ICE CREAM THROWER by Hanh x heART Editions for Sept 19 Release
heART editions generously shares with us images & info of their latest resin sculpture release ‘Ice-Cream Thrower’ by Indonesian urban artist Hanh! A masked Ronald lobbing ice-cream at unsuspecting citizens? Sounds about right, innit? LOL
ARTIST: "Known for mashing up pop and cultural icons in his works, this latest work serves as a social commentary on the modern society's fascination with consumerism, and invites the viewer to question himself on when more is really more."
Sized 45 x 36 x 18cm (WxDxH) each, and limited to 20 pieces signed with COA/“Certificate of Authenticity” for each of the Black & White (above) and Standard (below) versions, the sculpture is available for purchase on 19th Sept 2017 for US$600 (+ $70 global shipping) directly from HeART Editions.
If you follow your Urban Art knowledge of the current millennium, you’d recognise the by-now-infamous pose of the protester, from Banksy’s depiction of a bouquet of flowers ready to be thrown, versus the molotov cocktail of the “real world protester”. And while Ronald the Clown is not throwing a “burger”, an “ice cream cone” instead offers up more fun and less incriminating, IMHO. I'M LIKING IT! :)
