Artist's description:

The latest in my pop art food series is this painting of two iconic sweets from my youth - the Fruit Salad and the Black Jack. You can still buy them today - I found some to photograph next to the painting - but the packaging has changed from the era I modelled this painting on. I'm really inspired by retro food packaging and have a huge sweet tooth myself.

The Fruit Salad is a wrapped raspberry and pineapple flavour chew, while the black jack is a type of aniseed flavour chew. They're made by Barratts in the UK and they're usually sold together, which is why I pictured them like this.

I love painting food stuffs in a graphic, pop art way, making the items become almost abstract in appearance. The end result is a bold, bright, and original painting that would brighten up any home, or be the perfect gift for anyone else with a sweet tooth!

It is painted in acrylic paint and Posca pens on stretched cotton canvas.
Size -
10 inches x 12 inches
25.5 cm x 30.5 cm
Roughly 0.7 inch or 1.5 cm thick.

I've been inspired to create work like this by classic pop artists like Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Patrick Caulfield.

Postage will be first class in a cardboard envelope.

I can also do paintings to order.
