What could be cooler than 5 Elvises wearing multi colour jackets and huge 70s glasses from is Mug shot? Perhaps that its on a concrete base... :)
This industrial piece is coated with my new Concrete formula and troweled to a thickness of approx 10mm (including the edges). It weighs a little more than a standard canvas and all up is about 10kg. But the look on wall, is basically a 45mm thick "Slab". It is permanent and sticks like the proverbial.
It comes tackled and you can hang it as you would any normal canvas.
It took me 2 years to develop this process, and it achieves the ultimate in Industrial/street styling.
I have been a full-time artist for 10 years now, and feel blessed that I can do this wonderful thing for a job. In that time I have sold over 4000 pieces globally....and of course most of them have been at the larger end of the scale.
Did I mention I love commissions? So if you would like a similar piece to this one, different sizes, colours formats etc, just hit me up! Id love to hear what you have in mind.
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.
