Original artwork by Stuart Smith.

'Jetex Box' is part of the 'Collectibles' series inspired by old fashioned collectible objects.

This artwork is inspired by the "Jet Propelled Racing Car" toy box. The reverse side of the box has the “Fastest Car for it’s size in the World!” printed and is also the subject for Stuart's artwork 'Fastest Car' artwork. The colour-work and typeface of this image is screenprinted slightly offset creating simple overlaps and subtle hues of green. The strong full red colour allows others to be pushed close to primary strength and less concern for tone, enhancing the illusion and 3-dimensional quality of the box.

Toy boxes are a reoccurring theme in Stuart's work. He reminisces the prized value of his toys and the importance of keeping the toy box in mint condition as taught at a young age. The attention to detail in his artworks reflect the strict care that were to be taken with his toys. However with a youthful spirit, much like in his paintings, Stuart sees the playful qualities of the toy box as equal to the toy inside.

Stuart selects objects to paint, based on their charm or aesthetics. Through close investigation of these treasured objects, he creates paintings to scale, capturing the beautiful detail and craftsmanship of each object. This delightful artwork, takes on the charm and retro status of the carefully observed object.

A great artwork to share, collect and treasure!
