More information about this artwork

Brothers Rob and Christian Clayton, known in the art world as the Clayton Brothers, are highly acclaimed for the dynamic and symbiotic pieces they created together between 1996 and 2016. Featuring intensely condensed narratives, their pieces incorporate elements of street art and surrealism. The duo co-authors each of the artworks in an unspoken synergy, taking turns to complete each other’s stories while expressing their individual style and palette. Intuition and improvisation are at the heart of their visceral creations, backboned by an organic and never-ending backstage conversation. Their art relates the personal to the global, representing everyday scenes in which local businesses and regulars from their neighborhood have their own reserved space.

Wanna Sip is a delightful example of the brothers’ energetic and creative artistic expression. The piece appears as a portal to simultaneous realities, rendered in spirited and almost cosmic colors, leaving the viewer with thousand different questions: is the head of the figure meant to be a plant? Are the red lines and brushstrokes referencing the inner workings – muscles, blood – of the figure? Why is the straw positioned closer to the eye than the mouth? The duo challenges the viewer to examine each part of the piece, taking nothing for granted.
