As the name suggests, this is the mixture of the word -fruit- and -utopia-. I was inspired by the thoughts of designing a utopian society - and the classic version of an artists subject - the fruit bowl. If you look closely you can see me, Roger dog and my son living in fruitopia.
The Fruit and Vege Exhibition
I had also explored this concept before when i was living at a wildlife park and displaying my work at the local fruit and vege shop. So I drew a series with names like -Peacocks in a fruitbowl at night - and - Chukkar Partridges in a Fruitbowl at Sea ...(nobody ever bought that one - I wonder why)-
