So I was watching Americas Next Top Model the other day and one of the contestants remind me of those fabulous Keane Big Eye Paintings from the 60's.
I have a few scattered about my garage and home. My favorite are the kitty ones.
I used to see these all the time at Thrift stores and yard sales and swap meets as a child because they prints were pretty widely distributed back in the 60's and 70's. They have become very collectible for hipsters and Indie kids. They make a really nice addition to that Kitschy home. They are so retro and now days you will find a lot of great artist replicating the oh so sweet yet a little freaky paintings.
They is something that is just so morbidly beautiful about those tall lanky children with the big sad eyes!
One day when I have a home with a long dark hallway ..I am going to line the whole hallway with my big eye paintings ..just purely to spook my friends out!
