Our Shop Item of the Week features ‘Girl and Kitten‘ by Jim Feeney. This painting measures 50x60cm and can be purchased from our online shop for £190. ‘Girl and Kitten’ also includes, in addition to the girl and kitten, a large amount of graffiti on the Glasgow tenement wall. The picture initially looks like a scene from 1950’s or 60’s Glasgow, but upon closer inspection of the graffiti text it is evident that it is a reflection of Glasgow’s past and its present. The artist often uses graffiti as subject matter to express political views with a bit of humour, cynicism and nostalgia all rolled into one powerful little painting! Feeney recently had a series of paintings purchased by the NHS for display in their Glasgow offices, and he is currrently working on a new series of nostalgic Glasgow paintings. You can see more of Feeney’s work here. If you are interested in purchasing this oil painting on canvas, you can find it here online!
