Angela is a beautiful and visually arresting image from eeBoo's 1000 piece puzzle collection. The artist uses thickly layered paint on a canvas made of found objects and scrap metal to create poignant portraits of people he photographs on the streets of London. This challenging puzzle features the work of the talented artist Matt Small, who describes his subjects as “young, dispossessed people, individuals who feel undervalued, who do not have a voice and who are often overlooked.”
About the artist: Primarily a painter, Small has a strong, compelling style, often choosing discarded objects like car bonnets or old signs instead of canvas for his work. “The theme of my work is young, dispossessed people: individuals who feel undervalued, who don’t have a voice, who get looked over.” Small explains how the urban debris he paints on becomes symbolic of the feeling of being without value: “I thought it’d be interesting to connect the two – that oven door, that shelving unit, that piece of trash to someone – I don’t see it like that, I see that it can be something beautiful and worthwhile. That’s how I see our young people too. Let’s look at their potential, at the hope that’s in all of them".
