"This is 'Yo-Yo Man' and he explains himself" said Billy Connolly as he described this artwork. Full of colour and bold figurative forms, the humble yo-yo is at the centre of this piece and reflects a key component of Billy's childhood and personality. Growing up, Billy had a humming yo-yo which gave him "hours of unbridled joy" and statue of Robert Knox in Edinburgh's St. Gile's Cathedral, whose hand famously points to the sky, always deserved a yo-yo according to the artist. "It asks nothing of you... it is just a fun thing", much like this iconic artwork which has been infused with vivid colour.
This, the first 2022 instalment of his highly successful collection Born On A Rainy Day, is replete with dynamic colours that allow his world-renowned figurative artworks to take on new life and meaning. Displayed on 100% cotton deckle-edged paper, float-mounted in a black painted and silver foiled pine frame, this artwork will add a bright and bold touch of musical and comedic history to your home.
