    These are really interesting paintings. They look like plasticine mouldings. It’s really cool to see something different. They appear to be inspired by children’s toys or just children in general. The first and last paintings are sort of child-like and almost Picasso-esk. I love the simplicity of the idea but the detail of the paint to give such an effect.
