Art of the Day: "Fab Ice Lolly Pop Art Painting With Sprinkles, Original Acrylic Painting On Canvas, 2014" by Ian Viggars

“I was inspired to paint this simply out of love for the Fab ice lolly. They remind me of childhood summers, but since I started creating paintings inspired by food I appreciated how well designed Fab lollies are too. I brought a canvas that mimicked the shape of the lolly and broke it up into three blocks - strawberry, vanilla, and the chocolate section covered in ‘hundreds and thousands’. I feel that even if you don't know what a Fab lolly is you could still appreciate the painting as a work of abstract design, but if you do then it becomes more of an art object than a simple representative painting, as the design continues around the edge.”
