Wrestler And Budgies Paintings by Rhys Coren

Bristol-based artist Rhys Coren graduated in 2006 in Art and Visual Culture from the Bristol School of Art, Media and Design. He has developed a unique style using aspects of visual arts, sculpture, painting, writing poems and fanzines to recall and reminisce over memories of his own everyday experiences.

The pictures above are from his forthcoming show ‘After Newsround’ at the Old Shoreditch Station, London, UK and features paintings of his favorite after school heroes when he was a child.

I like the childishness and familiarity of his work. From his paintings of the five worst CD’s he’s ever bought, to a guide to spreading Marmite, the viewer can easily relate the work to their own lives, which makes it interesting to watch as well as rather amusing.
