Spray-paint & scratched calligraphy on reclaimed relic - Hand signed - 2020

Spray paint & scratched calligraphy on kitsch relic. The frame has been spray-painted black, green and orange by Hoodkitsch, with a fade effect.
Total dimensions (frame): 20 x 16 x 4 cm (ready to hang).

Hoodkitsch works on discarded or old fashioned paintings / prints. He finds, buys and / or reclaims these wherever he can find them. He "tags" them with whatever comes to mind, with often an ironic or satirical connotation. Sometimes there is no direct relation between the existing kitsch artwork so that the word / title gets highlighted even more.

All original tags, calligraphy and / or images are painted onto existing kitsch artwork. These are often imperfect or even damaged (chips off of frames or even cuts in the canvas). These are all part of reclaiming and bringing the 'out-of-fashion' artworks back to life. It is part of the charm and character of Hoodkitsch' work. Please look carefully at the photos. Small detail: notice the 'powder' under the boys nose.

About Hoodkitsch:
He is a Maastricht (NL) based street art painter who started taking his 90's street work into the studio at the beginning of 2010's. In 2016 Hubert Kalkman and him started working together. Many successful endeavors have followed, such as his sold out exhibition "Take Me To Church" in 2017 (last photo), a 55 piece commission for a hotel in Amsterdam (2019) and selling out his collection at AAF Amsterdam in 2019.

The artwork will be carefully packed and shipped worldwide.
