Description

Pop art painting of the famous and beloved children's book 'The Cat in the Hat'.

This continues my method of taking popular imagery and transforming it with thick brushstrokes, distorted text, drips and spatters. The explosive treatment of the paint also references the controlled chaos of the classic story.

The surface of the painting is impasto, with a gloss varnish. Please note that the sides of the canvas are painted, and it is ready to hang without framing.

A colourful, energetic painting for an adult or child of any age!
