Notes


English comedian, painter and television presenter, Joe Lycett is one of Britain's most popular, and queer, comedians.

We thought we’d let Joe describe this work himself: “This piece of art, which I have personally created with my own fists, stands out as a particularly remarkable painting that skillfully captures the essence of flowers. However, this is no ordinary floral representation like you might get from Monet, Georgia O'Keeffe or Bob Ross. Each flower depicted in this artwork carries an unconventional twist, because over each one I've written the word 'slag.' This term, often used colloquially, here playfully contrasts with the traditional beauty and delicacy associated with flowers, introducing a layer of irony and critique. Through this unique juxtaposition, the painting invites viewers to reconsider their perceptions of beauty and value, and of slags.”
