Artwork Description

Acrylic Paint on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

New painting in my Monopoly series.

This one is based on one of the Community Chest cards, and the image makes me laugh. The Monopoly Man's greed knows no limit, social niceties be damned! He didn't become a millionaire by being polite.

I take popular imagery from classic sources and re-interpret it visually with expressive brushwork, thick layers of paint, splatters and drips. The text is often altered too, to give the paintings a new and often ironic or subversive message. The juxtaposition of classic imagery and unexpected text can be a source of humour and creates a nice dynamic.

This painting is on stretched canvas, with painted sides, and is ready to hang without needing to be framed. It has a gloss varnish and is signed on the back. The paint is richly textured and the brushwork of the background free and energetic (creating a counterpoint to the more rigid black lines of the figures).

A fun pop image that will look great in any room (perhaps at a debt collector's office!)
