Fans of pop culture and celebrities from the 1980s will enjoy the work of Alan Fears, a multidisciplinary artist who every year releases an annual wall calendar showcasing some of his best work from the previous 12 months.
From Wham and Tears for Fears to The Human League and Magnum P.I., his colourful paintings are humorous, theatrical and always with an underlying sense of positivity. “My style is simple and direct. The theme in most of my art revolves around reminding myself, and everybody else, how great and stupid humans can be, and therefore how great and stupid life can be,” says Fears.
With that in mind, his calendar for 2020 features many of his whimsical paintings from the last 12 months, from ‘He Was Going Through a Messy Divorce’ to ‘Warm Oranges’.
Printed on 160gsm satin paper, the A3 ring binder calendar costs £20 including shipping. Grab yourself one from alanfears.com.
