It’s an oft-overlooked genre now, but back in the 17th Century kitchen subjects were all the rage, especially in the northern European countries that spawned the style and in Spain, the nation that gave the earthy, foody still life genre its name – bodegon painting. Less prissy and decorative than traditional still life or vanitas, the genre wedded realism to classical motifs and a practical, pragmatic subject matter. Now affordable art site Art Under a Monkey (named for the fact that all of the art on the site is under £500, or a ‘monkey’ in London marketplace slang) has introduced a range of paintings specifically for the kitchen. So what exactly is it?
Well, if you imagine Warhol crossed with Zurburan you might just be onto something – Marmite jars, Golden Syrup tins and baked beans take on the iconic mantle of a Campbell’s soup can (you can get one of those as well) alongside semi-abstracts of sweets, cakes and cutlery. Created in oil on canvas or panel, they feel a bit more visceral than the common or garden Pop Art print. It’s certainly an intriguing idea and could potentially spark all sorts of theories on the changing role of the kitchen in 21st Century society, but as it’s a Friday I’ll spare you my cultural anthropology musings!
One thing though: I don’t know about you, but my kitchen is a shrine to the stereotypical – the ubiquitous Keep Calm and Carry On poster, some folksy ceramics and a Jurassic 5 album sleeve blu-tacced to the fridge is about as artistic as I get.   Take a look at Art Under a Monkey’s kitchen range by visiting the website here and navigating to Search Art Gallery, then use the drop-down Subject menu to select Art For Kitchens.
