Historical Description

Javier Calleja Do Not Touch, 2020 is a painted resin sculpture of a young character with a large, round head and rotund glassy eyes, adorned in a black sweatshirt with an outstretched arm pointing forwards, grey shorts, and stylish lime green shoes. Accompanying the sculpture is a small canvas that boldly exclaims “DO NOT TOUCH”, and the crate it comes in, decorated and signed by Javier Calleja. Following his signature style, the male character has exaggerated features in the head and eyes, bright orange hair atop his head. With a single finger stretched out, Calleja uses this figure to embellish the message he has painted on the canvas, another signature of his style to include an inappropriate message with the eerily cute statuesque figure.

Created in 2020, this painted resin and steel multiple with accompanying acrylic painting on canvas with original wood crate is signed by Javier Calleja (Spain, 1978 - ) in black ink on canvas verso. This work is from the numbered edition of 250. Produced by APPortfolio, London.
