‘Framed Holy Shit’ is a sculpture by highly sought after artist RYCA. The piece is from a limited edition of 75. ‘Framed Holy Shit’ comes framed in a Dark Charcoal Grey grained wooden Box Frame and measures 20mm by 50mm deep.
The work of RYCA has developed something of a reputation in the contemporary art world: the pop-art-meets-street-art style has established RYCA as a leading figure in the evolving street scene and a name to watch. His work incorporates different strains of pop culture to create an aesthetic of skewed nostalgia which is always playful, a little ironic and oh-so spirited. ‘Holy Shit’ was first released at the artrepublic Art Yard Sale on Sunday 5th June 2016, in which some of the biggest names in the contemporary art world came together in Brighton’s Jubilee Square, giving fans the chance to buy from the artists directly.
‘Holy Shit’ is about as comic as things get in the art world: RYCA has created a little figurine of a monk, complete with cassock and rosary, and topped off the sculpture with - you guessed it! - a lump of shit in place of the head. The concept is brilliantly satirical - this is a twenty-first century comment on consumerism - and the final piece (boxed with the caution ‘ NOT A TOY’) is a triumph of contemporary art.
Please note: due to the hand crafted nature of this piece, there is approximately a 3-week lead time on this custom framed item.
