Who's your favourite Beano character?

A crumpled can in an empty room


A crumpled tin can sits in the corner of a white, otherwise empty room. Some people may think someone has thrown some rubbish on the floor but it is a piece of art made to make people think. Why is there a can? What was in the can? Who had the contents of the can? Was the artist a cat, and trying to drop hints it is ALWAYS time for food? No-one can say for certain.

A sock nailed to a canvas

'The Odd Sock'

One of the biggest questions in life is, 'where do all the odd socks go?'. Up until now, no-one has been able to give the correct answer. This piece of art is the answer: here.

A framed close-up portrait of Gnasher

'Man's Best Friend'

This is a massive canvas portrait of the best dog in the world. Using only three colours, it is a bold reminder of why dog's are totally blam. Dogs are art. Art is a four-legged friend. And his name is Gnasher.

A pile of comics in an empty room

'Tower of Blam'

Yes, it's a pile of your favourite comic. But it's more than that. It's a pile of laughs, stories and memories. It's also a reminder that your bedroom shelf needs fixing. But for now, it is art.
