Chupa Chups Art – Surreal Chupas by artist Martin Allen
The eighth in a new series of nostalgia. This one features 2 of my favorite things, my homage to Salvadore Dali whos work I find inspirational and Chupa Chups lollypops which I loved as a kid.
The thing that not many people know is that the great surrealist Dali designed the Chupa Chups logo ‘back in the day’ around 1969…how cool is that? It’s still in use today and remains timeless – pure genius!
About the artist
Martin Allen is a London based artist. Martin came to oil painting through a circuitous route, having drawn for most of his life and being largely self-taught he was eventually re-introduced to oil painting as a preferred medium to create his varied and diverse work. The methods he uses to paint are classic ones, using layered paint applications rounded off by oil glazes. These create, add depth and harmonise colours. He has shown solo numerous times at Goodwood, The Affordable Art Fair and others, been a finalist at the ‘London art Biennale 2019’, alongside various commissions including work for the BP Shipping collection, and most recently Vogue magazine. Martin will be showing at the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead – London May 2022 on stand L8.
