IS IT A FISH ?

KING PRAWN 09/40 (2009) acrylic on canvas
40cm x 40cm
£ 90.00 GBP (p&p inc) see below
Due to some technical difficulties this is one of the paintings bound for the Gallery Guesthouse here in Plymouth - it will be delivered next Monday. Karen asked me to produce paintings with local Plymouth / Devon themes. Hopefully people familiar with Plymouth and the Barbican will recognise this - except "the prawn" as it is known here is actually coppery in colour. I liked the idea of taking the prawn and cooking it - there should be enough here for a few thousand people.
The price for this is as above (outside of the UK we would need to come to agreement for shipping cost) - but I would need to discuss with the guesthouse first as it's going to be part of their new exhibition.

  1. I'm not sure but it looks like one!
    It's very "interesting"

  2. Hey Steve - great rendering of the Barbican Prawn, and love your choice of the cooked colour, hehe!

    Two or three years ago I canvassed opinion amongst the local shop-keepers and most really disliked it - I wonder if that's changed, now?

    Cheers,
    Mark

  3. Lazyking - you've summed up the ambivalence that Mark so rightly points out - personally I love the thing and I think there is a definite love/hate relationship with this piece of public art -

    For non Plymouth readers - here's a link to the real thing :
