Marilyn... Beautiful Disaster 113cm x 113cm Marilyn Monroe Industrial Recycled Palette Pop Art Painting

This totally funky piece features white, grey, black, blue, red and pink sugar sprays and inks! These recycled timber paintings are probably the most satisfying pieces to do! I feel like I am turning trash to jewels with a bit of elbow grease here, the odd fire there, some laser engraving and a little paint. And this is what comes out the other end.

I will normally use 2 Pallets for a piece like this. I'll select the best pieces (not too good of course!) take out and later reuse all the rusty weathered nails. Join all pieces together, fill the gaps and big flaws with wood filler, burnt it (for those beautiful wood tones... you cant get them Unless you actually set it on fire!!) then sand it, engrave it, and finally paint it!

These wooden based pieces are always recycled and up cycled palettes, doors or timber signs. I will always seek to provide a suitable, grungy and raw base to work on. These pieces are unique and a prized part of what I do.

Did I mention I love commissions? So, if you would like a similar piece to this one, different sizes, colours formats etc, just hit me up! I’d love to hear what you have in mind.

I have been a full-time artist for 10 years now and feel blessed that I can do this wonderful thing for a job. In that time, I have now sold over 5000 pieces globally, with pieces in collections in some 30 countries... and of course most of them have been at the larger end of the scale.

My spunky wife Wendy is CFO and runs a lot of the “day to days” including logistics, leaving me to answer enquiries and do that other important part..... painting!

Most of my paintings arrive ready to hang. I do recommend that the really really big ones, some of the heavier pieces and some of the specialist pieces, such as pallets be installed by a professional hanger. This is cheaper than you may think and would be in the $150 to $250 range. I have partners in most areas that I can recommend if you need help. If you would like more information, just ask away. Wendy & I want to make it as easy as possible for you.
