage of Anglesey’s coastal waters the event showcases the best seafood and fish available around the shores of Anglesey with a local produce market and exhibitors, cooking demonstrations, art and craft and live music. I went along to see it for myself and see how the poster was received.
