Kendyll Hillegas, ‘Gummy Bear Blue’, 2017, ArtStar

ABOUT THIS PIECE: As a child, I was the flower girl in the wedding of a family friend. After much coaxing, I only agreed to walk down the aisle once I was promised gummy bears. Once I reached the front, I then loudly demanded my prize. To this day my family loves to tell that story, and gummy bears are still a nostalgic favorite for me. Aesthetically, I love the bright colors and translucency. To me, they’re an iconic childhood food, connected too many memories to count.

ABOUT THIS ARTIST: Kendyll Hillegas is a Boston-based artist and illustrator. She received her BFA in painting in 2008. Her work focuses on capturing the emotional and narrative significance of food and everyday objects. She lives just south of the city with her husband and their cat.

PACKAGING: 30x40" and 40x60" prints are shipped in a special fortified tube to guard against bending or damage. Framed 30x40" prints are shipped via FedEx in a bespoke cardboard box with a fitted interior armature for the frame. We do not frame the extra large, 40x60" print sizes because they are too large to ship without risking damage.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: ArtStar ships unframed prints internationally via DHL. The international shipping cost does not include the tax & duties, which will be the responsibility of the customer. Unfortunately, because of the high shipping cost we do not ship framed prints internationally at this time.
