Artist Karl Rudziak has teamed up with Portsmouth City Council to share his work with the community.

The paintings, entitled ‘John Anthony Portsmouth Football Club Westwood’ and ‘The World Peace Activist’ are on display at Somerstown Central Café in the Community Hub over Winston Churchill Avenue until December.

Karl’s portrait of Pompey superfan John Westwood won the Portsmouth art competition and was displayed as part of the BP Portrait Award exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery in 2009.

Somerstown housing office’s customer relations officer Ryan Harris said: ‘We hope that this will be the first of many exhibitions.

‘They are fantastic, I thought they were photos.’
