Item Description

IconCaretDown

Inspired by Rene Magritte’s Son of Man.

I was watching an old Charlie Chaplin movie the other day and I thought Charlie would make a great Egg man.

Egg man in green, you can look for the meaning behind the painting, yes it may come across at first as humorous, quirky, flippant or clever, yet there is a deeper meaning we all have something dark we want to hide and the fried egg is like a mask humans wear to obscure their feelings and emotions he is hiding something from his past he doesn't want to reveal.

You may like to know how my Egg collection came about, when I was a kid at school we would have to take our lunch box to school as there was no kitchen or cooking facilities, when the dinner bell would ring we would all sit on the floor to eat our lunch.
Almost every day I had a fried egg on rice,(we had lots of chickens) the other kids would say, ‘Ta, fried egg again you'll begin to start looking like a fried egg’.

One day I was frying an egg and thought that would make a great face…Now my Eggs are hanging on walls all over the world

My work is displayed in over 37 countries, including some iconic places like Berkeley Square in London’s Mayfair, 5th Ave New York, Malibu beach and Hollywood in California.
