  • About the work

Fruity, 21st Century; Print on Paper; 40 × 28 in; 101.6 × 71.1 cm; Edition of 50.

This painting was inspired by the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, shown by the international art gallery Perrotin at Art Basel in Miami in 2019 where it was sold for US$120,000. It was duct[1]taped to the wall and the owner of the gallery stated that `bananas are a symbol of global trade, a double-entendre as well as a classic device for humour`. On the Saturday, New York based performance artist David Datuna ate the banana in-front of a convention Centre full of art lovers and the gallery stated that whilst the banana was indeed consumed, it didn’t diminish the integrity of the six figure artwork which was not destroyed, as the banana is simply the idea. Deborah Azzopardi who exhibited in Miami, was inspired to have the idea of producing and original work of art with a Limited Edition of only 120 copies.

About the Artists

1958 London, United Kingdom

Deborah Azzopardi has been producing her distinctive, playful images for over 35 years. She is determined to enjoy life to the fullest, to express herself creatively, whether or not her work is commercially viable. Essential to her success is painting things that make her happy. As a result, her images are inviting, colourful, and honest. Without any great philosophical mission, she is free to play with the drama and joy of the everyday. She breaks her subjects down into vibrant segments, into moments we have all experienced, and which she has captured forever in paint.

The respect she has gained in publishing reflects the honesty and innocence of her intentions. The viewer is allowed to ponder, without preconceptions, the moments she represents. Her paintings and Limited Editions celebrate the comedy of turbulent relationships, seductions, the fantasies and worries of us all. To possess a piece of her work is to embrace the qualities that make us human, to be captivated by her palette of colour.
