Artwork Description

Mixed Media on canvas, stretched and ready to hang.

Signed on the back.

Painted on a custom hand-stretched Swiss or Australian made canvas using spray cans and acrylics. Like all my canvas pieces, it comes ready to hang.

Sometimes even your best laid plans go astray - especially if you didn't factor in that one dude who swoops in out of left field to snatch defeat from victory. Imagine being a toxic-goo mutated teenage turtle who, after a hard night of fighting crime, retires to his home in the sewer with his bodacious buds for a well-earned pizza; when out of nowhere that bottomless pit of a stomach named Homer J Simpson gobbles up your extra large pepperoni without so much as a 'Cowabunga'!
Whoa, dude. Most certainly NOT cool.

Bursting with colour and created with an eye for precision, echoing the crisp and clean hand-drawn cartoon shows I fell in love with as a child. My art practice is centred on stirring nostalgia and memories of youth, reliving moments of a time when I had no responsibilities and my only expectation was to play and search out fun!
I hope to spark a little memory or feeling in you, maybe of Saturday mornings with a bowl of cereal in hand, and a weekend of endless possibilities ahead that only ended when the street lights came on.

I love creating smooth colour gradients with spray cans, reminiscent of the hand-painted backgrounds that made for such magical worlds before digital took over. I then obsess over painting solid, glossy colour fills with minimal evidence of brush strokes. The pieces are finally finished with painstakingly applied black outlines, thanks to a thin paintbrush, steady hand and meditative zen-like state!
Precision is important to me and so my pieces are produced to a high standard, including painted edges, so they can brighten your walls with or without a frame.

Perhaps you have a favourite childhood character or film that you would like as a part of your home or office? I love commissions and have created pieces for collectors all over the world that match my style to their most treasured nostalgia. I especially enjoy painting large scale as it plays well with spray paint and achieving that smooth finish!
All paintings are packed with the utmost care and sent fully insured.
Smiles and good vibes always,
Raf
