The London-based artist and graphic designer Little Fish Design creates playful ‘Pop-Surrealist’ artwork that is both quirky and humorous. The combination of elaborate portraits from the likes of Goya, Velázquez and Fragonard with disparate materials such as sweet wrappers and nostalgic packaging.Read more
This makes for a series of eclectic and entertaining compositions. We love the light-hearted amalgamation of the classical and contemporary, bringing together renaissance-inspired portraiture with advertising icons. Little Fish Design establishes a unique and witty relationship between ostentatious portraiture and mundane food packaging, creating a true blend of high and low art.
Little Fish Design has always admired the work of Robert Rauschenberg and Peter Blake and is inspired by the unconventional use of cultural references and commercialised products within their artworks. They take this inspiration as a starting point and play with it further by creating fantastical contemporary pastiches that appeal to the viewer’s sense of humour. The artist says their work developed partly through “growing up in an advertising family where I was always exposed to all sorts of art from a very young age”.
