Bluethumb Top Selling Artist.

OLA spunky art lover! Thanks for looking in on this piece, “X's and O's.” This romantic piece features black, pink and and white oils, inks and acrylics on a textured and layered canvas base!

These uber cool “Urban Pop” pieces are created with layers and a low textured base to provide depth, so there is no mistaking this is an original painting and not a flat print. This painting will NEVER EVER be sold as a print. This painting has LIFE. They are often painted in a grungy manner to replicate something of an “urban” wall type look and often exhibit forms of Brandalism to give that laneway poster vibe. 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. This “noise” is also used for balance, layering and colour within the canvas.

Like all Pop art, my pieces will touch on “Popular Culture” and feature all kinds of things from our youth and experiences throughout 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 also be personalized more than any other Style.

Tools of creative choice are “hand and can”, using acrylics, sugar sprays and often incorporate multi piece detailed stencil work. A lot of time is spent on these!! Urban Pop Rules!

They are created on a 40mm frame wrapped in the highest quality canvas, with a triple varnish coat and gallery finished edges painted and finished as such. A “canvas” really has 5 faces. If this piece caught your eye but it’s not quite the right size or colours, or you would like something more personal, do reach out and let’s discuss possibilities.

Mumma Bear and spunky wife Wendy is CFO and big cheese. To add to the family vibe, since the world was rocked by covid, both of my offspring (Franksy and Franketta as I call them) have become fulltime understudies, having “helped out Dad” during their school years. Under my watchful eye, they are both now collaborating with me at the highest level.

Most paintings arrive ready to install with hardware installed on the rear. It is recommended 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. We have partners in most areas that can be recommended if you need help. If you would like more information, just ask away.

Serving Suggestions:
Provided with listings are some insitu images. We strive to ensure they are accurate in scale. Sometimes we will add an external frame to the painting insitu, to provide a vibe for how that would look also. As mentioned above, my pieces arrive ready to install with gallery finished edges and honestly, most people don’t add external framing. However, it is of course an option. If you have any questions, please let me know. We are here to help and want to make it as easy as possible for you if your décor aspirations require it.

Freight and delivery:
Global shipping is included in the listed prices however, if you happened to be in an extremely remote area or country, 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 and often felt, for rub protection. We are the consummate professionals in all that we do. Our trusted freight partners are TNT, TOLL and DHL. Often with larger pieces and local deliveries, we arrange direct delivery with our own driver.

Insurance and returns:
All paintings are sent fully insured and you have to love your art! If you don’t, do please reach out as I offer free returns.

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

Happy Trails!
