"monkey funk" is a colorful eye-catching panel bursting with energy. The central blue monkey figure is inspired by street art and pop art. Striking patterns in purples, oranges, grays, blues and pinks radiate from the figure. Confident semi-gloss black lines define the facial features, outline, and harness the composition.
This unique original painting on canvas is sure to be a focal point. It is thoroughly fun and contemporary. The image is painted in acrylic with tight detail and care on a quality gallery wrapped canvas with 3/4" stretcher bars. The patterns continue over the edges of the painting so there is no need for framing. The painting includes a hang-wire and is ready to hang.
