This artwork is sold framed

A delightful and thought-provoking piece of pop art that cleverly juxtaposes the iconic character Pinocchio with a headline from a newspaper article titled “Age of Optimism.” Crafted using acrylic on newsprint, this artwork presents a humorous and intriguing commentary on the theme of optimism.

In this painting, Pinocchio takes centre stage, and his classic appearance is instantly recognisable: wooden limbs, a red cap, and a cheerful expression. He stands beside the newspaper article, playfully pointing at it with a wide, toothy smile. This juxtaposition between Pinocchio and the headline creates a witty and thought-provoking dynamic.

The humour in this artwork stems from the inherent irony of Pinocchio, a character known for his comically long nose that grows when he tells lies, being associated with the concept of optimism. The contrast between his characteristic falsehoods and the idea of an “Age of Optimism” in the news article adds depth to the piece.

All art is packaged professionnally in boxes or cardboard packaging.
