About Bad Painting

'Bad Painting' comprises faux-naïf style artworks addressing real human atrocities, each featuring a descriptive text sourced from various headlines. Painted on canvases approximately laptop screen-sized, they employ bold brushstrokes to convey immediacy. Despite potentially discomforting content, they serve as vital records of humanity's darker aspects in the contemporary era. In today's turbulent world, with shifting societal norms, moral values, and political ideologies, their relevance, especially its textual component, is amplified, capturing the zeitgeist and reflecting societal shifts.

Importantly, each "Bad Painting" is not only a visual but also a linguistic entity. The incorporated texts, constructed from various headlines related to specific events, are an integral part of each work. Through this fusion of image and text, I invite viewers to delve not only visually but also linguistically into the deep corners of our collective reality.


Important information for potential buyers

Bad Painting transcends individual pieces; it's a unified corpus. As such, I'm hesitant to sell paintings individually. Specifically, I envision sets of 100 paintings (size 22.7cm x 30.5cm paintings) as more or less cohesive works. Consequently, starting from June 2024, I'll only offer Bad Paintings in batches of 100. Each batch, priced at £400,000, allows interested parties to select the paintings they wish to include.
