Piece description from the artist
The second of my five fruit painting series.
Paul Reisser was born in Fagersta, Sweden, in 1957 and had his first big art show at the age of fifteen. Self-taught, Paul was inspired by the recognizable styles of "Magritte":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ren%C3%A9_Magritte and "Dali":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salvador_Dal%C3%AD, and later "Warhol":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Warhol.
All of Paul's work is made by hand, using traditional brushes and oil on canvas. His work has been exhibited in galleries in Austria, Switzerland and Sweden; he has been awarded gold and silver in International art competitions; and many of his pop art paintings have been bestsellers as postcards and posters in Sweden.
