Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

Bluethumb 2019 Top Selling Artist. When I was a boy....the first ever Pinnie I played was the original "Playboy" machine. It was at the fish and chip shop near my Nannas house at Lemon Tree Passage Circa 1970 something. This was the glass art for that classic and its morphed into one of my Fav all time Urban Poppers...and its huge at 150x150

Its long been said that someone passing away "they are in a better place". For Hugh, this totally untrue! :)

I create all of my “Urban Pop” pieces with a partial textured base, and in a grungy manner to replicate something of a wall type look. I use some forms of Brandalism once again to replicate advertising on walls. Thruout these pieces you will see disingenuous tags like “Genuine Romance” “ 1800-True Love” “Never seen before” “This will change your life” “Genuine Taste” etc etc to poke a bit of fun at the constant bombardment we all get of things that are bordering on truth and can be a bit disingenuous. I use alot of this for balance, layering and colour within the canvas as well. Layering is an integral part of all of my art, be it abstracts, Abstract Realism, Book clubs or Urban Pop. Layers give depth.

Like all Pop art, it touches on “Popular Culture” and will feature all kinds of things from our youths and experiences thruout life,and the things we buy, watch, love and feel.

These pieces are intended to be nothing too serious..... a bit sexy sometimes, a bit naughty, a bit of fun and hopefully a few memories.

Pieces are created by hand and can, using acrylics, sugar sprays and often multi piece detailed stencil work. I spend ALOT of time on these!! But they take me back to my graphics roots. I LOVE my urban pop!

This painting, like all of my pieces, arrives stretched, ready to hang on a quality 40mm frame, with a triple gloss coat and gallery finished edges (there is stuff along the edges also). I take my depth of canvas to a different level believing a canvas has 5 sides, and should be painted as such. :)

I package my art securely in twin walled cartons, with inserted protective layering and of course the painting is wrapped in Bubble wrap.

All art from Franklin Art Studio comes with a certificate of authenticity and free hugs and kisses! Smile

Happy Trails!
