Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed with a certificate of authenticity.

Bluethumb 2019 Top Selling Artist. Another awesome heroic urban pop piece of none other than 'Rosie the Riveter'! Created on a textured and layered linen canvas with red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, white, black, grey, cream and metallic gold acrylics, inks and sugar sprays!

I create all of my “Urban Pop” pieces with a partial textured base and in a grungy manner to replicate something of an “urban” wall type look. I use some forms of Brandalism to replicate advertising on walls. Throughout 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 outright pulling the other leg. I use a lot 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, my Frankos touch on “Popular Culture” and feature all kinds of things from our youths and experiences thru out life, to 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. They can be personalized more than any other style I work in.

These pieces are created by hand and can, using acrylics, sugar sprays and often incorporate 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!

Like my other styles, they are created on a 40mm frame wrapped in linen, with a gloss coat of varnish and gallery finished edges. I take my depth of canvas to a different level believing a canvas has 5 sides and should be painted and finished as such. 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! I’d love to hear what you have in mind.

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 now sold over 5000 pieces globally, with pieces in collections in some 30 countries...and of course most of them have been at the larger end of the scale.

My spunky wife Wendy is CFO and runs a lot of the “day to days” including logistics, leaving me to answer enquiries and do that other important part.....painting!

Finishing:
Most of my paintings arrive ready to hang. I do recommend that the really really big ones, some of the heavier pieces and some of the specialist pieces, such as pallets be installed by a professional hanger. This is cheaper than you may think and would be in the $150 to $250 range. I have partners in most areas that I can recommend if you need help. If you would like more information, just ask away. Wendy & I want to make it as easy as possible for you.

Freight and delivery:
Global shipping is included in the listed prices however, if you happened to be in an extremely remote area, we may put our hand up and ask for a little bit of monetary assistance. We package the paintings securely in twin walled, reinforced, CUSTOM MADE “Franko” cartons, with additional protective inserts & of course the painting is wrapped in bubble wrap for rub protection. Wendy & I are the consummate professionals in all that we do. Our trusted freight partners are TNT, Fastway and DHL. Often with larger pieces and local deliveries, we arrange direct delivery with our own driver.

Insurance:
All paintings are sent fully insured.

Finally, all works come with a Certificate of Authenticity and free hugs and kisses!

Happy Trails!
Franko
