Artist's description:

When I was really young I couldn't understand why I couldn't just have sweets for dinner. They were about the same size and similar colours to vegetables? Now I'm older and I know the truth, but I still have a huge sweet tooth and love retro sweets.

So as a result of this the latest in my series of pop art food paintings on high quality paper is a selection of various vegetables clashing with some bright sweets and candies. The text in the middle says 'vegetables vs. sweets' to highlight the eternal struggle.

I love painting food in a graphic, pop art way so that the items become abstract and pattern-like. The end result is a bold, bright, and original painting that would brighten up any home.

It is painted in acrylics on thick high quality A4 paper. PLEASE NOTE: the painting doesn't come framed, but I've taken photos of it in a black A4 frame for display purposes.
Size -
8.3 inches x 11.7 inches
21 cm x 29 cm
Roughly 1 inch or 2 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 and the painting will be wrapped in plastic.

I can also do paintings to order.
