About 'Potato Pride' by Alexis
Potato Pride is a true Queer collaboration. I drew the original outline and my girlfriend (Chloe) coloured in the painting. We hid loads of wonderful details in this image: notice the colours of the Irish flag on the shoulder, the most up to date Pride flag is on the torso, and the signatures of Chloe and I is near the legs.
The painting is after Gustav Klimt's 'The Kiss' (1907) but the potato heads reference an iconic photograph 'V-J Day' by Alfred Eisenstaedt (14th April,1945).
As we design, printed and framed the images in our studio, we like to say that when you buy a print of Potato Pride, 100% of the profits go to Queers!
