Are you looking to inject a touch of sweetness into a nursery or children’s room?
Anyone with a little nostalgia for the sweets of their childhood (or even just sweets in general) will find it hard to go past these gorgeous prints from Joel Penkman. The artist hails from Northern England, and the influences of traditional British lollies and treats (golden syrup, Blackpool rock, jam tarts) have obviously stayed with him into adulthood!
Kids are sure to love them too – who wouldn’t love to see such yummy treats on the walls every day? Of course, we can’t vouch for their effect on the demands for doughnuts and ice creams in your house!
What are giclee prints exactly? Basically, the term giclee refers to printing process – they are essentially digital prints made with special light-fast inks, on very large inkjet printers. The print quality is great, and if you keep them out of the sun, they shouldn’t fade at all for at least twenty-five years. They are now a commonly used way of reproducing original artworks just like these ones.
The prints at Joel Penkman’s store are mainly limited editions, in varying sizes, with prices from US$40 to US$90. They are unframed. The artist is also happy to take commissions, if you have an idea for something you’d like. Check out all the options at Joel Penkman.
