Hand painting on reused London bus panel

50 x 32cm

Hand signed unique work

Paint on panel from disused London bus.

Javier Mayoral paints acrylic paintings and collages with sharp humour and colour. His witty and minimal scenes often depict a disjointed and meme-like scenario, captioned by simple phrases or descriptions. A woman drinking whiskey and smoking a joint says "fuck this shit." It is fun and to the point, glittering the internet with digestible works of art. The frequency at which he paints on small wood blocks has allowed him to amass nearly three-hundred thousand followers on Instagram, letting him to paint full time. His advertising background shines through the way in which Mayoral is able to scream an unclear point in one or two figures atop a undefined backdrop. Through deadpan humour, Mayoral reveals the standard machinations of the human mind, thought processes and scenarios that might have felt isolated before coming across his work. At the scale in which he paints, his formula is sure to hit on a relatable gesture reminding you that you aren't alone in this world. He has painted over 9000 original paintings in this format and sells his work in the form of posters, t-shirts, and original prints.

Framing: In order to ensure the most economical shipping and environmental cost, we send our art to the customer unframed. However, for the best presentation of the bus panels we suggest it is framed upon arrival. We advise that the piece floats in a the middle of a black frame without glass, hung at eye level. 

Popcorn bidding: If a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of the auction, the closing time will be automatically extended for an additional five minutes from the time the last bid was placed. The item will close once all bidding activity has stopped. This is recommended for high-value and popular items. Popcorn bidding prevents bidders from waiting until the last minute to bid without giving the bidders who were outbid an opportunity to rebid.

VAT: Standard rate item. VAT @ 20% added to bid (hammer) price if the winning bidder is based in the UK or Europe. A buyer's invoice will show the hammer price (bid price) of the lots bought and VAT will be charged separately.
