Smile - Neon Yellow (hand painted)

Select Framing options

Back in ‘Lockdown 1’ during my single daily walk allowance (it’s still crazy to think that actually happened), it dawned on me as I passed someone on their regulated outing that I might be the only person they see today or maybe even longer. It was at that point the importance of a simple smile became apparent, not just as a casual greeting but as a means to pass on happiness when times were bleak. If my face was going to be the only face someone sees, then it’ll be a face that smiles at them - and smiles are infectious - the good kind of infectious. 

This piece has some really interesting interactions with how the hand-painted circle interacts with the screen printed typography. The gloss captures the paint strokes beautifully, displaying details that are unique to each individual piece.
