You, Me & Northland “Favourite Art”  *** Soju Shots ***

…and suddenly – I have a new favorite artist!

I have always been a big fantasy art fan. Frank Frazetta, Boris Vallejo, Chris Archilleos – all big international artists laying down their weird and wonderful imaginings onto canvas. But today I met a Whangarei guy, in a Whangarei studio who really impressed me.

Evan “Soju Shots” Heasman has a tiny upstairs workshop in Walton street, open most Wednesdays and Thursdays, where you can come in and see his many prints and have a good ol chat with him about his fantastical fairy-tale motifs and the real life stories that inspired them.

What impressed me about his art, is that it has the “feel-good factor”. It’s up-beat, simple, endearing, and soulful…and best of all – affordable! I think I am about to become a collector!



Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
