Is that you, Tin?

Here’s an opportunity to obtain a metal portrait by yours truly.

The ‘Tin Man’ series represents an extension of the ‘Tin Can-vas’ series, exploring similar themes utilising recycled tin cans and associated imagery.
Tin Man is a scaled-down production resulting in an artwork affordable to a broad market. The artworks are offered unframed at 382 x 382 mm priced from AUD $390 +GST or mounted within a 400 x 400 mm steel frame from AUD $450 +GST.

Ideally, the portrait will suit a subject who has part of their first name, middle name, surname or nickname that sounds like: ‘TIN’ e.g. Tim, Lin, Kim, Min, Timothy, Tindall, Kindal, Kimberley, Lynette, Wotton, Cotton, Curtin, Whitten etc. A non-tin-sounding name can also have tin portraits produced ‘by association’, incorporated under titles such as: Julie (Lover of Tin); James (Sibling of Tin); Next of Tin (Sally); Bob Jones – the tin bowler.

As a portrait, Tin Man makes a unique and personal lifetime gift, or produced as a set of different ages and compositions, an eye-catching feature in a lounge room, study, office and smaller spaces.

The aim is to one day exhibit a hundred or more of these in a single space – perhaps even in a tin shed.
