A celebration of silliness - Punny Food-Animal Illustrations by The Perky Painter at The Arch Cafe
Their simple, bold design plays on shape creating whimsical characters from familiar fruits and vegetables combined with animals. Adorably funny and good for you!
Original Characters created by the Perky Painter
The brightly coloured artwork of Leeds artist Helen Gibson, professionally known as The Perky Painter, is instantly recognisable. Helen crafts beautifully vibrant acrylic paintings and cheerful illustrations which are thoughtfully created into prints and gifts.
Helen’s unique prospective looks beyond the everyday into a vivid world of colour, texture and personality. Inspired by her love of animals and the world around her, the natural world features heavily in her work.
There is a consistent happiness to Helen’s bright, bold artwork, this continues in her imaginative character illustrations. Shaped through the visual equation of combining a simplified animal form with a familiar theme to create humorous characters (including the popular "Fruinimals").
Whether it be paintings or illustrated characters, the pleasure enjoyed when creating is unmistakable in Helen’s cheerful, contemporary artwork.
