The first limited edition release in the ever popular Charlie series and it all began with ‘Streetwise Charlie’ way back in 2010.
Humorous and thought provoking, it stops and makes you think about the welfare of the animal and its species. It is up to you, the viewer, to interpret the meaning of the empty beer cans and fagbutts that often appear within the imagery.
This limited edition is not just a notorious member of the Paul James Collection – it is an iconic piece for our Paul James Collectors as the limited edition of ‘Streetwise Charlie’ is incredibly sought after and sold out.
Paul’s urban collection was inspired from his occasional days in search of inspiration and creativity surrounded by nature spent on his narrowboat ‘Fools Paradise?’ when he saw various waterfowl living as much within city and town landscapes as the countryside.
In earlier works, he was very much influenced by the graffiti that he saw and the juxtaposition between the wildlife and the urban, but as time has progressed, he’s developed his own content and style. Unlike actual spray-painted graffiti, he uses traditional painting techniques to make it look as though the writing has been sprayed upon the wall.
We often joke in the gallery that Charlie is a bit like a human with different moods and states of mind. One minute he is ‘Discerning’, then ‘Philosophical’, then under the influence of ‘Champagne’ and other times he is quite happy to jump up and down in a puddle as seen in ‘Puddle Town’ Charlie – all of the artworks mentioned are available as limited editions as Charlie has become quite a star and has been featured in at least 10 of Paul’s artworks over the years…
Sorry! This particular limited edition is now SOLD OUT, but we might be able to help…
