Artist's description:

The Utopia series is a bright and colourful series of paintings with more than a nod to pop art. Inspired by a fusion of the masters of pop art James Rosenquist, Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol and the graffiti style of Jean-Michel Basquiat and David Carson. It features the recognisable iconic items from the later half of the 20th century and blends them in with distressed graffiti-like layers.

This painting is the first in a series of paintings I am making, it is a considerable change in my recent style of paintings and is a return to a style of work I was making almost 20 years ago. While doing my MA in creative multimedia I focused on creating digital fine art and discovered a sheer delight in digital collage. This is a return to that aesthetic but in a painted form rather than a digital one. I have unleashed my inner control freak recently in my return to printmaking and now it is back in the driving seat!

The canvases I use are personally stretched by me using a high quality heavy weight cotton canvas, which then is primed with three coats of gesso. This ensures a more substantial and durable canvas stretcher than the off the shelf canvases. I use high quality artist materials to paint with and once a painting is complete I add a coat or two of UV varnish to protect the artwork against UV light and dust.

Acrylic paint and mixed media on stretched canvas.

All canvases are fitted with sawtooth hangers to enable easy hanging (shown in image).

All paintings are packed very carefully in cardboard boxes (recycled where possible) with generous layers of bubble wrap to protect them.
