Spray paint on used British train tickets, hand finished with acrylic ink.

One of Johnman's renowned train ticket artworks depicts a young couple kissing on a railway track at sunrise. The piece is entitled "Teenage Kicks" and symbolises the excitement and thrill of new romances in life's journey.

144 individual train tickets have been glued together to form the canvas. The tickets have then been spray painted with transparent paint applied via the use of intricately, hand-cut stencils. The highlights have then been applied in a loose, free-flowing style with acrylic ink.

This unique (1 of 1) Sunrise Edition uses a mist of coloured, transparent spray paint across the skyline to give a hint of sunrise.  By 'happy accident' the manner in which each ticket reacts differents with the coloured apints has created a blockwork, pop-art effect.

"One thing I love about using transparent paints is the dual element that it gives the finished pieces. One can stand back and admire the artwork or get up-close and personal and see the details printed on the canvas media beneath. Preserving and adding fresh interest to these iconic and historic pieces of British design and culture. 

Titled and signed en-verso along with the media used.
