So this painting inspired me to find out the artist and check out some of his other work. I had a good feeling I wouldn't be disappointed.
This is Tristan Pigott, a London based artist, exploring human characteristics in the present day, primarily using fashion to communicate this, and depicted with a sense of surrealism, proportion and humor. Basically, I love it.
"It’s important to me that my paintings are personal, even when I’m exploring something that can be as transparent as a person’s socially constructed front, such as their fashion, or the clothes they wear. The way I make them personal is by carefully selecting the models I choose to paint, whether they are friends or family. I aim to create ambiguous work, which draws the viewer in, allowing them to spend time working out the different connotations of the surreal narratives I've created."
