Description

Painted on a heavily textured 140cm x 100cm funky Campbell's chicken noodle soup background is this Elizabeth Taylor piece that would look incredibly cool in any modern chic home or office.

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. It might be a cartoon character, or an advert or image that has been lost in a comic book from 50 years ago.....all the way across to fashion icons of our current times. In this case, I used Campbell's Soup cans.

Pop art without appropriation, fair use and the regurgitation of current and past concepts.....really doesn't exist without it. This goes across all forms of media and in art with all its various forms is as old as time itself...If you are a fan of popular culture, take a few minutes and google ”Everything is a remix” and watch the TED talk and other clips by Kirby Fergusson about Star Wars, Dylan, Kill Bill, Warhol etc etc..... I am so pleased someone has finally talked about this in detail and given in depth analysis and acknowledgement to this long running “debate” (of sorts).

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.

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

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 arrives ready to hang....stretched on a quality 40mm frame and of course free hugs and kisses! :)

I am a full time multi disciplinary artist working mostly in abstract paintings, Urban Pop Art and Industrial Style Art....almost always BIG and always textured. Texture is my “thing”. I have sold over 4000 pieces in my 7ish years as a full-time artist and have pieces scattered throughout some 30 countries world wide.

I take my depth of canvas to a different level believing a canvas has 5 sides, and should be created as such. :) and apply a triple gloss finish.

For international shipments, DHL is my carrier of choice.

Locally, it is generally TNT and Fastway.

I live to create art you will love!

Happy Trails!
Franko
