Cartoon Canvases by kaNO

The four pieces of original artwork that make up the Cartoon Canvas Series were created by kaNO for the Street Tribes show he did with Jesse Hernandez earlier this year. Each painting features an iconic cartoon character painted in kaNO’s classic style. The Cartoon Canvas Series includes Papa Smurf, Popeye, Marvin the Martian and Mickey Mouse.

As kaNO explained, “I wanted to do something fun for this set of canvases, so I decided to paint 4 of my favorite cartoon characters. I wanted to see if I could recreate these characters from memory while adding a subtle twist.”

Each piece is entirely painted in acrylics on a 10 inch x 10 inch stretched canvas, and all four are available for purchase right now at The kaNO shop for $300 each.
