UNIQUE CITYSCAPE 6x6 Oil by TOM BROWN

Auction: CLICK HERE to bid.

This work of art will definitely be a conversation starter, as well as an interesting and unique piece of art I am sure you will enjoy for years to come. It was created by transforming an ordinary piece of used cardboard into a small cityscape to help us view our everyday surroundings in a new light.

The cardboard had been part of a shipping container. I applied oil paints directly onto surface to create the window and hanging plant, the cracked mortar showing the exposed bricks, and shadows and textures on various portions of the wall.

Large areas of the cardboard were left untouched. I wanted to deliberately include some of these existing marks and creased textures of the weathered cardboard to reflect the passage of time on the walls.

The numbers in the lower right area had been printed on the cardboard and I painted directly over them with oils to integrate them into the artwork and create a more cohesive overall image.

Packing tape along the bottom and lower left side add to the overall patina and interestingly varied surface texture of this delightful and truly unusual piece.

This piece is painted with genuine oil paints on a 6x6 inch piece of heavyweight corrugated cardboard. It is signed on the front in the lower right corner. It can be displayed on a tabletop easel or it will fit in a standard-sized 6x6 frame.
