This piece is 20x 16” (50 x 40cm) and is oil on board. I am also in the process of painting a smaller piece in similar vein. Same background but the blonde is walking away, swigging from her Coke bottle. More of that later, hopefully. I have been painting on deep canvasses recently which do not need framing, but sometimes a white modern tray frame can really add to an artwork, hence these new paintings on board. I have a great local framer and he and I are coming up with some great ideas.
This piece is inspired by the Street art of @brknwrld who I came across on Instagram. His work is eye catching and thought provoking and I have his permission to use this one street art as a background to my trademark woman.
I liked the idea of the Molotov cocktails being served up by a masked waiter. My cool blonde is raising her Coke to him, almost high fiveing him. Why not?
The thinking behind my art at the moment is that the 3 dimensional woman changes the dynamics of the 2 dimensional street art on the wall, bringing art to life and vice versa. A theme I want to pursue long term.
