Meet artist Anna McKeown, whose clientele includes Tom Ford, Jo Malone, Mona Kattan, and more
Well-known entrepreneur Anna McKeown and artist behind ‘Pop & Toast’ has expanded her thriving art business and has relaunched her brand to the ‘Anna McKeown Collection’. The expansion comes three years after launching in Dubai and Ireland, with her artwork now shipped worldwide.
Originally creating ‘Pop and Toast’ in 2018, as a hobby outside of her full-time art-teaching role, McKeown’s artwork has become synonymous with its vibrant bottle prints and bright, colourful abstract magazine cover pieces, inevitably becoming well-known throughout the Middle East and beyond.
In addition to bottle prints, her celebratory-themed art portfolio now features luxury perfume prints, hand-painted custom design champagne bottles, bespoke commissioned art pieces, wallpaper and more – with brands such as Tom Ford, Chanel, and Jo Malone making an appearance.
McKeown has even commissioned artwork for many celebrities including a bespoke perfume bottle for Huda Kattan’s sister, Mona Kattan on the launch of her new fragrance ‘Kayali’, plus a custom ‘CleanCo’ bottle for reality TV couple Vogue & Spencer Mathews and their alcohol-free clean beverage line.
Three years since launching, McKeown, now a full-time artist, has rebranded to The Anna McKeown collection to offer all aspects of an art project from consultation to installation of high-end unique art for individuals, venues and businesses in residential and commercial spaces. Pop & Toast will still feature as a sub-arm of her brand, offering all the favourite ready-to-buy prints too.
She commented: “I enjoy creating artwork that brings vibrancy and energy to a room. The actual process of painting, the use of colour, the fluidity of the paint, the energy that I exert and the solitary nature of my practice, is central to the driving force behind my work. My neon undertones and ‘Pollock’ like splashes are a signature of my style. I believe my work is fashionable and symbolises a celebration or a moment in time. I love the idea that each bottle has a different meaning to every client.”
