Oil on Canvas: Trash No. 2 by IMDWDW Oil on Canvas: Trash No. 2 by IMDWDW
By giving the the coke cans a high class rendering, I wanted to question whether we are placing too much attention and value on consumer products.

OMG This is so realistic! Recycling 4ever! Also quite funny is that the nutrition info thing on the Coke Zero thing says 'FACTS'! :)

"By giving the the coke cans a high class rendering, I wanted to question whether we are placing too much attention and value on consumer products."

I'm wondering if you would have put up the patience to paint these cans so detailed if these consumer products had no value to you.
Then again, when painting objects they are no longer just objects (or consumer products in this case), but they become subject of study.

Thanks for pointing that out! I think I didn't make myself clear in the description. I wanted the audience to question that...

Ah no worries.
It's good to think about what we are doing with our world.

When seeing your painting I wanted to try a less detailed version, as I paint with much more broader brushstrokes myself.
Haven't gotten to painting it yet (I don't drink much coke) but I'm interested in what the difference in effect would be.

could you make this into a poster or other print?  I would buy - I drink about 6 to 10 cans of Coke Zero a day.  And the technique of your still is incredible, and I love how there are still areas where it looks like a painting.  Excellent work!

Haha me too!!!!! While I was painting it, I drank a ton of coke so I can collect the cans and use them as models! Yes, it's already available on print! Thank you so much for the support!

Amazing. The texture, shadows and reflections on the cans and on the surface they're on (a hardwood floor? a table?) are perfectly done.
