A Bristol artist made an impression on the Oscars red carpet - although not in person.

A shirt being worn by James Ivory is one of Andrew Mania's creations. It was seen by millions as he picked up the award for best adapted screenplay for 'Call Me By Your Name'.

The 89-year-old film-maker - best known for A Room With A View and Howard's End - contacted the artist directly after seeing another of his designs.

It features Timothee Chalamet, one of the stars of 'Call Me By Your Name'.

Photographer Brian Cannon, who has created some of the most iconic album covers of the modern indie age, shot the photograph on a blisteringly hot Summer's day.

Taking to the band's Twitter page, Brian recalls the funny looks they received whilst filming as the Wonderwall singers were all dressed in duffle coats.

This was shot on Weston Super Mare beach in Somerset. Oasis were playing Glastonbury the following day so we had to find a location within striking distance. It was red hot & the band were sat in duffle coats, much to the interest of hundreds of onlookers.
