12 Days of Christmas - 'Pop Vinyl'

The 12 Days of Christmas

It's the final countdown to Christmas so for number 5 in our '12 Days of Christmas' series we blast off with 'Five Superheroes'... Not just any rendition either: these pint-sized powerhouses are from artist Nigel Humphries and his adorable 'Pop Vinyl' series!

Tiny Heroes - Big Heart

"My style is a combination of many influences. Being a self taught artist I studied many artists particularly the techniques of the old masters which I have adapted to suit my own way of working. So I suppose my style would be considered quite traditional but with a quirky element... My intention is to bring a smile to people’s faces. You could say that my customer base is mainly people who are fun loving of any age who appreciate attention to detail and like something a little bit different without being too obscure. It is interesting when I exhibit my work to watch people being drawn to my subject matter. It is quite magical. It is a great outlet. It allows me to channel my creativity and I see each piece as a new challenge. It also gives me a sense of accomplishment, especially if the piece has been particularly difficult to paint..."

Epic Christmas Presents

Humphries irresistible characters are based on toys - particularly the 'Pop Vinyl' style big headed collectables gracing mantelpieces, shelves and desks across the world. Drawing upon his own childhood, Humphries has also included the time-honoured kids tradition of providing action-packed dioramas: taped up in the background of course! The result is a heady mix of nostalgia, contemporary superhero movie zeitgeist and unpretentious fun - underpinned by a formidable technical skill and beautiful use of colour.

With Originals and Unique Editions available; these small but perfectly-formed works make the ideal Christmas present for the kids - and big kids - in your life! With Marvel and DC characters represented: you can even assemble your own Avengers or Justice League ....Even pit your favourite heroes together in mortal combat!
