Okay, so I'm trying to find art to put up in my apartment. I've got a modern twist on shabby chic going on.
When I saw the pictures of the Custom Hotel in the blog that Alice posted
, I fell in love with the bedding with the anthropomorphic
I think these paintings by Thierry Poncelet are not only cute and whimsical, but really funny and great conversation pieces!
Are these paintings way cool and should I get some prints to put up in ornate frames in my place, or are these just creepy and wrong?
So- can I get these on my wall?
Artist: Thierry Poncelet
Profile: Born in Brussels, in 1946, Thierry Poncelet spent his childhood in Manche en Famenne, a small town in Belgium. At a young age, his grandmother, who was a well-known portrait painter, encouraged him to paint and draw. Thierry Poncelet is an entirely self-taught oil painter, although he studied drawing at St. Luc School. After his education, he spent a few years working for a picture restorer at the studio of a well-known painter, Max Massot. During this time, he learnt the technique of painting restoration. However, his love for painting soon outgrew his interest in restoration, and he decided to become a full-time oil painter, specialising particularly in whimsical dog portraits.
