Many of Billy Connolly's surrealist drawings are based on his own life experiences and this is one such example. Featuring his trademark monochrome characters, this piece sees Billy portray two figures flying kites of contrasting sizes. Flat and yet full of movement, this piece also forms part of Billy's latest sell-out collection Born On A Rainy Day which showcases his Escher-esque surrealism and no-holds-barred comedy.
Conceived while on tour in Canada in 2007, Born On A Rainy Day began on a drizzly day in Montreal when Billy impulsively brought some felt-tip pens and a sketchbook. Since then, his drawings have evolved to express complex ideas of liberation and surrealism whilst retaining his original spontaneity, humour, and fun.
This artwork comes displayed on deckle-edged Aquarelle Arches-Torchon 300gsm paper, elegantly float-mounted in a handmade black paint and silver foil, pine and spruce frame.
