Little Lovers LGBT 2 is a mixed media installation piece with hand finished details from contemporary artist Roy's People. The piece is an original.

Urban artist Roy's People understands that it's the little things in life that count. His street-art-meets-photography aesthetic has captivated the contemporary art world with its fantastical use of hand-painted miniature figures: working little figurines into the classic square frame, the conventional print or canvas suddenly takes on a life of its own, creating three-dimensional, plastic snapshots.

For Little Lovers LGBT 2, a large, rainbow-striped, glittery heart dominates the white backdrop. Where the heart tapers, at the bottom of the frame, two tiny male figures stand arm-in-arm. There is playful humour in the piece - the tiny characters dwarfed by the enormous love-heart - yet Roy's People manages at once to capture something poignant through the work's beautiful celebration of LGBT love. With its clever use of depth perception and bold compositional technique, Little Lovers LGBT 2 is fun and fresh and compelling to behold.

Please note: figure's clothing colour may differ from image.

About The Artist - Roy's People

Roy’s People, also known as Roy Tyson, is an urban artist who photographs his charismatic miniature figures on the streets of London or in unconventional situations, and recreates miniature snapshots of everyday life and the art world. Roy handcrafts each figure by hand, with each miniature completely unique and with its own story to tell.

We love how Roy’s witty creations remind us that there is a whole new world beneath our feet if we remember to look, and there’s joy to be found in any mundane situation. The artist celebrates the little things in life, and says of his work: “I use everyday props and taxidermy to create a humorous scene designed to be fun and intriguing. All of the miniature figures are hand painted to give them personality and charm”.

After working in a variety of jobs - from mechanic to sales representative - Roy decided to focus on his hobby and became a full time artist. Since participating in his first exhibition Art of Curiosity at the Curious Duke Gallery in 2013, his career has gone from strength to strength. Roy has since worked on commissions for brands such as Apple, Ted Baker, Sea World, Zizzi and the Royal Mint. In 2014, Roy participated in a project with Big Issue where the artist hid 30 of his miniature figures around Covent Garden.

We’ve been working with Roy’s People since 2016.
