Next time you open a can of coke and throw away the pop tops, spare a thought for Bryan Cunningham who collects hundreds of them to make these amazing pieces on canvas that are held on and stretched using them. You can see an inspiration drawn from his hometown of New Orleans as he uses his skills in painting, silk screening and wood crafting to create unique mixed media assemblages.

Paintings inspired by ‘sensational advertising, those ads in the back pages of comic books promising X-ray vision and he-man strength; sideshow banners depicting nature‚Äôs grotesque mistakes; and the mail order hoodoo spells and powders guaranteed to rid you of your enemies.’ Like to collect some for him?
