Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Spray Paint on Cardboard, Paper, Carbon Fibre.

Two paintings for the price of one!

These are not prints as each is individually done and signed to order and consequently vary a little from the illustrated picture. These paintings are sprayed onto plain paper (approx. 56x76cm) and are ready to hang with crossbars and nails.

"Paintings by the great masters can be prohibitively expensive. So I am re-doing some of them as spray stencils which make them a good bit cheaper. This one by Mondrian is worth about £20 million.” - Sly

It is likely that Juan Sly has become the biggest seller of original artworks in the UK. An artist exhibiting in mainly spray stencils and oils. He has exhibited at the Saatchi (a proper gallery with pillars and everything!) alongside the likes of Banksy, Terry O'Neil, Tracy Emin and Vic Reeves and now has a permanent collections in Germany, Detroit and Uk, alongside Damien Hirst and some other artists you might have heard of plus private collections around the globe. His works rock from humour to anti-war, sex to surreal. Particularly fond of the stencil medium as it allows him to quickly respond to events and ideas and gives the work that gritty illegal look. The stencils naturally allow the works to be re-sprayed and so become affordable and disposable. He likes the fact that people can buy art that they like and not to show off how much they can afford. You can find them in bedsits, legal offices in the Temple or stuck to a fence in Bristol.
